Headers Help!

New to modifying my 98 sr5 4wd. want to start by redbuilding exhaust. The guy who did some of my exhaust work says the best header deal he can do is a doug thorley header, $950 parts and labor. I was wondering what you guys thought about the price/labor, and if I'm getting ran over. Any other suggestions or name brands? Thanks

I have TRD headers on my 2000. They were on it when I bought it. From the dealer they are about $1500 alone. Installation can be a pain because of limited space. Look up doug thorleys on price and how long is he expecting installation to take?

I put the TRD headers on my Taco. If I remember correctly, I think Thorley made the headers for TRD. Also, it took me about 4 to 5 hours to put them on myself, but that was taking my time to make sure I did it right. I finagled the factory Y pipe out instead of cutting it apart, so that took me a little longer too. I had to take time to go get the new flange welded onto my cat that the collector bolts to. Just figure on a day if you do it yourself. It is not too bad with most of the right tools. I say that, becuase some of the exhaust nuts are in tight quarter and you won't be able to torque them unless you have a crow's foot, and even then I am not sure you will have access. I know on one or two I just tightened them down pretty tight by hand and guessed the torque.
