Just bought an 01!

Greetings. New to Tundras but not Toyotas. I've owned 30+ 80s/90s Pickups/4Runners and Corollas over the years. Great little cars.

I probably should have registered and asked these questions before purchasing... however... the price ended up being too good to pass up.

I picked up a 2001 Longbed 4x4 v8 SR5 with 202k miles for $3k. No leaks, squeaks or rattles but it does need some sprucing up.

It needs:

Windshield - Generic ordered - $150 - local shop
Timing belt - Aisin/Mitsuboshi kit ordered $180 - rock auto
HVAC knob - Toyota ordered - $10 ebay
Wheels - Picked up a set of used original alloys - $300 with some janky BFG tires (wheels that came on the truck are aftermarket and hideous) I'll get new BFGs come spring.
Intake - has a K&N on it but needs cleaned badly, ordered a K&N cleaning kit $12
Exhaust - LOOKING FOR OPINIONS - the exhaust on it is aftermarket, but a cheap one and has a hole in muffler. I'd really just like to replace the muffler unless you can all convince me a Borla is really worth the money. I don't think I'd see a HP increase since it would essentially be a like-for like changeout.

So aside from labor and elbow grease... I'll have about $3650 in it short of the exhaust.

Questions:

- Is a new exhaust worth it?

- Are headers worth it?

- Are there any other good modifications to get power out of this thing aside from intake/exhaust?

- Rear frame rust is minimal and appears to be only surface but I have not checked under spare tire. Iplan to once the snow melts. The truck is in CO but I don't think it always was... and the PO never took it in for the recall... is it too late to take it in?

If currents miffler is a flow thru design then you will gain no hp with another flow thru muffler. But, if current muffler has a hole in it, then a new muffler will gai. Some low end torque back.

All that said, if your tubing is very much bigger than stock, or any smaller than stock, you're losing power.

If I can help with anything please feel free to hit me back. I've been building tundra exhaust for the last 10+ years.

Thanks for the reply. When you refer to big tuning vs small tuning what do you mean? I have been unable to find tunes available for the ECM.

Miss my 01, so easy to work on. Enjoy your new truck! Also, the water pump is in with the timing belt, so I would recommend to replace that while you're in there.

Man. Just reread my spell check butchery. Everything else made sense so I left it. But tuning is supposed to say TUBING

@beef tits I just felt like typing beef tits...that's all

Allow me to introduce myself, my name is Chilly be
And I'm a surefire, full blooded bonafide house rockin' Jam-On Production MC
If you want the best, put me to the test, and I'm sure you'll soon agree
That I got no force 'cause I'm down by law when it comes to rockin' viciously, you see
'Cause when I was a little baby boy my mama gave me a brand new toy
Two turntables with a mic, and I learned to rock like Dolymite
Time went by, on this God creation, I knew someday I would rock the nation
So I made up my mind just what to do and I joined with the Jam On Production Crew
