    These things are great. My setup is with TRD exhaust and I am getting a little bit of rasp at the higher RPMs. I wouldn't call it ricer rasp though, it deeper (I kinda like it). I don't know if when it breaks in that the rasp will go away or will become more noticeable. There is definitely a power increase in mostly the mid range RPMs just like the dyno chart says. I'm happy :D. You will be too.

    Congrats man! they look awsome!

    I love my TRD Headers I just put on too. :) I also have a slight rasp but hope it will go away when they break in. I actually just fixed a leak I found. Hope I dont have leaks down the road.

    well, usually you can hear it, but feel around all your flanges for blowing air. If none, your good!

    Sweet! Looks good man.

    I think I saw in TWLive, did you have a shop install them? I think I saw your truck on a lift, and not many people have a lift at their house. lol :D

    I had that for awhile. I need to get it retuned for the headers so that it won't run rich at low RPMs and lean at high RPMs but thats it.

    Wow, when did TRD start making headers for our trucks? I have never heard of them until now.
