    Hey guys I'm seeking advice on what headers to buy for my 03' v-6. The 2 most popular seem to be the JBA and TRD's...what say you?

    Thanks

    I have a set of Thorleys on mine, awesome product. Installed them a year ago and they still look new. My cousin has a set of the TRDs on his 02 4Runner and it's awesome as well. I don't know about JBA but it seems you can't go wrong with any of the three.

    Are they easy to install or do they need to be taken to a shop? I was looking for a DIY writeup but didnt see one.

    Thanks for all the input guys, I found a good price on the TRD's so I think I'll go with them.
