Electric Fan for 6.0?

Why does nobody make a bolt on kit for an electric fan setup on the 6.0? If you have a 4wd 7.3 they make one, but not for us 6.0 guys. what is the reasoning? The Flexalite 7.3 fans move 6,000 CFM of Air!! Say it limits CGVW of like 18,xxxLbs. So I'm assuming our OEM fans are moving probly 7,000 CFM of air? anyone know?

I posted a thread about this last year and everyone said stay away from the electrics, cause they don't really seem to work as good as they claim

The 6.0 fan is rated at 10K CFM. Finding an electric to replace it might be difficult.

HOLY COW!!!! 10,000 CFM!!! Yeah, nevermind... Not doing this mod. Yeah I know mechanicals are so much more reliable & durable and push way more air, but on smaller engines. it's a great mod. Just wanted to re-look into this issue and see if some company came up with something. I'm sure the MPG gains would be great. but at 10k CFM, you'd probly be pulling 100 Amps. Ok, issue done and over with. Thanks guys, and thanks for the Spec... never knew.. 10k cfm.

You could get away with a good electric fan if you don't tow. My fan clutch doesn't engage unless I'm towing a heavy load in the summer.

Banks Powerpack system

I was contacted by a banks rep. I sent him All the imformation of my truck, And he says I will be getting 4-5 mpg more with the upgrades, His price was 3,990 at the door. I have a freind in the snowmobile club that owns a parts store he says he can get it for 3,200. 4-5 mpg thats an extra 190 miles to a tank . The truck is stock 07 6.0l with 4.10 gears fat bottom with stock 17" wheels. with fuel @4.69 a gal. and going up,I'm really thinking of going this route,Some members say go with the sct, any suggestions?, Not looking for speed. Looking To save fuel. Any body have or had the power pack system,if so what is you in put, Thanks for your input.

What does $3200 get you? Cause for 4-5 mpg better you could just get custom tunes from DJ's and an exhaust, maybe an intake but i think the stocker is pretty good. Banks stuff is way over priced. I haven't seen many people running banks stuff on here. Most go with custom tunes. I think you cuold probably get tunes for around 400. I haven't looked into it much though, cause i have a 7.3.

If the banks rep didn't ask you what you are getting to start with then the 4-5mpg is just a number they throw out. There are some decent custom tunes out there that will get you close to or that. I would start by taking that 3.5 grand, replacing every filter on your truck (air with a performance one), find a good economy tune, and get an exhaust. Depending on how bad your filters are/what kind of milage you get now that could rocket you or give you a good boost.
