No = TYC
OEM Penstar will not work due to code (forget name).
It's the 3.7l v6 e-fan you use. The OEM has more CFM.
I live where it gets 126* and I use the OEM since it has more cfm. I have keep good notes. Where the OEM really shines is above 105* temps.

ok thanks for clarifying! is there a specific year 4.7l v6 Efan im looking for or are they all pretty universal? not sure i saw a part number for the OEM listed in the thread but after 20 pages i may have missed it

You're welcome!
It looks like their discontinuing it. I'd get it before their gone and only aftermarket is available.

They're discontinuing it? Well that sucks, the Mopar one is way better than the Dorman/TYC ones...

Looks that way and I agree 100%. I went to three mopar sites all say discontinued.
If this one ever failed, I'd return to stock setup and I keep my old stuff with 38k miles on it before i'd put dorman/TYC on.

yea i was just looking at the dorman because it can get it on thurs or fri where the mopar oem doesnt ship till like july 27th but that gap in price is scary lol somewhere quality was sacraficed. im going to call up the local dealership in the morning and see if they got one laying around near by or a better ship date.

I know of someone who used the doorman and the nut came off. Had to fix in a parking lot.
As for CFM (amount of air blown) there is a difference in motor watts between the two. So they cut corners there too.
