5 Stars   1979-93 Ford Mustang 5.0 Black Magic Xtreme Electric Fan Kit
By on 11/21/2013
Overall I give this fan a 4.5, I'm writing this to cover some concerns I had and problems encounter during installation. I was very concerned about how noisy it was going to be, it's very quiet and inaudible while sitting traffic. I have a supercharged/modified 93' w A/C - no issues with cooling - but I have very stout cooling system. The mounting brackets are very minimalist for the bottom and the top ones were a little to 'tuner scene' for me...I ended up fabricating some very nice replacements being able to pick up the existing threaded inserts. I have an aftermarket aluminum radiator - which is over twice as thick as the stock - you may not be able to mount your OEM recovery tank using the supplied brackets if you have such a radiator - it hit my A/C and P/S pulleys. After final installation, triple checking the wiring (fan was not operating properly), my kit was shipped with a faulty controller, one call to flex-a-lite and a very short discussion, they immediately sent a replacement controller. Fan works as advertised with new controller.

Not only engine temperature much much cooler over stock, but A/C. Installed this kit and am FREEZING in 110 degree Las Vegas weather. Strongly recommend, plus you free up some HP at the crank. Bump up your Alternator if your still running stock.

Yes, I would recommend this item to a friend!

Best money I ever spent in my car. I adjust it at 160 degrees and stays rock solid. Before that fan the temperature used to go up and down. I feel that should come like that from the factory that's how good it is. If you are thinking to buy this fan you will not be disappoint

Had two 12 in cooling fans that came on the car when I got it and they just weren't pulling enough air. This fan pulls air like no tomorrow. Work great and keeps my engine at the perfect temp

5 Stars   great fit, easy install
By on 6/2/2014
Recently purchased a black magic extreme 185 for my 92' lx. The fit was great. I elected to fasten 2 screws in the front rail of my aluminum radiator for more secure fitting. The temp gauge is rock solid now and the car runs better. Another upgrade that makes this cool little car a better car. The guys at Latemodel Restoration were great!

I recently finished the install on this electric fan kit, and I must say, this is the single best modification I have done to a fox yet. I was absolutely blown away by how much of an improvement in felt power output. Also an indescribable improvement in drivability. The motor idles smoother and more consistent, returns to idle from acceleration smoother and more consistent. It's weird, but it also seems like the car has a lot less of the low rpm "lugging" that is common with these cars. As far as cooling goes, it is comparable to the Lincoln Mark VIII fan in its cooling ability. With the dial on its control module You can essentially, control what temperature range you want your vehicle to stay in. It's absolutely phenomenal. I can say with confidence that when the 408 stroker goes in, there will be no concern about cooling.

There aren't many but I will list some in order to be fair. The control module seems like its of low build quality. A flimsy plastic box that without the utmost care, can be broken during installation. The circuit board is not securely fastened to the inside of the box. Take extreme care when installing the connectors to the board. Also, I felt like the manner in which the connections are made to the board are weak. It's nothing more than a male and female wire connector. With no other provision to ensure they stay secured to each other. I feel like with time they could become weak and separate. There is a very helpful installation video on YouTube from user name XX65XX. It helped me greatly.

Overall, I would say, if you don't have an electric fan already, buy this kit immediately. You will not regret it.

5 Stars   Awesome Fan!
By on 4/6/2015
This Fan was purchased for an 89 Mustang convertible 5.0 GT to compliment an A/C conversion from R-12 to R-134a. The fan fit my factory radiator with no problems. its very easy to install and really does come with everything needed to do it yourself. The quality is exceptional. I originally decided to try and use my factory 75 amp alternator since mostly everything in the car is stock, but that proved to be a mistake. When the fan would kick on, you could feel and hear the load on the engine with severe voltage drop at idle. Even at 2000 RPM, the voltage was below normal. Be informed you will eventually need to upgrade your stock alternator with a 130 amp capacity. If not you might experience premature alternator failure or have a battery charging issue. After I changed over to a larger alternator the load issues went away and voltage was restored back to normal operation. the Temperature control module has a automatic override which will trigger the fan to turn on and off with operation of the A/C compressor. This feature removes the human error of remembering to turn the fan on and off manually. The fan contains instructions along with one line diagram of wiring. You can not go wrong with this fan.

5 Stars   The fan was a perfect with my new SVE radiator.
By on 3/23/2015
The fan works great! The install was easy as long as you have moderate skills of wiring. I had to use a video someone posted to figure out were a couple wires tie into.I used 1/4 inch wire loom as well for a clean looking install. It came out perfect so I finished it off with a moroso overflow tank to finish it off. 3300 cfm is a huge upgrade. Especially if your going to modify your motor.

4 Stars   Worked as advertised

I've got an '86 SVO and the factory fan was just not pulling enough air to cool the condenser in stop and go traffic. This fan does the trick and keeps everything cool as promised.

Install was a breeze even for someone like me who is electrically challenged. I did have to buy some more wire to get the controller installed where I wanted.

Did a lot of research and this is the fan I ended up with. Couldn't ask for a better fan easy installation and works perfect! I have this on a mild built 331 if this helps anyone with the stock radiator and no a/c. Thanks LMR for the great price and fast shipping!

About This Brand

Flex a Lite
Founded in 1962, Flex-a-lite was started by Eddy Davis when he created the first flexible fan out of hand-cut fiberglass roofing material. The flex fan concept was a lightweight fan that would flatten out at high RPMs and reduce engine load for more horsepower to the wheels. In 1978 they patented their first electric fan which helped transform the business. Today, Flex-a-lite manufactures a full range of belt-driven fans, electric fans, transmission and oil coolers.
