Toyomoto (will fit with the SC)
Xerd (will NOT fit)
Pro1 (????)
JIC (only for the IS200 ?)

any other ones out there?

It looks like I need to go with Toyomoto, but I just want to make sure that there aren't any other choices out there.


Key thing to remember - it must clear the SC.

Pro 1 is the Toyomoto and HP Racing Header
why the different names?
I'd like to know as well, but the Toyomoto Header I had gotten had HP Racing on it and I have heard through some other threads that the Pro 1's are the same as HP.

get it from Toyomoto. I got mine there when I had the s/c and it was great. Comes w/ the racepipe and the simulator and all. $400 and it looks good in the car. Plus who would you rather support, Toyo or Pro-1?

The header that comes from TOYOMOTO is designed by Lance and was sourced to HP to make them......I'm guessing Pro1 just re-badges the HP as well.......In all honesty I would buy the TOYOMOTO above the other two just for the simple reason TOYOMOTO is a company that cares about the IS....The others just want your money.....Just my Opinion though...

this is mostly right--i called lance yesterday to get the full story...

he used to drive a heavily sponsered HP car a while back. he went to HP with the idea to make a header/y-pipe combo to sale through his store (toyomoto.com). HP green lighted the project and he designed the header, the mid-pipe, and set up 02 sims to work in our car specifically w/o triggering the cel. he began selling the the thing for 400/450 (ss/chrome).

well. HP outsourced the actual fabrication to an overseas manufacturer with shady ethics. they jacked his design, rebadged it, and made it available through a company named PRO-1. it is minus the sim because this company is only a metal worker, doesn't know how to set up the sims, and of course lance won't let them take his. so HP is the same as toyomoto all things considered, and PRO-1 is cut from the same molds but no sims. and to support PRO-1 is to take food off of lance's table... besides by the time you get other sims working right, you'll save little if any money.

stick with toyo...

JIC brought out during SEMA headers for the IS300.

That JIC header post a little while ago, was a Turbo manifold and not a header at all.

i didnt know all that. thats very interesting. if I had known I would not have bought a Pro-1 cuz I like Lance and I think he works very hard and is very good at what he does. SORRY LANCE!!

sounds great nonetheless though, thanks to Lance's design......

HP Header

besides by the time you get other sims working right, you'll save little if any money.
I'm a dealer for HP and their new Lexus header comes with the O2 Sim also and it is a simple four wire hookup. I didn't know that the source came from Toyomoto but I did know HP was making them for other companies. HP has dramatically dropped their prices on the header for the new year so I guess it will help with other prices as well. Competion is the name of the game after all.

Toyo

Probably so. HP just has deeper pockets for production. I guess this is why Toyo took the design to them. He should have patented it. HP just dropped the price on theirs to a little over $300 so I guess the others will have to follow. But like I said, competion is the name of the game.
