i dont see any problem with having control of your fan, i've thought about it and its seems nice to reduce even a little strain from the engine and to be able to warm up your car a bit quicker

risky if you don't do it right (use the kit) or if you run boost.. otherwise, you should be fine

I read over those teo posts and my question still remains, so here it is:

I've read that it frees up 6-8hp and car revs up faster, have you guys NOTICED a diff in torque aka better 0-60 time?

not much HP and torque.. and hardly enough to affect 0-60 times. It's a good free mod. Don't expect a ton from a free mod :P I can't honestly speak and say I noticed a big difference because I did it at the same time of putting in s52 cams, chipping and pullies...

Most people report a somewhat noticeable difference. You run the chance of overheating only if you sit in traffic in 100 degree + weather like every day. I haven't even heard of a fan delete going bad.
