    Im looking to remove my stock fan for an electric one. Does anyone know of a proven bolt-on kit that can increase MPG and horsepower? Im really not looking to fabricate, just purchase and install.
    I have a 1st Gen 04 Tacoma PreRunner 3.4 V6

    Check out Pb2themax car domain. He has an awesome electric fan conversion. That would be the one I would do. I'd post the link for you but I'm on my phone.

    You can go to Summit Racing and check out anything they've got to sell. All you have to know is how to do basic wiring and use a tape measure (to figure out how much space you have to work with.

    They carry Flex-a-Lite, among other things. The dimensions for each fan are listed, as well as what they produce/require. I installed a Black Magic fan on my old Taurus when I was 16. Pretty easy.

    I don't think it's going to help you hardly at all on MPG--it'll equate to the same difference as lighter-weight pulleys. What you will be able to do is eliminate a source of noise, and adjust the system to turn on and off whenever you want. It would be excellent for anyone who runs a winch or likes to crawl, because most fan kits allow you to turn the fan on even before the thermostat kicks on.
