Icon10 E-Fan Install On The Chevy

Got these fans out of an 1997 windstar 3.8l motor...these things will cool the truck in about 5 mins and will drop 2 notches on the temp gauge..and also being that i have a 180 degree stat iam ready for summer!

Looks really good, is that fan set up the same was as the taurus one is where the small one is just for extra cooling but the big one does most of the work?

sorry had to get that out of the way before Bob reads this. Looks really good, is that fan set up the same was as the taurus one is where the small one is just for extra cooling but the big one does most of the work?
i don't know about taurus fans..but i wired my fans to work together...so they both come on not separate...
i don't care if they arnt as reliable mechanical fan suck period..get stuck in traffic with the a/c is on and you are screwed on a hot day.whereas the efan moves alot more air than a mechanical fan..and those fans are MOTORCRAFT FANS...THEY ARE OEM FORD WINDSTAR FANS

Changed all 3 O2 sensors because check engine light has been on for one bad one..cleaned the nasty k&n filter and got fans and damn what a difference the throttle response has..i bet i can see around 18 mpg city out of it because i have been getting 15 city not being easy with the petal....this is a video after i have been driving with the a/c on for 30 mins..

yea i'm not afraid of mixing breeds..i love my chevy though...don't think i could get rid of her..haven't had a single issue with her since i got it other than a full tune-up, tires, and upgrades......next big project is pulling the bed and cleaning the frame...shes got surface rust..nothing bad i just like a black frame not reddish..its not bad for being a Florida truck most of its life

is your radiator the same size as the rangers? because that would be a pretty cool fan to put in the rangers and it probably moves ALOT more air than the single 16" that are common for rangers

Scott and my emails are set up to the same account and I see his when they come in. So I see when someone complains about a thread. Usually curiosity gets the better of me, so I have to look.

WHY!!!! would you name call, I mean come on grow up. This is not kindergarten and his dad is better than yours!!! You have your opinion and he has his!! How hard is that??

I mean the point of the thread is hey look what I did? State your opinion and then drop it!

Ok I said my .02
