I thought about those for mine, just didn't do it, curious how they will look. FYI, smaller center bore if you weren't aware already...

I already modified one to fit my spacers. I think I only paid ~$200 for these a few years ago, so once the tires are up on my AZEVs I may as well give these a shot. Worst case they'll be in FS with some new tires at the end of the summer

Found a cone filter while I was cleaning so I threw this together just to hear the CBV for a bit If you can guess what I used for the MAF bracket you win a zip tie.

Another E-fan died on me Going to pop in my last spare, but its time for me to go aftermarket. Probably going to buy a Spal brand and not deal with cooling issues ever again

or

First one was a Dodge dakota Efan I had in my 242, second one was a 940 fan I let sit outside for a long time. Won't be surprised if my third fan (also 940) goes because it sat out a lot too

Good to hear. The consensus is that they make great fans

Ahh, that explains it a little. Honestly, I've only had to replace the fan on Gwen's 850R when it got noisy, but that was around 280k. I'm running a low mileage JY pull 850 fan as well, been good so far, now that I just cursed myself for the drive to IPD. lol

Hope the trip goes well. Is the 850 fan lower profile than the 940 one?

Found out why the fan quit



Instead of messing with mounting another 940 fan, I'm waiting for a Spal to get here since it will actually last and be worth the effort to mount it nicely

Waiting for an O2 sensor and distributor seal kit to arrive. Swapped the wheels on some of my diecast in the meantime and came up with a decent version of this car

Man, you need a chipset so you can ditch the EGR. Makes life so much easier for manifold swapping, performance, all that jazz...
