Default Aftermarket Cooling Fans

so my 2003 GT has a dead rad fan. i just bought it and somebody installed a NON turbo fan and jumped it to run all the time with the ignition on.

Aftermarket cooling fan is ~$100 and a USED fan from a wrecker is ~$100.

which would you recommend? anybody try one of the aftermarket fans? any good? i am just afraid of the USED fan, since my car already has a well used one in it.

I'd trust an aftermarket new fan over a used one any day.

If the choice is an aftermarket fan for a turbo, than that's my vote.

Thanks! Honestly, I should just ask him if he will ship here. I buy a LOT of stuff from e-bay, the sellers don't always list all the places they ship to...

I just looked again at the listing, it doesn't show a pic..only a tag that says "made in Tiwan"...where are most of the aftermarket fans made? Probably there I guess?
I bought some replacement headlights for my '01 Caravan, they look great..until you look at the back!..Crap! They were only $95 eh..compared to O.E.M. @ $235 eh...I can live with them. But, lesson learned!
