    heads and headers...

    okay so i'm removing the heads on my 2000 firehawk. realized that who ever installed the headers/ exhaust, welded the headers to the y pipe and cats. Anyone got an idea how i can drop the headers at least two inches to get to the bottom head bolts?

    I have the entire exhaust setup unbolted and just don't seem to have enough clearance.

    oh and i have kooks headers ....

    Honestly at that point I'd get a sawzall and make a cut just where the collector and the ORY connect an get some band clamps and return it to it's correct setup. It would truly make you life easier

    agreed, not many options being welded

    I guess the shop wanted to make sure the exhaust didn't leak. Not really bright imo.

    If you had a torch, I would have suggested melting the welds and use band clamps.
