Awsome, thanks for the pics! That fan is pretty dam'ed expensive! How was the difficulty level for the install? Any mods you had to do or was it a simple bolt on. Also, how did you adjust the temp thresh holds for the fan (or do they come pre-adjusted)?

Installation is simple. One thing that may be different from my install is that I had the radiator removed which gave me more space to work with. Shouldn't make that much difference. As for the adjustable thermostat........ I tinkered with it a few times and found that it works just fine dead center. Since the probe for the thermostat needs to be within the specified 18 inches of the radiator, I mounted my thermostat control box onto the heat shield of my CAI since the firewall would have placed it further than 18 inches. Other than that, I like the fact that replacement parts are available for this fan. Hope this is of some help.

I'm currently piecing together a Ford Mark 8/ Thunder bird 2 speed fan swap. Got the fan already just need the Relay from "The Hollister Road Company." And I'm debating on making a custom aluminum shroud or just use the stock plastic one and cut the ford fan up to fitting.
