LT's Ory Question
Good evening everyone. I have a couple of questions. I decided to install my new Hooker Super Comp LT's and ORY tonight By my darn self ( Big Mistake )
First question it took me about 3 1/2~4 hours to remove factory exhaust and manifold on the passanger side. Is that about right? From a couple of people I have spoken with this is the hardest side to do do ya'll agree? Or is the driver side easier?
Also there are ( 4 ) o2's I know that I will only re-install ( 2 ) which ( 2 ) and which o2 wiring harness's do I re-hook up. And by the way all of the bleeding nuckels and cursing were worth it after i put the new ceramic headers in the engine bay and looked at them. They look sweeeeet.
Thanks for all of the help Everyone!!!!

First time it may take awhile. It gets easier to do once you it a few times but Im guessing this will be the only time you do it unless you have some buddies who wish to do this also we had 5-6 f-bods in out crew so it got easier and faster. You need to replace the front 02's drover and passenger those have to stay hooked up to the car. The rears need to be either turned off or you need to purchase sims to plug in the rear harness.

MYSCZ06, Thanks for the reply, I just thought that it was taking a while to complete I dare one of my buds to ask me for help since they were so willing to help me if you know what I mean.

Everything on the passenger side is a PITA lol. Since it was your first time and you were alone i would say you did just fine. Removing the old parts is always the hardest due to Rust, and years of heating and cooling. Makes everything stubborn and likely to break.
LIke said above, all you will hook up is the front 02 sensors. One on the driverside and one on the passenger side. You will need extensions or vette sensors for them to reach. For the rears you can either pick up sims which are hard to come by now a days, or just get them tunned out.
Congrats on the job and once you start driving it you will appreciate them even more..

I couldn't imagine doing this myself Isn't it like super hard to connect it to the stock exhaust? Great job doing it yourself. Notice a big pickup in power?
