I could be mistaken but I thought it was $2500 for only parts and $3000 installed. Also keep in my that parts are more expensive up here. I heard lots of people replacing dash bulbs for under $5 at dealerships where the cheapest bulb I can get at a dealer up here is $6. Not really significant difference but still.

Well it turns out, unfortunately I wasn't mistaken and we get screwed up here by Toyota. I realise this looks like I just made it up on Excel, but believe it or not this is what the parts guy printed out for me. Thankfully he is willing to reduce the price by 25% but it will still be over $2000 with taxes. I'm debating on calling a dealership in northern new york to see what their prices are, might be worth it to take a drip down.

EDIT: Just got off the phone with TJ Toyota in Potsdam, NY. They want $806.76 per manifold (says there both the same price...wierd) and $23 for the gaskets so definately worth the hour and half round trip.

I don't know about the rest of you, but in my experience with headers is if you think you have problems with exhaust leaks with your manifolds, you are in for a whole other experience with headers. I have had several in some old cars and never had one that went more than 10k without some kind of leak. I would strongly suggest hanging out at a track and talking to people if you have never used them before. They typically are a royal PIA to install then even harder to keep from leaking. There is a reason you don't see stock headers. I am not trying to be a negative nelly here, but there is no chance I would put headers on a daily driver.

I agree with you. I cannot imagine putting an exhaust (aftermarket) let alone headers on my 4runner.... I doubt it sounds good first off and the power gains still would not impress me to be honest. I'd rather put the money into a "fun" car, unless of course you have some fun in your runner. Every car I've had so far that I put headers on...well it often wasn't worth it between the cost and power gains.

The noise is cool when it's a car you don't drive everyday but I can imagine my migraines being much more frequent with headers in my 4runner.

I guess if they're cheap enough and the install isn't bad, sure go for it if it's something you like.

I would be interested like the rest as long as it passes smog tests in Vancouver Canada. I've already started looking into some custom made stuff but its big bucks.

This would is great, Thank you. Username "Mr.Banks" is from your area and is the service too and said he is willing to help out with testing as-well, but he would only be available at the soonest late June/July. If there is a spike in interest on these headers, would you be willing to do it sooner?

This is my first post, but I wanted to chime in to say that I would be interested as well. I'm located in the SF Bay Area and would also vote for the legal version.

Hey Callum, This is a nice site that I use to look at diagrams and get some pricing to see how much my Canadian dealer is messing me vs the price over the Cdn/US border. I send stuff to a freight forwarder warehouse on the new york border, Then when I get a chance I go pick it up.

MANIFOLD. Fits: 2003 TOYOTA 4Runner SR-5 4700CC 32-VALVE DOHC EFI, AUTOMATIC 5-SPEED | Village Toyota Parts



I've had mine welded twice. Noise is back. Not sure if it can be welded again. That is what Toyota would do if under warranty it seems. Mine was done by a Mr.Muffler place.

If I'm following this thread right, it seems if these headers get made it would only be for 2005-2009 V8.

Yah, but it's always the shipping that ends up killing me. I bought my Volant CAI off ebay from Texas, list price $230 ended up being $310 to my door with shipping and duty charges. But I'm going to look into one of these freight forwarders.

I've got a buddy that ships stuff to a place in Massena so i'll have to get the info from him, cuz we definately get screwed on OEM parts up here. I was thinking of getting them welded, but i'm just gonna bite the bullet and buy new manifolds...I don't want this problem creeping up every year.

And yes unfortunately everything awesome is for 05+ v8s (ie: headers, supercharger)

Not to derail the topic, but how many of you are having issues with your V8 exhaust manifolds and at what mileage? This is the first I have heard of a commonly occurring issue with the V8 manifolds. I have an '07 with the V8 at just under 70k miles with no issues.

Any chance some of you can chime in with how many miles you had before the cracked manifolds surfaced and what part of the country you live in? Premature cracks and failure of exhaust components would not surprise me if you live in the rust belt.
