    Installing that will require cutting up your $1,300.00 front ehxaust pipe. Are you sure you want to do that?

    I don't think the gains would be worth the effort and extra heat under the hood.

    You failed to factor in the GLEAMING CHROME effect. :doh:

    CJ, if you have your heart set on headers, I have a NIB set for a 93-94 that you can have for a lot less than Marv wants ;) The only difference is the head pipe. I bought them several years ago and never "got around to it"

    IF a blower is in your future I would recommend that you DO NOT install headers. The throttle body is mounted in a manner that makes it very close to the exhaust manifolds (one reason that I never put mine on). In addition, TRD tests have indicated that the OEM 1FZ exhaust manifolds are difficult to improve upon.

    IE, if it aint broke, don't fix it.

    Hmmm, what other TRD test reports are out "there"? And can one get "there" easily?

    MY information came from a conversation held with a TRD engineer. I can't tell you more than that :-X
