    What's up. I'm on here trying to see if anyone know much about putting headers an the cat backs on the tundras. If I do end up getting headers will I have to get it tuned ?
    Thanks

    Welcome! There are some others considering on here and some that have them. I'm sure one of them will chime in.

    No tune needed on the Tundra. I may be putting on some JBA Longtube headers soon.

    I was told the factory exhaust manifolds were so good now that headers would have no impact. Any input on this?

    Super good read! Crazy how Toyota did a good job on the tundras. But yea it sounds like the stock headers or manifolds are pretty good! An aftermarket just helps an little but may not be worth spending money on.

    The only problem with that article is no documentation to back up the claims that the Tundra is that good and adding Headers only adds X amount of gain.

    Now go call Keith at dirtydeeds industries.

    http://dirtydeedsindustries.com
    (760)877-4234



    He has probably done the most dyno testing with the Tundra motors than anyone else. By adding JBA headers, x pipe and his race true duals he was able to gain 49hp/89 TQ on his SC tundra. When he added the Bully Dog programmer it was another 90hp.

    Now I wouldn't do the race exhaust, and I would can the cats, install the resonators and the largest mufflers he makes due to towing.

    Here are some links, remember the Tundra puts to the ground 305-315 hp from what I have seen.

    That was not directed personally at you @Tracker , more so the article. I knew it was coming out of the woodwork when this thread was started.
