$500 to install jba headers 3.4L 2002

Hey Guys,

Yesterday I received the JBA headers I ordered from URD and the MAF calibrator. Today I had the headers installed and cost me over $500 to have them put in. They had to lift the engine a little, cut and weld some pieces. I'm hoping it will be worth the $500 for the headers $95 for brokerage and the $500 to install!! I never thought it would add up to that much, and I've only just begun. Rims and supercharger are next on the list

I actually haven't even got my truck back yet I will pick it up tomorow and let you guys know how it sounds/preforms and get some pics up. I will shortly be getting a cat back exhaust. I will try to get some sound bites on if I can figure out how to get sound on the internet.

Easy

Hey man thanks I will get some new photos up shortly. The guys I went to are pretty damn good but these headers were poorly designed bad R and D as they said? There were cuts needed and welding. Lifted the engine. The bolts wouldn't even flush against the flanges because of the welding. They did alot of work. Me and none of my friends could have done it in that amount of time. I'm really happy with the results great sound and definatly an increase in torque. I will have to see how the URD MAF calibrator helps with the mods Your Truck is also fuckin badass.

hmmm I had trd headers on my 97 tacoma V6 and they bolted right up...hardest part was fishing them down into the engine bay LOL one had to go up from bottom other had to come in from top ... maybe they moved a few things on the 02's...also I added full trd exhaust at same time so ALL the old stuff was already removed
