I was just going to order my exhaust tomorrow from LC Engineering, when I found you guys. Funny I've been looking for all things toyota for over 2 1/2 yrs and haven't heard of TTORA.
Anywho I own a 97 ext cab 3rz with ome 881 front with toy tec 2.5 spacer, and diff drop. AAL and NWOR 2" shackles and bilstein 5100 in back.
It's time for a new muffler, so I convinced the wife that I should replace the whole exhaust and add a set of headers to boot. So before I drop $800 to a company I haven't delt with before I want to know what everyone thinks or has experienced.

I just ordered their header kit for my Tacoma (97 w/ 2.7). They are very helpful. Once I get the header kit, I'll buy the high flow cat. and the Magnaflow cat. back system from them. I'll let you know how it goes.

Thnx. I'm planning on the header, cat and pre-runner style exhaust myself. I'm curious to know how yours goes. Keep me posted.

I installed a LCE header a month ago or so. The install took only about an hour, the fit was perfect. Do your self a favor and save some money. The stock cat is fine, the same cat is used for the V6, it will flow more than enough. It may in fact trip your check engine light if you swap it out for a different type. If you by your self a intermidiate pipe (pipe between cat and muffler)from NAPA for an 97 ext cab with a V6 it will be 2 1/4" pipe, buy yourself a muffler of your choice and have a muffler shop make a tail pipe up for it. The pipe at NAPA should cost you less than $40, a muffler shop should charge you about $50 to make a tail pipe for you... My .02 any way..... :welder:

I've ordered the following:

Magna Flow cat back system - Pre-runner style
3RZ-FE Header kit w/ studs
Hi-flow cat.

I received the header and wasn't impressed with the construction of the mounting flange. It looked like they let a monkey grind it down. And this is the side that mates with the head. They are sending me a new one.

I also ran into problems with the Magnaflow cat. back system. At first they told me it was in stock...then I got a call telling me it was 3-4 weeks back ordered (that's why I went with the Pre-runner style, I'm in the middle of an unscheduled motor build).

All in all they have been pleasant to deal with, just some minor bumps along the way.
