    Well I think I found my odd noise (sounded like an exhaust leak all along) Pulled my heat shield off manifold is cracked just about all the way around :(

    A-Weld it
    B-Replace it with later model toyota header
    C-F it!!!
    D-Replace with aftermarket header

    Advise, best place to buy?...

    NO CEL which me and the toyota/lexus schooled guy at hobby shop thought was odd...

    Pix to come shortly.

    Im leaning toward toyota header from later model tacoma

    I'd go for a LC engineering Header:D. I love mine. Stay away from Pacesetter headers, heard nothing but bad from them hunks of crap:poking:. Doug Thorley makes a header to but I've never seen or used one:notsure:. Just my $.2:)

    My wife's 96 had this and we went stock..her choice. I'd think about header but no suggestion from me.

    No CEL doesn't shock me, my wife's didn't trip the light either.

    tacotacoma-whew thats nice but I cant justify spending the monies for it.

    I think im going to go with a 01+ 'header'. Going to order something tomorow

    Either order from a dealer in Dallas, a toyota shop over in seattle wa area, or the local dealer.

    Whatevers the cheapest quickest :) Will just use some felpro gaskets.

    Im catching lots of flack from my chevy buddy and my used to be toyota jumped ship to nissan buddy lol

    This is what I did to my 96 2.7 when my manifold cracked. Ordered it from Toyota of Dallas.com I think, anyway this part bolted right up and have had no problems. Nice thick flange.

    And about Welding the stock cast manifold. I wouldn't even try. It's a very porous alloy of iron and some other shit, doesn't weld very well...and it will just end up cracking again soon enough
