hi, i would go with a company that stands behind there product with a good warrenty.
if you go cheaper, & they crack, weak weld's, sloppy workmenship, etc.
it might be a waste of time. they might end up leaking.
than all those hours, & your out of pocket oem gaskets will have to be bought again.
plus the job has to be done all over again. it's alot of work.

many of us went with jba or dt for a reason.

but some also went with ss autochrome, & the knock off's, gibsons.
because they were alot cheaper.
no dyno's on those.
we don't really know how long they will last.

jba & dt give you peace of mind.
knowing if anything goes wrong, i will get a free set is nice to know.

although anyone will have to pay for installation or re-do the job themselves again & new oem gaskets, the price of the headers will be free.
now jba's & dt prices have gone up.
so what i'd be saving on the cost of the headers would pay for the install.

if you can afford to buy jba's or dt. buy them since there is data on them.
and many members have had success with them.
and proven increase's on the dyno.
not just there dyno results that the company post's.
where are the proof from all the other's that they to can match the increases,
& also the lifespan?
something to seriously think about.
your choise,
gorilla

I'm in agreement with Gorilla on this. I installed my JBA's this weekend and HOLY CR4P, I can't believe the difference. The reason I bought JBA was because they're reputable, with those ebay auctions who knows what you're going to end up with. If something goes wrong with my JBA's I have an established company which I can go back to and not some fly by night operation.

Good luck with your purchase

you nailed it gorilla thanks! but if any tundra owners out there that gone with the knock off route, do you have any remorse about it? i know you get what you pay for. i wish our trucks was like the bumble bee civic where there is a crap load of aftermarket support or like the gm camp where you can find endless support of mod other members have tried, and whats great and whats not, what to buy and not to buy, ect... but I do love my Tundra and you guys are very helpful! i don't post much but always been lurking and reading around!


thanks

I've had the Boost Bros. headers from ebay for about a year. No problems. When it comes down to it, they're all just stainless tubes welded to a flange.

hi, think about what type of stainless steel they used.
there are many grades.
how thick are they. are the weld's done right.
there are many questions, i rather not want to ask.

so i went with the repuation of JBA. it's been a few years now. & they are still perfect.

there are cheaper 1's out there.
but like many said. once you do the job or pay someone to do it,
either way, you never ever want to do it again.
eventually we all will have issue's.
heck i heard of oems cracking.
but many of those people do alot of off roading.
that might have something to do with it.

i have yet to see any data on any other headers except for JBA & DT!
to me that answers all question's.

For the 4.7L 2UZFE JBA headers, do you recommend the ceramic standard, or the ceramic titanium model? Thanks

The choice between color is just color, that is up to you. I went with regular stainless but you may want a coating since it rains more where you are. They might hold up a little bit better.
