I've looking into the same thing myself, haven't decided whether or not to do it myself or not either, from what I understand tho, if you are some what mechanically inclined it should be easy to do yourself

Not sure where your warranty info came from because this is what it states on the TRD page:

"The warranty is the same as the Toyota Powertrain Warranty of up to y years or 60,000 miles or the remainder of the powertrain warranty at the time of the installation when installed by a Toyota dealer. Installations by anyone other than a Toyota dealer carry a 12 month/12,000 mile parts only warranty."

Oh okay, just by reading the OP (and the quoted section) it makes it sound like the warranty is the same no matter who does the install (you or dealership).
