- few O2 sensor connectors a pain to get to
- Y pipe didnt want to come out, had to cut off from where it crosses over then beat the sh!t out of the pipe to pop out.
- driver side bottom MIDDLE manifold bolt hard to get to, shock bracket right under it perfectly in the way.

Hope installation goes smoother ha.

Did you feel a big power difference? Been having my headers sitting in my living room for a week now. Been working 7 days a week so no time to install them.

There's a noticeable difference. Has way better highway pull now too. Here if a few weeks im going to switch over to hemifever tuner and that should help too.
Headers definitely made the noise level more, even engine noise. Kinda weird sounding flappy ish.
