    Go with the long tube headers.

    EDIT: I have the TRD header on my tacoma. I have heard the long tube doug thorley headers are good..
    If you can find a set of TRD headers for a good price I would get those instead.

    if you're gonna go that route, i would do long tubes. I bought short tubes and i regret not just waiting. less of a hassle than long tubes it seems. Oh and i vote doug thorleys too :D
