In such a case, after the suspect part has been received and approved for a warranty replacement, the purchase price for the replacement will be refunded. Stay on it, it drops to the teens. It is 50 State Legal when installed on the appropriate vehicle per the Manufacturer Application guide and Installation Instructions. The superchargers ain't cheap :x I'd say the 2. Sorry if I missed it in my search.
I have no idea of the horsepower gain but it's a very noticeable amount. Smooth transition bends allow for low turbulence, increasing horsepower, torque and improving throttle response. In 03 or 04 when we bought ours I really wanted a stick. In his spare time he enjoys keeping the shiny side up on track days. Installing headers along with your aftermarket exhaust system can further improve the performance of your Tacoma.
The design of an exhaust header is often much less restrictive than that of a factory exhaust manifold, allowing the header to scavenge or extract gasses out of the engine and send them on down the line that much more efficiently. The idea of forced air induction is more air and more fuel for a bigger bang. There was a guy on a forum from the Boston area that had one on a Tacoma. The biggest performance gains associated with headers are found on engines that are either turbocharged or supercharged, as forced induction setups are able to take the best advantage of improved gas flow. All warranties are generally processed within 2-3 business days of Trail-Gear receiving the parts from you. But from what I recall the mileage was worse than a 3.

Ours with an auto barely manages 20mpg on the highway with stock tires. Since a gasoline engine is essentially one big air pump — the more air you can get in, and the more exhaust gas you can suck out, then the more power you can generate — headers can play a key role in freeing up extra performance that has been lurking inside your motor. Headers are typically made out of either stainless steel or ceramic-coated material. I am very happy with my Thorley - my truck sounds great and has lots of power but I dont know how much this has to do with the Thorley header. It's spiking 21 psi falls off to about 13 psi at red line.
A set of headers installed on the Tacoma. Note: Images are for illustration purposes only. One of the best features of this header is that it's a long-tube header in a short-tube package. Just have a little lag on bottom end. This header bolts up to the factory mid-pipe, and is ceramic coated for long life and great looks.
If you are looking to match power output to a specific performance application such as towing or racing, then you should probably discuss this detail with the manufacturer prior to ordering. This will not be a tow rig, but it will occasionally tow a small trailer. It's a less aggressive setup that they Toyota uses. Never dynoed it, but similar setups online are around 220 at the wheels. Please contact Customer Service with any questions or concerns: 928-505-2501. I do know the Thorley header looks almost exactly like the stock one, so it keeps me wondering how much of a difference it can actually make.
Featuring stainless steel primaries, 16 gauge. How does dyno proven gains of 25+ hp and 38 lb. With the Tundra, Tacoma and Sequoia all equipped with class leading features, it's no wonder they are popular with enthusiasts. Dyno tests showed a substantial increase in power and torque over the leading aftermarket header. In some cases, you might need to make sure that the headers you are ordering are also compatible with the emissions equipment that came with the truck from the factory. Specifically excluded from this warranty are failures caused by lack of maintenance, misuse, negligence, modification, abuse, improper application, crash damage, installation or operation, or failures caused by unauthorized service or use of unauthorized parts.
With a powerful 245 hp 4. It may be worth researching, may not. The factory exhaust manifolds and exhaust systems are restrictive and inefficient designs that keep the engine from reaching it's potential. Trail-Gear warrants that it will repair or replace, free of charge, any eligible product which, under normal conditions of use and service, proves to be defective in materials or workmanship. It was going to be my wife's truck anyhow.
