Just as I feared..cracked manifold..
 
Well I think I found my odd noise (sounded like an exhaust leak all along) Pulled my heat shield off manifold is cracked just about all the way around :(

A-Weld it
B-Replace it with later model toyota header
C-F it!!!
D-Replace with aftermarket header

Advise, best place to buy?...

NO CEL which me and the toyota/lexus schooled guy at hobby shop thought was odd...

Pix to come shortly.

Im leaning toward toyota header from later model tacoma

i went aftermarket for two reasons.
cheaper than buying a new one from toyota
more space

I'd go for a LC engineering Header:D. I love mine. Stay away from Pacesetter headers, heard nothing but bad from them hunks of crap:pokin:. Doug Thorley makes a header to but I've never seen or used one:notsure:. Just my $.2:)

What'd that LC header run you? Is it cermaic coated? thanks

My wife's 96 had this and we went stock..her choice. I'd think about header but no suggestion from me.

No CEL doesn't shock me, my wife's didn't trip the light either.

I vote C.

oldblue1968chevy 04-08-2013 07:09 PM

tacotacoma-whew thats nice but I cant justify spending the monies for it.

I think im going to go with a 01+ 'header'. Going to order something tomorow

Either order from a dealer in Dallas, a toyota shop over in seattle wa area, or the local dealer.

Whatevers the cheapest quickest :) Will just use some felpro gaskets.

Im catching lots of flack from my chevy buddy and my used to be toyota jumped ship to nissan buddy lol

This is what I did to my 96 2.7 when my manifold cracked. Ordered it from Toyota of Dallas.com I think, anyway this part bolted right up and have had no problems. Nice thick flange.

And about Welding the stock cast manifold. I wouldn't even try. It's a very porous alloy of iron and some other shit, doesn't weld very well...and it will just end up cracking again soon enough
