HI, Was wondering if the American Racing Headers bolt right up to an after cat Magnaflow system?
Also, Are u going to use locking Header Bolt like Stage 8?
Curious is you will get any Fault Codes from the O2 sensors being moved?
Look forward to your feedback. Thinking about the same upgrade.

It will bolt up to a catback but it may require some cutting of the pipe to allow the y pipe and pipe to connect together. I didnt use the stage 8 bolts but if you order the kit i believe they come with it. I just used header bolts and they have been working leak free so far. I havent had a code come up yet and i extended my 02 wires by adding wire to the factory O2's. I really like the make of the headers and how the truck feels with them added. I still think there over priced but i rather pay for proven performance anytime.

Are you feeling a seat of the pants increase in HP or Torque?
How does it feel in regards to other mods you have made?
Any tips on the install?
Thanks and enjoy the ride~~

Yes you can feel the increase. The convert is one of the best mods i have ever done. I feel that the ported throttle body plus the vararam and the headers all work well together to offer the best performance so far. I am so to be getting a custom tune from hemifever to allow all the mods to work together better. For the install remove the wheels and wheel wells and the install isnt so bad. The exhaust guy at my job had to do mine since i was so busy. He did it from the buttom on a rack in less then 4hrs.

Thanks for the feedback! Not sure what I should do first!!
So you feel the converter was the best single mod so far? Would that be your first choice in performance increase?
Do you think any of these mods affect vehical warranty?

Yes the converter was the only mod that i noticed a large difference. An yes it would be the first mod due to the fact it almost by passes torque management. An yes a aftermarket tq will void your trans warrenty and so will the headers affect the exhaust warrenty. Some dealers are different but mine told me up front it would void it.
