    I found a man-a-fre 6 to 1 header for fairly cheap and am thinking about installing it on my fj60. I have been told by several individuals that these headers are notoriously hard to install and seal up. Is this true? If so, who makes good headers for an fj60?

    Thanks,
    Andy

    I installed a Man-A-Fre 6 to 1 header on my fj40 and had no problem installing it. Only thing i had to do was use larger washers on the studs.

    Hi Andy,

    Any smog issues where you live?

    I recall a discussion on Man-A-fre headers not too long ago in this forum.
    You might try using the [​IMG] search function above for additonal comments.

    Try searching for the word headers (It helps to change the numbers of days to go back further.)

    Good luck.

    I put a slightly used one on my 40. I have had no complaints so far (7 months). I did double up on the header gaskets and I've had no leaks since. Seems like a decent header for the price. Just my 2 cents...
