    I know a few people have replaced then with a permacool 18" fan.

    Pros- Less engine drag, pushes through lots of air, can be hooked to a temp switch to activate

    cons - if something goes wrong with it, that engine will overheat rather quickly

    I thought about doing this on my 2.7l as well....I think its more work than its worth though. I'm such a mod freak because my last car was a toy...I need to cool it down haha.

    I think PB2themax did this. Check out his Cardomain page.
