Don't just rip out the fan . . you have to change the thermostat to a lower temp (80c), and the fan switch has to be the right one (among other things). That way the coolant starts circulating earlier than normal to avoid overheating. The mod works great only if you do it right.
and dont forget to change water pump w/ metal impeller... btw how much temp does an oem thermostat could withstand??
