OP, to echo what Toren said, this mod is amazing. Last year, pulling 16k+ 5'ver, I was hitting 215+ Oil/230+ Coolant temps while sending my Coolant Pressure sky high pulling the paltry hills of Western MD. This spring, I removed added the BPD 7.3 Fan Clutch and replaced my Mishimoto Radiator with a Performance Radiator (Same one BPD sells and rebrands. They're just closer to me, so I bought direct). Now I barely hit 210 Oil/200 Coolant before I hear the fan kick in and it cools the engine back down. My Coolant Pressure barely hits 12psi. It's been an amazing difference. Obviously, it could be a number of different reasons, but I'm actually seeing better mileage (.5-1 mpg) running empty, and about the same towing. The fan can be loud, but I don't find it to be annoying or constantly running.
The switch for the 6.0 OEM electric fan might have been able to give me the same result, but I have no regrets about making this change.
