Let me add some pictures.
Got BEHR fan for $199 shipped from here: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...=STRK:MEWNX:IT

Work in progress:


I am so glad I had to mess with mech fan removal for LAST time!

Now, need to cleanup the crap off the condenser and begin to assemble back.

Ok, job's done!

I tested it by idling and monitoring coolant temp (func 7.0). Fan engages at 90C at slow speed (no A/C) and if I turn on A/C and temp rises up to 92C the fan starts to work faster and temp quickly goes down back to 90C. But even at high speed its noise is a whisper in comparison with aux/mech fans' noise. Later will do a test drive.
