E-fans?????

Does anyone know someone that is or is trying to use e-fans on our trucks? I am very interested in this mod if it is even possible.

Flexalite makes a kit for our trucks, but it won't keep up with heavy loads.

I have heard the same thing. The work great hauling light loads or when empty but they won't move enough air when working hard.

I've heard things go both ways that e-fans will or will not move enough air. I've actually created a thread some time ago on this, and there was some interesting information regarding tossing in some Taurus efans that move PLENTY of air even for guys who long-haul and hit the mountains.

Huh, i have never heard anything about using taurus fans. I wonder how much more air they move over the flex a lites? Those are made for the PSD so i wouldn't think the taurus fans would be better but anythings possible i guess.

Research the taurus dual electrical fans flow just as much or more than flex a lites. And you can find them in the junkyard. Direct bolt in too (pretty much).

Its odd to me because the technology is here to have an efan work better than a motor driven one. To think no one has come up with a solution is beyond me.

Well thats a cool mod then if you can get taurus fans at a good price! I wish there was a horton style on/off fan clutch for the super duties. They work great on semis. They are air actuated though which would be a problem without on board air.

The guy who did the writeup for the taurus fan installation actually came up with a way for them to pre-program when to come on/off. It's a really neat setup. And these fans can be had for damn near pennies in the bone yard.
