Default Has anyone installed Doug Thorley headers on the 5.7L V8?

I've had headers installed on my '98 GS V8 and '08 GS V6 with great results. Just came across these Doug Thorley headers for the 570. Anyone put these on yet? Looks like DT headers have been around for a long time and these come with a lifetime warranty. Could be a good solution for some added power without having to go all the way to the TRD supercharger. Reasonably priced as well. The link below is for the Toyota Tundra 5.7L V8.

Interesting find! Im curious to know since the motor in the 570 and Tundra are the same, can we run an aftermarket Tundra intake on our rides?

I haven't my brother has a supercharged Tundra and added headers. All I can say it sounds mean but lots of drone in cabin. IDK how it would react with the cabin in our LX's probably louder. Personally I commute in mine and have just south of 27,000 miles on her after about 14 months so while I commute in it I wouldn't think about a supercharger or headers. i want it to be nice and quite. But once it hits 200,000 miles, I'm thinking about getting it rebuilt adding Supercherger and headers because after that she'll be retired and probably used for dirty Home Depot trips. So might as well have fun with it. Are you considering to add headers now?
