    You just have to go into your album on photobucket and copy the image (not the share URL) code. Once you do that just paste it to your post. You don't have to click on the insert image box because its already has the [img] tag around it. If that makes any sense.

    That looks like you did a pretty clean install. Have you already tuned out the rear O2's

    No we havent tuned it out yet I have valve train problems see the car was miss shifted and bent 7 of 16 rods that I already replaced but we think one or more valves may be bent its throwing a random miss fire code and motor is rocking some and not idling properly. Also yes we checked all the simple things brand new plugs, and wires, coils are ok and injectors are good. So on that note we havent even really hooked up the o2s or had a tune so all new cam and supporting mods for the cam are next while the heads have to come off. Also yea that makes sense and thanks for ur help.

    Misfire code could be a bad plug, a cracked plug(that's what I would look for after a header install), wires not on the coil or plug all the way, wires going bad or burnt. Run the motor at night in the dark and look for any stray spark. My car was throwing a misfire code and shook at idle when I finished my header install. I thought it was a cracked plug, but as I was checking them, I found I forgot to put the #8 wire back on! I left it off to make it easier to tighten the back header bolt and forgot to put it back on.

    Yea I put new plugs on checked all gaps before puttin em back on. Also put on new taylor made 10.4 mm wires. All wires were plugged and locked in, all coil packs were ok, and if a plug was bad that would be cylinder specific and we shouldve been able to pick up that particular cylinder that was miss firing from a bad plug. However this is random, jumping all over the place, I know not having the front o2s hooked up will throw the car in a loop and cause the miss fire and i got extensions on the way so i dont have to cut the wires and ill check that. I still have a feeling that a valve/valves may have been floated and are now bent as i did bend 7 of 16 rods and thats when this whole mess started.

    Man im sorry but ur gonna have to tell me TD's??? Also it depends on what LTs u get. Stainless ur gonna see a little more improvement on for hp but not an insane amount. Also do you have cat back or what type of exhaust system do u have. At most with my set up LTs, ORY, and corsa catback with tune im lookin at 25-30 hp gain and even then i might be off a little. Im assuming ur talking true duals correct?

    Then ur still looking around the quoted hp gains i said before unless ur still on stock exhaust? Also pacesetter are some of the best fitting headers ive ever installed they slipped right in after taking the manifolds off in minutes.
