Friend of mine ran those on his van, and it sucked pretty bad. There is no shroud so the fan pulls more air from the sides than it does through the radiator.

Taurus fan ftw! Paid $15 for mine from the junkyard. I have a writeup on RPS of my install

In my opinion its still too small for the stock shroud, the stock clutch fan is huge in comparison to that one. I think my friends fan burned out within like a year as well. Also...it being $125, its worth no-where near that much, for that it'd best be the best working fan ever made, in my opinion.

I would steer away from that fan personally. Below I listed the one I have been running for a while now. I've had good luck with it and its plenty to keep my 302 cool with a 2 row aluminum radiator.

ok, what if I can get the fan in question for 20 bucks?

I can always customize the stock shroud to fit the new fan.

"2,950 cfm "

STAY AWAY! Not enough IMO. I use a 3800cfm fan. Wasn't that expensive.

That's interesting D, i've been running my truck for the past 6 months with a 2100 CFM fan I believe and a two row aluminum and have had no troubles. I rarely use the fan, but when out on the dunes a couple months back while being rather abusive to the throttle I ran the fan continuously and never ran into any problems, temp did not rise more than 5 to 10 degrees at most.

How much did you pay for a 3800 CFM fan?
