    Curious as to if anyone has used this controller

    I love the concept. Fully integrates with the vehicles computer and brakes rather than be inertia driven. I could also unplug it when it's not in use, and not put holes in my dash.

    Also, how does the factory cooling system (5.3L) hold up?

    It's an interesting design.

    The stock cooling is fine as long as the fan clutch is working properly. It can look like it's fine but when you add some heat, a load and A/C, she'll get hot and A/C won't work well. It's the same electro-viscous clutch as the 4.2L up to 2007. 2008-09 used a thermal clutch.
