    Default Manifold estimates

    Alright guys taxs returns are coming up and my truck has been "ticking" since the day I bough it. I cant take it anymore, I want to get it fixed. Its just my passenger side thats leaking. I took the heat shield off and ran seafoam to see if I could find a crack, but it looked to me like the gasket could be bad. Or maybe its warped and I dont have a good enough eye. Basically what I want to know is a ballpark price of what it should cost to get this fixed. I thought about headers but since he would be replacing both sides I figured the labor would be more.

    1. Stainless JBA Headers #2010S (For California Emissions Vehicles): $460, or, do what I did and get T304 Stainless Shorty Headers from this eBay seller (49 State Legal): $190

    2. Percy's Seal-4-Good Gasket Set #66080: $33

    3. Remflex Collector Flange Gasket Set #8015: $16

    4. Toyota Locking Header Nuts #90080-17187 (16 for the headers + 6 for the collector bolts @ $1.35 ea + shipping): ~$46

    5. I got these 40mm long black anodized, hex-socket head, M10 x 1.25 thread bolts (and washers) for the collector flanges from my local McFadden-Dale industrial hardware supply. They are thread-matched to the exhaust studs so I could use the same locking header nuts. They are also available from McMaster-Carr for $4.53 for a pack of 10 (you'll need 6):

    6. Labor: $Depends on who you have do it. I'd budget $400-$500 for labor.

    I'd also strongly recommend replacing the fuel-air sensors with new Denso units while you've got it all apart. Amazon is usually the cheapest.

    Pics of my final install attached below. I did slightly bend the shift cable bracket down so it allowed more gap between the rubber-coated cable and the heat from the header tubes.

    To find the leak: Use a short piece of garden hose as a stethescope. To get a price, check your local mechanics and find someone who has done the job. Perhaps you could post your findings...

    hmm, I'm going to have to further research these stage 8 bolts. Wonder if they make something for the 2003 highlander 4 cylinder, bc toyota's 3 bolts are prone to loosening and blowing the engine? It is the bolts at the headgasket that strip the threading on the head. Thanks Remmy

    I've looked at the stage 8 bolts for my Porsche CV joints - they're sweet. My Tundra has a similar leak. Please post some pics and your experiences doing the swap.

    I have done both of mine already and I can tell you from my personal experience that the manifolds crack so unfortunately I don't see it just being the gaskets. According to our labor guide at work it calls for 4-5 hours per side and that is if all the bolts come out easily, but with a little heat and some loving they should I didn't break a single one.

    I'm sure you've posted your on the headers, how are they holding up? I was thinking about getting these for my motor swap currently in progress...

    Doing fine! They have a nice thick flange that is ruler straight, aligned ports, excellent and consistent welds, and T304 steel. They bolted right up to the stock downpipe. Percy's header gaskets and Remflex collector gaskets are the trick.

    I also don't have the issue that some of the JBA shorty header owners are facing about the position of the fuel-air sensor bung. Mine are properly indexed to allow them to be backed out for replacement.

    Would you need to buy all those extra parts if you had bought the JBA option? From what I can read they claim it is the whole kit. Gaskets, bolts, etc. ?? Thanks!

    my past experience in building small block chevys the gasket kits that come with headers arent the best so i usually bought aftermarket ones that are thicker which tends to seal and lot better

    had those on my mustang for about a year. they never moved. however, they were a bit of a pita (not difficult, just took more patience that i usually had) when i was removing and installing the headers with head changes and such so i ended up dumping them and went with some ss arp bolts and nord-lock washers just for ease of removal and install.

    Worth it... Just put headers in mine at a local DIY shop. Took me 12 hrs but i got them in! They are a PITA but the ticking bothered me to no end.... FYI the seal flange on my pass. manifold 1st cylinder was completely gone, hence the MASSIVE ticking...

    Also I would get Percy's no leak manifold gaskets from summit, and some extra studs/bolts for re-install.

    If the existing studs are not badly corroded and you can chase the threads clean, then all you need is new locking header nuts from toyota. Going through the process of removing the studs just to replace them with bolts is pointless -- and will at least double the time it takes to complete this job.

    +2 on the Percy's though!!
