Fan isn't missing any blades. It's just the angle of the dangle that makes it appear to be missing a blade. Cool man! Using a fan so suck the air out from the engine compartment. Who'da thunk it. Come on man! Post a pic of the whole truck. We're all dying to see View attachment 548529
it.
When one pays cash for a toy and will never sell it. There's not much I won't do to step outside the norm to improve function and bring along forum 🤸‍♂️. I once was a helicopter sheet metal mechanic 🧑‍🔧

There's only one other lightning in my whole county and it's black and completely stock 🍆 I'll post a few pictures later on. Might even put my shroud on 🤭

Carbon fiber hood vents on an aftermarket hood. I didn't do them, a guy on here who does body and paint did them. I followed up though, by putting the same on my 2007 Mustang. Made a template out of sheet metal so I can duplicate it any time. Already done tow other vehicles that weren't mine.

I had considered adding extraction fans way back in the day. They would have been thru the fender area and really out of site. But with enough data posted when forums were hot, I determined them to be of little value as IAT temps dropped to a reasonable level under acceleration. That was the only time I really cared about losing the heat.

Bingo. Under hood temps have almost zero effect on iat1 or 2 once the vehicle is moving.
