If you dont tow then it works fine, not enough HP gain for the cost but... If you tow I know of three people that have bought it, installed it, over heated and removed it.

I dont have a fan, but I don't tow, the temp gauge in the middle of summer in Sacramento Ca, never broke 200 degrees. Cruising down the road @70 it stays about 185-190. April in Oregon with road spray it only gets about 160 at the highest sometimes. If you tow you might not get away with it.

I do tow a lot. 25% 2000lbs, 25% 8000lbs, and 50% solo.
I'll pass on it. (I guess there's a reason the clutch fan comes on and pulls hard when hot!) thanks for the opinions.
