Default So if I wind up with the new headers

We should have a tech day. I am sure there are several do-it-yourself people out there that are looking at getting headers and it would be a good experience for them to see what to and what not to do to install them.

Joe,

I'd be down for that. When I do mine, it should go much smoother after seeing/doing a set before.


Now, if I can get the CLB installed this week, maybe I can drive mine this coming weekend.

If you tore your seat changing your MAF and broke your windshield changing your blades, I hate to see what happens when you change your headers.

Let us know when and where, I will try to show up, with a camera.

I've done a few sets of headers... I'm game for helping. If they're as accurate a copy of ARH headers as they look in pics then they'll install easily.

If we can get a few experienced people to help so I don't destroy the headers, the vert, or kill myself, and a place to do it, maybe someplace with a grill, I will be more then happy to supply food and drinkage to make it a mod party.


Jeff, you can even bring your camera...lol

I used to have mod parties at my house a few times a year... if the barn's not open for business we can do it at my place. I've got a grill and all the tools you'd need.

If you've never had your plug wires off try and buy a set of stockers cheap off the forum just in case any break on removal.

Get OEM F-body exhaust manifold gaskets... they have round ports that bette rmatch the header flanges and no funky AIR pump stuff that's needed w/ the OEM manifold.
