New Headers

My new headers are in the mail. I haven't been under the car in a while. I'm not shure if the stock manifolds will pull through the bottom. If anyone know's what i'm looking at please let me know. I'm not shure if i'll have to pull the engine or now. If thats the case I should just get the PI heads!

Are they the Kooks Long tubes, or the jba, ssautochrome shorties. From what I've heard you have to pull the engine to intsall the Kooks, but not the shorties. So also you manifolds should pull through the bottom.

Just a note - I would do a search on how to install headers

I personally haven't done it BUT from my past reading - it is a pain in the ars


Hope this helps

I don't see why it would be a pain. I understand that if somthing gets swisted or cockeyed you could produce a leak. As long as you tighten everything down lightely and equaly then torque it I should be just fine.

Oh, so your saying I might have to disconnect the steering column or move things outta the way. That doesn't seem too bad. Yeah it might take a little longer. But at least I don't have to worry about backlash and pinion depth. LOL gosh.

Yeah that does seem like a long time to lay some pipe. I'll talk to the guy putting my exhaust together. I believe he said $240 thats porting the pipes for the O2 sensors installing high-flow cats true duel eliminate res, and third cat and, install the flow series 40's 2.25 pipe all the way. Maybe they cand put the headers on while they're down there. I'm shure he'll say an additional $30 but that would still be a pissed off deal. That way it'll all be done at the same time.

But on the other hand. I do enjoy being a grease monkey. Even if it would take 6 hours. It would be worth it just to be able to say I did it myself. That reminds me of the time I had to drop the fuel tank. Those nylon gas lines. The quick disconnect ones that hook up to the fuel pump. I hear its a common problem. They rub through after time. Yeah that was fun. It took forever because i had to move some stuff; exhaust, a cross member and the tank. Then I had to diagnose where exactly the leak was comming from. I found it and took the hoses off. When i arrived at "Ricerzone" The girl working that night gave me a set of spark plug wires. I was like "no, not those, These. They're fuel lines." she said they didn't have em' so i bought some high pressure rubber hose slid it over the broken hose and hose clamped it. I went back to Autozone the next day to see if they acctually had the right hose. The guy laughed at me and said yeah that girl souldn't even be working her. He showed me the hose and said it was $20 a piece. since I needed 3 of em'. I Shure saved some cash. It took me about $7 or $8 to fix. If i fixed it with origional I would've costed $60. Hmm, go figure.

So, I guess the moral of this story is. Do the work on your day off and save a load of ca$h!
