    Yes it has been done. FAL makes a kit. http://www.flex-a-lite.com/auto/html/toyota-tacoma.html

    No you won't really see a gain in MPG but it will help cool the engine during low speed crawling offroad and in traffic. Also the A/C will work better at low speeds. Lastly you can turn the fan off for water crossings.

    Its a great modification if your doing alot of wheeling. Your engine gets the hottest when your in 4Lo and your revving at high rmps.

    Plus you can save on fan belts.

    Oh. The stock intake is cold air. The exhaust might give you 5 hp on a good day. Long tube headers will cause you low end power but open up at 3000 RPM.

    If you want it do it. I will get it one day.
