    Does any one have a suggestion as to the best and easiest to install Headers & Exhaust system for 2001 Tacoma, [FONT=&quot]3.4 L, Extended Cab[/FONT], 4x4? Engine is Supercharged, computer/fuel delivery modified, and cold air intake added. Runs quite well at 5,000 -8,000 ft elevation.

    TRD looks good but the price is out-of-sight.

    At 5000 to 8000 feet, I doubt that he does. Most of the lean out problems happen below 1500 feet. :)

    Thanks people. To answer some of your statement, I am using 91-octane fuel. After supercharger installation at 33,000 miles, the gas mileage increased from 20 MPG tom 22 MPG. The engine ran very strong. After adding a total of 120,000 miles, the engine got sick and started to ping very badly. The MPG went down to 17–20 MPG. I suspect it is the injectors wearing out.
    To remedy the original high-speed lean problem and the new bad conditions and to get the engine to run strong again, I purchased URD 3.4L 5VZ-FE Toyota Truck Supercharger Fuel Upgrade Kit. I am in the process of understanding how to tune this unit. It has increased my MPG and power. I drove 200 miles very fast and aggressively while receiving 20 MPG... that works for me.
    To get the best performance from the upgrades, I am exploring adding headers and exhaust system, once done with the engine tuning.

    Since you are FI, go with the most free flowing muffler you are comfortable with, and use 3" exhaust. :)
