yes, i believe it will ...i just ordered one from lcengineering . They will most likley be shipping it out by next week when i get it i will plan on a dyno test (time for another anyway) i will let you know, however for 65.00 buck you cant go wrong .
for the most part you are correct, however the flex fan is lighter less bulk to spin and the clutch fan took more power from the truck... as soon as i can find a electric fan for my 96 taco i would love to install it asap .
I bought a Hayden electric fan from Pep Boys. It works great. It doesn't have to be made just for your truck. They are made to fit anything. In the new Minitruckin, Flex-a-lite makes a dual electric fan for the tacoma.
Bought the Hayden fan at Pep Boys. They also have the relay harness that goes into the radiator so the fan is automatic. I bought the 14" fan. The 16" one was another $50. Not sure where to buy the Flex-a-lite. I know they have a web site.
