What's the water issue, if your talking about the electric fan it has do with being able to shut the fan off when in or crossing deep water. Avoids damage to the fan blades.

Just get a Whipple (if available used somewhere and if you could afford it) and call it a day.

Nope, your not wrong! Based on this R-F poll on e-fans, the majority think
there is no advantage to an e-fan, and you risk overheating your engine
if you install one:

Market supported by the performance mod manufacturer, but not technically supported, or supported by any independent testing!!

It's too late now, but check these out:

Here are just a few other scam companies, including the Pulstar Plugs! I find it interesting that the Tornado site includes a bible verse so you might think they are legit!!


http://www.petro-mag.com/

http://www.tornadofuel-saver.com/?gc...FQo2GgodfTuRCA

http://www.pulstarpulseplugs.com/default.asp?KID=3340

Great examples of how companies prey on people, who don't have any technical (or engineering) background!

Let's do this...

1) Bring a stock 2001 3.0 with 4.10 gears, 4x4, automatic, 31 inch tires and between 110K & 120K on the clock.

2) I bring mine (exact same vehicle) but with useless modifications that have been proven a rip-off or waste of time.

3) Run the 1/4 for pinks, I win I get your truck, you win you get mine.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ ++++++++++++++++++
OR

4) Use everything available at your disposal to make the best choice possible on improving our vehicles for our application.

5) Common sense can not be replaced by opinion.

6) Listen to what others say, keep the best and trash the rest.

In the end don't do the mine is bigger than your's thing*********Or I'm right and your wrong***********Do what works for you period, it's your ride and money.

Man your never wrong are you?? Maby not all aftermarket mods increase hp or are worth the increase of hp but there are some. I never see you say something is better then OEM and that isnt always true.

Just so you no I probably wont read a real long post so, if you reply to this and want me to read it please make it short.

Bob, you are right on what you point out but the end user is a independent tester. The test results {good or bad} for the product is decide by them. There is more junk for sale than quality proven items and not all articles are unbiased. I'm done...............................

From personal experience, i think an efan is a great idea. I have one on my Ranger, and also on my mustang. Get the Lincoln Mark 8 fans. They last forever, built to OEM specs, and there is no aftermarket fan that out-flows it. 4500cfm on the high speed, about 3k on the low speed. I have the one on the ranger on the low speed, since it stood cold on the high speed. The Stang runs the high speed, and if it cools a TT5.0 making close to 4 digit numbers, i think i would keep any ranger cool.

I think its 155 hp for the 3.0, 143 hp for the 2.3, and 207 hp for the 4.0.

oldfart is it just me or do you change avatars everyday?

Pretty sure the 3.0 has 145 stock. IMO the newer 2.3's are the way to go if youre looking for a smaller engine with decent power. Better gas mileage almost same horsepower.

wikipedia says the current hp for the 3.0 is 155 and int he past it was 145 so i guess it depends on the year the motor was made.
