Which radiator fan is better: 200 vs. V8?

The front radiator fan in the V8 is driven off the engine.  The one to the
side is electric.  The V8 electric fan motor is more squat (shorter from
front to back) and larger in diameter than the one on the 200q20v.  But the
blades on the V8 look to be a smaller circumference than the blades on the
200.  I didn't measure, but they look as though the 200's are larger.  O
don't think the shrouds would interchange from a quick look.  They
definitely anchor differently.
