Electric fan for more power and mpg
The stock fan on our trucks just screams power loss. On the foxbody mustang the first thing i used to take off was the engine driven fan and i would replace it with a taurus fan. Made the throttle response so much better.
I was reading an article in diesel power about electric fans:
"16. It takes between 10 and 70 hp to drive the cooling fan, so cooling system maintenance can have a significant effect on fuel economy.
DP Diesel Power Note:
Replacing the stock clutch fan with a Flex-a-lite twin electric fan setup is said to recover 27 hp and increase fuel mileage by 6%."
Has anyone put on a E-Fan? I would like to make that my next mod. Not only would it free up power and mpg but make the front of the engine easier to get at for belt changes.
