Just keep it stock- what's the problem? is it overheating? that mechanical fan is one of the greatest inventions ever made- lol

I would get the biggest electric fan that will fit. When you remove the old fan be sure and bolt the fan belt pulley back on. A flex fan is an alternative to the stock fan. Keep the original though.
