Header & Muffler upgrade

I am running an 89 4Runner 3.0, SR5 with no cat.

Any suggestions on what will give me the best bang for my buck.

There are few companies that make headers for the 3vze. Doug Thorley and NWOR come to mind. All are very expensive. I've said this before and I'll say it again...there is definitely a demand out there so I don't know why more companies don't make them. People just aren't buying them because they're so expensive (Thorley's are upwards of $600). If more companies make them, prices will go down due to competition.

I'd say get a nice turbo muffler and leave everything else alone. If you have the skills or are willing to pay an exhaust shop, you could do the crossover elimination mod, which there are multiple threads about on here.

EDIT: MAK92-4RNR on here had the best sounding 3vze. His exhaust setup is in the description of the vid

no way jose how do i twitter? what's a linkedin? atari pong toyota
Just pick out something that you think sounds nice. Nothing, including headers, will give you more than 5 or so horsepower/tq. I agree a simple turbo muffler is all you'll need.

I have a Magnaflow muffler on mine (offset oval type), I've been pleased with it so far. It's not very loud which is what I wanted and I've noticed a significant increase in HP and MPG's. You'll find that other people have recommended it as well (you can search the forums for "mufflers"). I have stock headers on so can't comment there.
