REPOST...I DID NOT DO THIS....
Screw e fan, NO FAN!
I got a little excited the other day and decided it would be a good idea to sawzall off my radiator fan. Weird thing is, a week or so later and I think I'm right .
I live right in the city. All my driving is stop and go. Out running errands and such? I've still yet to see the temp gauge hit the 'N' in NORMAL.
It's pretty chilli here now, typically around 50 every day, we'll see what happens this summer, but with how cold these motors run and the carbon build up and what not? How is this really a bad idea? Worst case scenario, motor starts getting hot, crank the heat in the cab.
FWIW - the truck feels MUCH better, esp at low rpms where I always am. I can short shift the shit out of the truck and still have some gut in the next gear. Even if I did install an efan, that wouldn't change. No idea about mpg yet. I'm driving 4 hours north tomorrow - we'll see. Altho this'll also be the first full tank after the truck went up an inch or two and got bigger tires. Regardless, I'll post back.
