    Whats the difference between the v6 and v8 cooling fans they look just alike on the site I was searching. I'm asking cause the v8 is cheaper.

    V8 uses a two speed fan. V6 uses a single speed fan.

    If a single speed fan is used in a dual speed application, the fan will run only on low speed. The fan would shut off when the PCM called for high speed fan. Overheating is the result.

    If a dual speed fan is used in a single speed fan application, the fan will run only on low speed. The V8 low speed fan is slower than the V6's.
