Message:
I'm considering removing the stock fan and installing an electric. I found a good deal on a Perma-Cool 14" that moves 2950cfm. My Dak has a 5.9L with a 180 t-stat and Redline Water Wetter. Is this fan going to be enough to keep things cool under the hood??? There's also another electric fan already installed in front of the stock fan.

That e fan infront of the rad may block airflow.

I have heard varying degrees of success with the V-8 and electric fans. If you live in the south, and have to deal with a lot of city traffic, it may not cool enough. The fan in front of the radiator should be a pusher, so I would assume that would still help since the one in the back would be a pusher.

pusher fans are on the outside of the radiator looking in

puller fans are in the engine compartment and suck air in

Ive got a permacool 2950cfm 16" e-fan mounted behind radiator with the stock shroud and Ive had no problems with overheating in summer. I do live in Michigan but Ive had it in 80+deg days sitting in traffic and Ive seen it get to 200-205 tops with a 180 t-stat. You may want to find or fabricate a tighter shroud but it pulls a lot of air. Summit has them for under $100.
