I noticed that the truck was a lot quieter. I hate mechanical fans! The fan that was on the truck before was off balance due to a serious wreck it was in....and they left it on! When I ditched that thing I did notice a difference of 2# less boost at highway speeds. On a side note, what the scan tool read, and what the boost gage read on the dash differed by about 3#...hmmm. The mechanical fan was locked up all the time. I also noticed that it takes VERY little to cool these things off. Maybe less than it did on my 7.3 psd. I had a tiny FWD car fan on there and never had an issue, and I towed almost constantly. Through the mountains and in heavy traffic. Now Im using a 94 Lincoln Mark 8 fan which takes up almost the whole radiator. Thanks for the link, that is the best price I have seen so far...by a 100 dollars.
