an electric fan will save horse power cause the engine does not have to turn it.. also eclectric fans, if you get the right size for your car, have a higher cooling capacity during stop and go and low speed driving.

Only save a lil hp because it will cause the alt to do more which takes hp.
for the low speed cooling it is great. That is the biggest problem with normal fans.
Also you have to be careful when working on it tho. Cuz depending on how the fan it wired it could start at anytime the engine gets hot enough or something gets grounded and can take off a few fingers.
So you should unplug it everytime or just watch your fingers.

electric fan is better tho
