Just got done with the first mod on the wagon. Easy but its a start, I did the Home Plate Delete. Only cost me $2.49 for the angle pipe.
Never mind the dirt I havent had a chance t detail it yet I am waiting till I get the wood off.

I actually read up on the bypass and determined it was not really worth the effort. Of course to each his own!

I left the mechanical fan on my Roady, mainly because I live in Texas, drive a LOT, and have had electric fans burn up and fail. Did not want to take a chance on a road trip, and besides it seems to work better with the a/c in the summer. I have a good friend with an Impala SS, and even with both his electric fans blasting, my car pulled more air through the condensor and the vent temps inside were colder.

Honestly I hardly heard the fan in the Roady. It's MUCH louder in my OCC...but I think that's a bigger fan than the Roady had.

The fan sounds badass. But, it looks cluttered in the engine bay with it.
