From what I've seen both options are available for the 302. I've never had a vehicle with a non-thermal clutch. Wondering if anyone has compared the two as far as fuel consumption is concerned. I will never tow(except my BBQ), with this truck or have any kind of heavy loads in the bed, that's what my F-250 is for. More interested in any potential gains in mpg going to a thermal clutch vs. the non-thermal

Amen to that. Towing with Darth in hot weather with the A/C on. the fan would sound like one of NASA Langley's wind tunnels leaving a stop light on US 301 passing East of DC, once the air coming through the radiator cooled down a bit, it would just taper off.
