URD Spec-U LT Headers Tacoma, 4Runner, FJ Cruiser 1GR-FE

(5 customer reviews)



URD is proud to announce our new Spec-U True Equal Length Long Tube Header for the 1GR-FE 4.0L V6 engine.

URD has been working on this new “better header” for a long time to get things just right.  We have tested different tube lengths in an effort to maximize the low end torque production without sacrificing the upper end power gains.  The equal length design also improves the sound or tone of the exhaust.

The header is designed to be compatible with the stock Y pipe, or any of the current aftermarket Y pipes.

The header is MADE IN USA and is constructed of 304 grade stainless steel mandrel bent tubing that is 1 5/8″ diameter with CNC milled mild steel flanges all hand TIG welded.  The headers are ceramic coated inside and out with a very high quality ceramic coating.

Due to the equal length design installation is slightly more involved than the other long tube header options.  Installation requires disconnecting the steering shaft to allow the new header to be fitted to the engine.  This is a simple process and is accomplished by removing the pinch bolt(s) in the shaft coupler and sliding it up enough to disengage it from the lower portion and then reattached once the header is bolted to the engine.

This is an off road/racing use only product.

Dyno Chart:

The development vehicle was a 2012 Tacoma XRunner complete stock except for the URD Spec-U headers and used a DynoJet 224xLC dyno.

Peak gain was 17 RWHP and 30 RWTQ

Max Gain was 22 RWHP at 3500 RPM and 34 RWTQ at 3430 RPM.

The most important thing to note is the Spec-U headers makes power throughout the ENTIRE RPM range. NO LOSS IN LOW END TORQUE.

5 reviews for URD Spec-U LT Headers for 1GR-FE, Tacoma, 4Runner, FJ Cruiser

    Fitment and tube routing is fantastic. All of the header nuts were easy to get a wrench on, collectors met the factory Y pipe with a very small amount of pushing to get seated. I did not have to lift the engine or remove any header studs, but I did drop the front driveshaft and separate the steering column.

    You have a great product, I’m very glad I waited for them to come back in stock instead of going with another brand.

    Thanks again,

    High quality product that includes well written detailed instructions with great technical installation tips. Pair these headers with an AFE intake and you no longer have a boring daily driver. Good modification if you are serious about getting more power from your Toyota. Can’t wait to add the Y pipe.

    I have not installed these yet, but initial impressions are excellent. The quality of the TIG welding, the fit and finish are excellent. The ports are clean and uniform. I’ll edit this once I get everything installed. So far very happy.

    Installed these on my ’07 4runner and couldn’t be happier. The quality of the construction is impeccable and the performance gains on the headers are immediately noticeable. Installation was not easy, even with access to a shop and a mechanic who is a close personal friend and helped me out, it took about 6 hours total — they take up a lot more room than stock headers which means sliding them into the same spot is a TIGHT fit, but the labor was for sure worth it. I also would like to commend the customer service of Gadget and his team — the headers were back-ordered and in production when I ordered them, all in all it took about a month to ship from the date that I ordered; but they stayed in contact the entire time, keeping me updated on where they were at in the process and how much longer it would take. Gadget himself was sending emails and calling me. These guys go above and beyond for their customers because they believe in what they’re selling — and it shows in the quality of their products.

    Hey guys, just got my truck back today. My mechanic installed the urd headers and exhaust. He was very impressed with the quality of the parts. I am very happy with the sound and performance gains. I have an 07 x-runner with a trd intake and the urd headers and exhaust.
