Are Headers a good bang for your buck?

I'm looking into getting a good pair of headers for my truck (08' tacoma V6 extcab), but want to get some that dont leak and dont empty the bank. I already have a magnaflow cat system installed and does it makes a noticeable amount of gain over stock? Short tube or long tube?

To be honest if you're not forced induction the headers won't do all that much, certainly not enough to be considered a good bang for the buck.

Headers are good. I have the TRD headers for the V6... I think TRD stopped making headers...


I had a buddy who just gave me his TRD headers the headers were about a year old... My other buddy and I started ripping everything apart on the tacoma, soon realizing that these headers did not fit correctly. Oh no!!!
I end up buying the right TRD headers for my tacoma off ebay. Thought I got a good deal, instead I had to pay a lot more than I wanted to. LOL
