Question about E-Fan

I've seen a lot of people have electric fans now. What is the benefit to having one?

Less weight on engine, less work for engine.

ok so if I was to buy one, what other expenses would I have to look forward to because I know the fan is on a pulley, so would I have to do something to that. What about my alternator? Is it strong enough to power it keeping in mind I have a 2amps and a sub running on it as well.

You take the old fan off the pully and that's it. Click on my car domain, I have a how to for removing the stock fan on the 3.0's and a e-fan install how to.

Not sure about power, someone else can answer that question.

Many of us got our fans from Jusnes.

Here are some more benefits listed on the site.

* better GAS MILEAGE
* smoother and quieter running engine
* MORE POWER, without the parasitic loss of your old mechanical fan
* less wear and tear on the engine and water pump
* A/C cools faster in the summer
* engine warms up faster in the winter

Yeha i've heard of people getting 10-15 extra miles to a tank of gas on my friend's 4.0. I have a taurus 3.8 fan i got from a junkyard for ten bucks. I haven't had the time to throw it on yet though. lol. I'm a lazy bum. I need to go out and buy everything else for it.

I was getting better gas mileage until I got my 32's, then it went back to stock mileage.

so I could just buy an e-fan at a junkyard from a taurus or should I spend the money and buy one from jusnes? I mean if their pretty much the same I dont see why I should spend 160 bucks.

Well with Jusnes you get the controller and the peace of mind that its new as opposed to a used one from the junkyard that might not work. I suppose you could go the junkyard route, save some money and give it a try. Too bad more people aren't responding. You caught the tail end of the whole e-fan craze. There was a big group buy a while ago and I guess everyone is sort of e-fanned out and aren't clicking on topics related to the e-fan.
