    K&N cold air, installed fog lights, billet grille, debadged,de-flapped.
    I have a 2013 prerunner with the 2.7l i have added a k&n intake, with no real gain, i was wondering about an electric fan conversion for the newer tacomas, if they make one or what? Seems like it would free up some power.

    Flex-a-lite was the only kit that I know of, and not sure if there is support for 13 or not. I have the kit on my 09 4.0, and in summary, I could not feel any difference from a performance perspective. Quieter startup, fan only comes on when it's needed, frees up space in the engine bay.

    In hindsight, not sure if it's worth $350-400.

    I don't know why you buy the kit if clutch is electronically controlled like the dodges or doesn't void warrenty or what? I have a 1100 cfm fan on my 01 wired to a relay and thermostat then to ignition switch with a bypass switch hooked to a/c button about a 110 $ set up keeps mine nice and cool.

    There are no gains to be had. The motor still has to power the electric fan via more load on the alternator.
