Cooling fan

Has anyone fitted electric fans to the 6.4 with out spending $600 on Flex-A-Lite?

I'm interested in this as well. Ya can always be a little cooler...

I couldn't even find a Flex-a-lite to fit our trucks either though.

They have them with some sort of relay the runs with the truck computer. One MAJOR flaw with Ford! There has to be some way to bypass that or use electric fans on another model that's equipped with the same computer controlled setup.

Ouch! $669.95 is a pricy upgrade for sure. I would think that someone would have found a solution on here for something else. I'm surprised no one has chimed in yet with any thoughts.....

Are you talking in addition to, or in replacement of, the stock fan? Normally the electric ones just cant pull enough to replace the stock one. If you want to add on one, you could always do a universal fit one and run it up to a switch or upfitter.

this is exactly what I was thinking of doing on my early 04 as I will tow heavy from time to time and live in the mountains and was concerned about high oil temps with the bpd towing heavy. seemed an easy fix to get a little more flow.

I was looking at these two

Looks like it would work. My problem is not only am I looking for a way to replace my stocker with electric fans but I also race the truck so it will help with HP and TQ. I just think it's ridiculous the Ford makes it to where the cooling fan and A/C run together through the computer. 2 15" fans "of good quality" with a shroud should do the job just fine. It's the over ride part I'm stuck on also.

I was going to do this in addition to the stock fan. if you wanted more control you could put in a manual over ride switch on or under the dash. just my $.02

Well honestly...I was going to add a 16" to the front of the IC. Seems like a good idea being I live in the ******* part of Texas. Right now I need a clutch for the fan. Thats where all this stated. So I was looking into alternatives to spending 6 bills on a electric set up from Flex A Lite
