Found this on another forum...definately stealing and sharing!
The V6 trucks come with a real E Fan, not the smaller A/C fan, and it mounts directly to the radiator using the same mounts we Hemi guys have. It also plugs directly into the A/C fan plug. It also eliminates the mechanical fan, so you don't have that crank drag anymore! It's on MGH's twin turbo ram and works great. I am going to order one soon and post up pics of it!
I noticed with the Vararam blocking the top part of the radiator, the 180 T-stat and now a good E-fan is essential! Can't wait to have MY pics up!
The fan part number is 55056851AF, retail 222.00, I saw it online for 152.
Cool! Is this something that's really necessary? I'd like to know cfm ratings for each to see if it's worth spending the money. I haven't seen anyone complain about cooling issues with the mechanical fan removal, but cool mod either way. Get's rid of the massive shroud too lol (room for turbo )
Yes, I am a "stodgy" old man who still believes a truck that is occasionally used for towing a decently heavy load needs a real, driven fan. I love electric fans for my cars and even like an additional electric fan on a truck that tows or does real off road 4X4 action. Even more, I like electric fans that also have a manual switch in the cab for the driver to engage in harsh conditions when monitoring coolant temp on an aftermarket data guage system. I've always been a coolant guage watcher when pushing my trucks over the years while towing and 4-wheeling, so having a bit of overkill in the cooling department has always been my normal. But like I said...I'm an old, anal scaredy-cat when it comes to my cooling system...LOL!
Hey Timmy, any more on this fan? JW if you went forward with the swap or plan to. I removed my mech fan and so far (winter) haven't noticed any issues at all with the stock AC fan cooling the engine (with the tuner adjusted settings).
