E fans

How many of you truck or f150 owners have dual e fans in your truck, and if you do, how do you like them? Do they really help A/C function, cooling, and efficiency? I am thinking about the Flex a Lite 270 fans for my f150. What is the best controller to use with the fan?

Recently installed one of these units on a late model Chevy 1500, 5.7 ...they are working great. The kit should come with the correct controller. Insure that the charging system is able to produce the extra amps necessary to drive these fans....need about 30 free amps. But they do move some serious air.....for some...the noise during engagement may be a bit much....but they do work very well.

I notice that my compressor will cycle off before the vent temp or cabin temp gets to the temperature setting I have set on my climate control system. I wonder if I have a bad cycling switch since I don't know hwy it would cycle off before the temp gets to the lowest setting? Should an A/c cycle the compressor off before it reaches the correct temp or should it run constantly until that temp is reached? I also notice that if I step on the accelerator hard and increase the RPMs the compressor cycles off and the vent temp quickly goes from 50-52 degrees up to 60. Is this normal and would the electric fans prevent the compressor cycling off when I accelerate?
