Fan Clutch Controller?

hey all,
i saw this for the chevys and was wondering if it could be used on the fords as well. the reason i thought this would be a good piece if towing was because you could control the fan to cool the engine down before you even get started up the hill. or when towing to keep the eots, ects, and tfts, down you could turn it on a little bit so that it is pulling more air through the cooling block. i know that the fan comes on at 230 degrees but i think it would be nice to turn it on my self at like 210 so it never gets to 230.

Fan Controller [1121100] - $299.99 : Pacific Performance Engineering, Innovations in Diesel Performance

you can set it to auto or manual and dial in the amount that you want. just wondering if anyone has seen anything like this for the powerstrokes. thanks

I think our fans are a viscous clutch, so you can't controll them.


Really the only advantage to a fan clutch switch is you can turn the fan off when you go up a hill so you get maybe 25 extra Hp to climb the hill.
