Cracked manifold. Replace with headers?
Hey guys -
After 6 months of trying to get Toyota to figure out my strange engine noise, I finally took it to a reputable local shop and they found the issue within 10 minutes. A crack in the manifold on the driver side. Why Toyota couldn't find this after multiple visits to the service department is a joke, but not unexpected. They also claimed it was a normal noise that all Tundras make.
Anyway, the cost of a replacement OEM manifold is about $450. The labor is about $500. Would it make more sense to do something like the Thorley headers instead of spending all that money on the OEM manifold? Would it require additional time to do headers instead of manifold replacement?
