    New Headers

    Just installed some pacesetter Lt's and y.IMAG0287.jpg1345996100665.jpg Install was not as difficult as I thought it would be. Also ripped out air/egr and did plugs. Love the difference it made!

    Yea I had mine for about 3 months before I decided to do it. Give yourself a full day and try to get it up as high as u can at least 18-20". I had to hammer on the firewall a little and shave the k member on the driver side. Other then that they went right in.

    Nice. Did it in the driveway I see. Any problems with clearance getting them in that way?

    I had the luxury of a lift at work, 6 years ago, and I still ''Love my Hookers!" Pacesetters are a good investment also, any long tube header really wakes up almost any engine. Enjoy the better highyway gas mileage, I gained about 1.5 MPG.

    No issues on clearance with new ones I had that thing jacked up pretty far, sending in for a frost tune this week.

    Nice work and great idea sending the PCM to Frost -- that is certainly the way to go after mods like these.

    I have the bbk headers. No need to worry about cutting k-members, disconnecting steering knuckles or anything else. If you haven't done so, delete the EGR and AIR systems and you'll have plenty of room to work on the. I believe the drivers side came in from the bottom and the passenger from the top. I have a slight body slap when changing from first to second. The ORY smacks a little, but that can all be adjusted with fine tuning and taking your time.

    I have had SLP headers since the car was new, they are installed by the dealer before purchase. After 12 years they are still working great. No problems. I have them hooked up to a 3" Y pipe and two high flow cats and a CME system all stainless steel. 12 years and no problems.

    If your doing headers I would recommend either installing new motor mounts or polys. Pretty easy to do and plenty of room once the headers are out of the way. Will help keep the exhaust from hitting under the car.
