This setup is not for use in California, or other smog controlled states.
All modifications listed here are intended for off-road, and racing use only.
Escondidotundra (Keith, owner of BAmuffler/Dirty Deeds industries) will be the guy doing the work here.. I will be lending a hand whenever possible, but due to my work schedule,
I will be dropping my truck off with him, and picking it up when its done, unless my work schedule clears a bit, to where I can help..
So here we go, the trek of removing the restrictive, leaky stock exhaust, and install a high-flow, power building setup!
We start with my 2000 4.7 4x4, relatively stock truck. Stock gears, stock tires (LT265/75/16 definity dakota A/T2 all terrains) The only modifications in relation to power building on the truck are:
The idea of this got started once I bought the truck, and immediately noticed the leaking stock exhaust manifolds:
Also, major restriction points like this:
The goal here, is to create the most useable power for this truck. By completely removing the stock exhaust, and re-engineering everything.
The headers I bought were Pacesetter Longtube Headers Pacesetter Performance Headers for Toyota - Pacesetter LONG TUBE Headers 2000-2005 Toyota Tundra / Sequoia 4.7 V8
They were also treated to protect them from rust, and the sort.. These headers look great! Welds look solid, and the entire header feels VERY well built.
Along with the new exhaust, I'll be removing the stock, motor driven fan, for a new, custom-made electric setup, made by Escondidotundra himself.
I will be running the truck on a dyno before, and after the modifications.
The goal is a solid 30hp/30ftlbs at the wheels increase.
I feel confident that we'll be able to hit those numbers.
All of this will be done sometime in the next few weeks, once the holiday-hustle dies down, so I wont need my truck on a daily-basis (I'll just use the wifey's car, and my work van)
All-in-all, I'm excited for this project!
I drove Keith's truck, which has 285's, and stock gears, with a similar setup, and all I've got to say is: "WOW!"
The sound of this setup is ROCKIN! ZERO (and I mean ZERO) drone! His muffler alone will fix that problem..
Also, the power increase.. HOLY COW! His truck runs circles on mine! With the larger tires, and stock gears!
Stay tuned, fellow Tundra-enthusiasts! We'll have pictures, and videos of this
