We are proud to offer this particular V6 hotend. We have sifted through many sources, to find a offer a high quality V6 clone to you. Since, we service many large printer customers, we have found this particular bundle to be of great value to CR-10, S4, and S5 owners. It comes bundled with a Volcano clone heat block, Volcano style nozzles, and a passthrough thermal tube. This passthrough tube, allows the bowden to travel through, the thermal tube (heat break), and stop at the the nozzle.
You will need to print a mount (see this link) to bolt this hotend to your CR-10, S4, or S5 carriage. I nice part cooler for 40mm fan is (see this link). If you are careful, you can reuse your existing heater cartridge, and thermistor, to save having to join wires. You will also need to print, (or slot exisitng mounting holes) in your Z-axis endstop switch mount (see link for Z switch mount). This is because the hot end will hang lower than your stock hotend. Making the adjustment of the endstop switch is quite simple, once you have the adjustable endstop mount.
An All metal tube for this V6 clone is also available from MacEwen 3D. We do the vetting for you. If it's not great, you will not find it here.

We will be happy to address any questions, you may have during your installation.
We definitely recommend wrapping wires with Kapton / Polyamid tape anywhere it may be pinched. If installing the included Volcano option, small pieces can be applied to the bottom of heatsink, and heater block itself, where wires can be pinched. A little extra protection goes a long way.
We also carry replacement stainless nozzles, fans, and Bowden tube fittings, and all metal thermal tube for this V6. What ever your are looking to do, we are happy to help.
