    well, im about to get my moms 2.7l 2002 tacoma and i have 700 to put into it. i went into a truck performance shop today and asked the clerk what i should do, he suggested headers and exhaust which (he said) would be about 700
    my question to you guys is: is 700 a good deal on some alright headers and exhaust? (im going to do the work myself so its all parts)
    or do you guys have anyother suggestions on how 700 dollars will make my truck run better?
    EI. im looking for it to get a bit more tourqe/hp and to sound beefy. thanks! :D
