    update

    just wanted to let everyone know that yesterday afternoon myself and a couple of buddies successfully installed my pacesetter headers and y pipe, suprisingly enough, it took 10 hours two jacks, 4 jack stands, 2 10MM socket wrenches, a magnet and alot of patience....and now that its done, it sounds amazing! we started it up with just the headers and i couldnt believe how deep and throaty it was, i almost didnt put my y pipe on now its time for the dyno to see what she can put down, pics and soundclips coming soon.....

    Congrats man, I am sure you are very pleased. I remember doing my first header install, it was a very nice feeling afterwards. Then I remember all those cuts and nicks on my hands afterwards

    Good job! That great feeling from finishing the install will outweigh the soreness in your hands from getting them all banged up.

    Do you have a laptop/notebook computer? If so, get some tuning software and tune it yourself.

    Most people do not tune it after a header install. I am one of them. The car will just run a tad rich. I'm going to wait until I install my cam and heads and tune everything at once. You can get your own software with LC-1 Wideband and tune it in your driveway with a laptop. It'll be around 850.
