    Is this a common upgrade? Seen a fb mustang page convo about how the 98+ is bigger, bolts right into the same spot, etc. I know mine gets a little toasty on real hot days.....

    I'm not sure - though at first glance I'd say the 94-96 is better only because of the shrouding. Fans look to be the same size, but different blade design - and it looks like they rotate opposite directions?

    I haven't seen or heard anyone upgrading their 94-95 cooling fan for 1998 or any other year Mustang. If you're looking for a bigger fan, the Mark VII cooling fan plugs right in to your existing 1994-95 harness plug but you will have to trim the shroud and relocate your coolant reservoir to make it fit.

    This. I had it installed on mine and trimmed.. had the fan controller installed and ripped it off and went back stock because the coolant revisior was in the way. I think 96 98 v8 coolant tank fits perfect with the mark fan.. 94 95 you gotta relocate Crap

    I think I just need to straighten all my fins. They look pretty bad.

    Are you sure that Hi and low are working on your fan? If you engine is mostly stock, the cooling system shouldn't have any problems keeping temps down.

    My stock v6 would get up to 240f (read via elm327 Bluetooth scanner) at a red light or in a drive thru. Replaced thermostat and it hasn't done it again. Slightly unrelated story there but if you're having issues with it getting hot the thermostat and gasket are cheap and worth a try IMO. Not sure if my old one wasn't fully opening or what but it helped.

    I did it. It's here on my build thread above. First page, post #10. You can see the side by side comparison. The 98+ is bigger but does not pull as much air as the 94-95 but because of it's larger size and bigger openings, more air is allowed pass through it at speed. I believe that's why it's designed without a shroud. Also I found that the stock overflow bottle was now in the way when using this bigger fan so I purchased an aftermarket one and relocated it. Been using it for years this way for street and track.
