    Yea, eBay would be your best bet for a header. Look for one for a 94-99 5SFE usually sold by surewinproducts. It will bolt right up but will delete your stock catalytic converter. I bought one but haven't had the time to install it yet. A lot of guys on here got 'em. I'll get a link up later if you can't find one.

    Yea I could get the link for that too on eBay, bought one a bit back. I havent installed it though.

    TB spacer
    This is the TB spacer I got, there's probably cheaper ones out there though.

    Header
    The header's gone up in price lately but if you watch for a bit a good deal usually pops up. I got mine for $25+shipping.

    Yea, the engine didn't really change much between models. There were a few revisions through it's production life, but bolt-ons should be interchangable as long as its for a 5SFE. Don't quote me as the know-all on it, but that's what I've picked up while I've been here on the boards. I'm sure there's a thread somewhere that gets into more detail.

    you can also source an stock 97-99 camry header from a parts yard and use it. it's a real 4-1 header. it has shorter runners then the ebay headers but that's perfect for the 5sfe. it compliments the torquiness of the motor. it's what i run on my car. you can get one for like $40. the only problem is it is not a direct bolt on. a little modification of the exhaust pipe flange is necessary for the header to bolt up to the exhaust. so cost wise it may be cheaper to buy the ebay header.

    Just FYI, the surewinproducts 94-99 header doesn't just bolt right up to a 93. The mid-pipe flange has to be cut and jiggered with a bit.

    it's the same bs as the tornado. the only thing it is good for is a heat dampener. which is .00001 hp added. it would have to be at least 5ft long to actually spin the air. it's a scam.

    Actually it's not designed to spin the air like the 'tornado intake mod'. It's "supposed" to provide a little more space for the airflow to straighten, not become more turbulent. Whether it works or not is another story, but a spacer has been recommended to me a few times. I can't prove that it will work but I've rode in other vehicles before and after a TB spacer and I noticed a little difference (probably just throttle response if nothing else). It could have been my ass-dyno lying, but at that point does it really matter? I do appreciate the concern though.

    Anyhoo, just figured I'd reply since the question was directed at me.
