unbroken if you remove the clutch fan and just keep the oem efan it's basically the same thing as replacing it with the v6 efan. Just make sure to keep the factory shroud. It isn't shrouded quite as good as the v6 efan but still works great. I've been using it like this for a long time in FL heat without issue. The fan itself is identical it's the shroud that is the only difference.

Ok I don't have a solid understanding of the workings of the e-fan swap. So here are my questions.

1. I take the big mechanical fan/shroud of completely along with the ac fan and place this in where the mechanical went and plug it into the ac fan connector? that simple?

2. the oh so deadly heat. I live in el paso. Its f**king hot. Is it to hot? I do a lot of highway driving between el paso and albuquerque.

Thats about it.....I haven't seen a good write up on this so I never quite grasped the how to or workings of it. Also those that have done it with the '12s hows it working?

Unbroken, Timmy and I changed ours out the same day with aftermarket units and haven't had an issue. The swap is plug and play and it took 5 minutes. The stock fan and the V6 IS different! It is the same size but has a different pitch and moves a lot more air! With the v6 fan and a 180 degree tstat during the Oklahoma summer my temp never got above 183 with the a/c on. It would creep up a little if I stayed parked for a long amount of time, but when it hits 222 and the fan hits high speed holy cow it comes down FAST!

Here is my write up from when I did it. Hope it helps.

so how hard would it be to just wire in a thermostat switch set to 180 to the fan? add to that the 180 temp thermostat there should not be any issues, may be a bit of over kill, but the lower the temp the better.

Alright after reading E.L.D. writeup I think I have a good understanding. Correct me if I'm wrong. For the '12s being that there is no tuning the fan won't engage unless one of two things happens.
1. The temperature reaches the stock temp of 222?

2. The A/C is on?

So if this is the case to avoid reaching that high of a temp when sitting still or driving in slow traffic just turn the A/C on?

moose that's correct.

It is highly recommended not to rely on your memory though, as everyone knows we often forget things and if you forget then your engine will be getting very hot.

It's just a couple of wires to the fan...you can easily wire in a manual override switch to turn it on whenever you want...or tie in an aftermarket controller. It'll be downstream of the ECM so it shouldn't mess with the computer at all.
