  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

Yes, I would recommend this item to a friend!

  great fit, easy install

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!

Yes, I would recommend this item to a friend!

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

Yes, I would recommend this item to a friend!

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. Shop Latemodel Restoration for Flex-A-Lite electric fan kits for your Mustang or Lightning.
