Does anyone have an opinion on how the jusnes fan compares to the flx-180 black magic fan from flex-a-lite? I went back to my mechanical fan for the last few weeks so I could pin point certain cooling issues but am ready to put the e-fan back on and was wondering.

Actually since I just installed a 180 I can tell you that it was pretty easy. I used both brackets the came with the kit & they installed nicely. The CFM is actually a lot more & has a real shroud but they are double the price of Jusnes. Jusnes 2750CFM

FAL 180 3300CFM

If you don't have the $$ go for the Jusnes Fan. I opted for the 180 because I live in the desert & it gets rather hot out here along with the fact I seemed to always do an overkill.
I haven't heard any problems with the Jusnes fans not keeping up so it should be a very good option.

I know the flex-a-lite pulls more air, both pull a-lot more air than is required for my 4-cyl. just trying to get opinions of both from those who have them installed. The money factor isn't an issue, I just want to make sure I have the best performing unit onhand when I decide to pull the factory mechanical fan off AGAIN!

Well, I've only had my 180 installed for a week now but its been flawless so far. I have no experience with Jusnes however but theres loads of guys on here that have.

How do/would the Jusnes 2750CFM and FAL 180 3300CFM compare in regards to: gas mileage, power gains, cooling, ease of installation and overall quality?

gas milage and power gains would be the same.....the FAL 180 will cool a little FASTER, NOT better.....the 2750cfm fan on the Jusnes efan is MORE air than the stock mechanical fan pulls......going down the road at speed, neither fan will be on....the air that is forced through the radiator will keep it cool........

as for ease of installation, the Jusnes fan is super easy....hardest part (which is prolly true to both fans) is removing the stock fan.........the Jusnes fan has super-duper quality...it is rugged and strong......i can't say for the FAL 180 fan as i have not installed one nor seen one...

I'll go with the Jusnes fan then. =)

Curious though, is the stock fan always on? The e-fan says: "engine warms up faster in the winter" the only way I can see that possible is if the stock fan is always on, unless im missing something?

And if you know of a good install guide of the top of your head you can link me to it would be appreciated.... otherwise I shall begin the search. =)

Oh yeah, did they ever fix the problem that made l2en's truck catch on fire?

there is a write up here on this website that is under the "How-To" area.....

the stock fan is always pulling air through because it is attached to the water pump pulley....the pull is always turning.....with an efan, the engine will warm up faster in the winter because it wont have that constant flow of air over the radiator when you go out and start it....

yea Jusnes fixed that problem......
