Anybody run a bolt on flex-a-lite fan or something similar ? Any reviews ?

Need a fan and thinking of trying one . But it's steel and needs a spacer .

I don't think he's talking about the electric one, Ryan. My buddy ran one of those for a while. Ungodly loud wind noise. Car kept cool though. I personally hated it and so did he. He's running electric now.

Sorry , i meant a regular bolt on flexalite fan . It doesn't have a clutch so you have to use a spacer .

I was wondering if any gains could be had from one of these . It says it makes less drag at higher rpms because of the flex .

But really i would go with a oem fan if i can find one around here by sunday .

Don't worry I've been doing the same. But yes they are a bit noisy.

I ran an anodized flex a lite in my Camaro. It worked great with no noise. On the other hand I recently took a look at a built 84 Chevy Step Side 4x4 with a flex a lite in it and the fan was louder than the exhaust. I read up on them when I put in my aluminum radiator, waterpump, and theromostat into my 5.0. From everything I read they weren't recommended for the Mustang. I would leave the stock fan or go with an electric.
