Alright I am going to be ordering these tonight just wanted to know what you guys think(redoing my whole exhaust). Also had a couple of questions. I think i already post this before but i have the cash in my hand! Plus there on sale. saving myself 40 bucks :ninja:

Headers:

So my questions are:

1.) what do i need to know about installing headers? Spray it down with PB blaster? anything else?

2.) How much do you think a shop will charge to install everything back from the headers(cats/muffler/turn downs). Just want an idea before i start going to shops getting quotes.

3.)
Since the collector size is 2.50 and includes a Y pipe should i just get a single 2.50 in/out catalytic converter and run a single pipe into the muffler? or should i step it up to a 3.0 in/out cat?

or should i run it like the stock setup and run dual cats with no Y pipe?


I'm running no cats now. Really just want the most performance, make the bitch legal again, and a lot quieter - my ears are tired of ringing from long trips!

i would stay with the stock DI. pipe and cats. you may find going 3'' on a stock motor, your low end TQ will go away..
ALSO..use anti sezes compound on ALL bolts. your head bolts/heads will love you for it, if you ever decide to remove them in a few years

good luck

2.5" duals are too much flow.

I'd Y it down from the 2.5s into a single 3". Buy a high flow Magnaflow cat and a good muffler, I like the Hooker Aerochamber.
