Oil cooler fans

Ok guys. I'm interested in these oil cooler fans that just plug and play into your acc switch and are virtually unnoticeable behind the oil cooler. I've looked into Big Sky Fans, and CDA VTwin.
I was curious if anyone has installed these, and what you think. They aren't expensive, I just was wondering if they work worth a shit.

Thanks,
Loner

I have the Big Sky Fan. It works great for me and easy to instal. I have mine on a manual switch.

'Have the Big Sky Fans on the Aux switch.

The BSF have dropped and stabilized the oil temps.

Highly recommend.

I run the Ultra Cool as well. So far I have been very happy with it. Comes on automatically at 260 degree oil temp and has a green LED light to let you know it is on.

I run the fans from Big Sky. They work OK. I had an instal issue with needing to space the cooler forward about 1/4 inch.

If you just want to keep the oil temps down, then they'll do the job. If you need to keep the motor temps down, then you'll need to look at some head/jug fans. Wars Parts Works has a set that work well.

I don't even watch my oil temps anymore, I just watch the head temps.
