Ghetto has it right, you need a shroud, otherwise it`s defeating the purpose. There are 2 types of clutch units, thermal and non thermal, a thermal unit freewheels and operates when a certain tempature is reached. A non thermal operates mostly all the time except at freeway speeds. The thermal is the way to go for a street machine, since it freewheels a majority of the time it`s not costing you much power compared to a solid or flex fan.
