tC headers will not fit... the pipe at the bottom does not match but u can custom fab the piping but u will not be able to go back to your stock header. The solara ones work though. There was one made by JP Performance or something before. It's about 500 bucks. And u need some kinda ECU thing to change the A/F timing otherwise u don't get much outta it. I gave up on it, costs too much for a bit of performance. Disappointing...

tC headers only costs 200-300ish. And there's a bunch of dynos out for them at scionlife.com. But even if u put it on your car don't expect the same results because the piping is all different along w/ different ECU and timings.

Only thing that works from the tC is the pulleys.

I think i've put enough performance mods on this car. Disappointing car to mod for performance (and it's an automatic :disappoin ). Saving up for my next car now, gonna be along the lines of IS350/G35.

it removes some weight from the stock crank pulleys so the power goes to the wheels. There's some debate from some people that it can harm the engine though but i haven't seen any one with problems as a result of the pulleys. I'm always watching that other forum to see if anyone gets a blown engine as a result lol. So far, pretty good results...

you can find lots of stuff here

LMAO Dude... It's a 4piston, 3200lbs+ car. What did you expect? LoL! Ofcorse its dissipointing & slow LoL!

The pulleies should not harm the engine unless they physically do not fit. All semi-modern Toyota enginers are internally balanced. The crankshaft pulley is nothing more than a rubber isolated harmonic dampener. It has no bearing on engine balance.

That's where I found the negative crap about the pulleys even if engines are internally balanced. I know some ppl that has it for several yrs w/o problems, so i just took the risk and got a set.

yeah OBX now makes headers for the 2AZ
I was thinking about these or modifying the tC headers for my gen 5, but if you go with the OBX system it looks like you're doing away with both cats instead of just the upper...right?

I think this is an all time record for dead thread resurrection. 9.17 years !! I haven't even seen the previous participants in years.

I knew it was a long shot, but I thought I'd give it a try.
