I Know The Advantages Of Having An Electric Fan, But I Dont Want To Spend Close To $300 For The Dual Flex-a-lite. I Have An 03 Ext Cab 3.4l V6 And Was Wondering If There Was An Electric Fan From Another Vehicle That Would Work Will With The Tacoma.

THERE IS A 3.0L AND A 3.8L. I DONT KNOW WHICH WORKS BEST. MEASUREMENTS SHOW THAT THE 3.8L WORKS BEST. ANYONES OPINION WOULD HELP.
Maybe Joe Mauma will post.
When I asked this question on the old board he had all the info on how to adapt a Taurus fan to the 3.4, and the benefits/negatives of doing this. ;)

I used a different fan for my setup. It was a permacool which pushed high cfm's and drew little power.

I had the fan on my truck for a year, but removed it because it was a waste of money which didn't benefit my truck in any sort of way.

Did you notice any gain in mpg?

I have a flexlite setup and have had no problems, but it's not really a worthwhile mod as the power (maybe just a little at freeway speeds) and mileage (at most +0.5mpg) gains are pretty minimal.
