Default JBA Headers Install

So i should be getting my JBA Silver Ceramic Coated Headers early next week, picked them up from autoanything for $600 shipped and taxes in which is really good considering im in Canada.

Ive ordered the mopar gaskets as i heard the jba are felty crap ones and shouldnt be used. I also ordered an AEM wideband fuel/air guage and plan on welding that in place once the stock manifolds are removed.

I plan on doing the install next Saturday and im looking for time saving tips and pointers from experienced members on this forum. I know a few of you out there have done it before and i know of one that has done it a few times lol.

So is there anything i should look out for??

Where would be the best place to weld in the bung for the guage?

Found it:



http://www.ramforumz.com/showthread.php?t=106126&page=6

I welded my wideband bung just after the cat, drivers side down pipe

I know it "should" have been pre-cat ideally, but the first O2 sensor was already there.

...and my Cat's are finally getting Gutted this weekend (rear O2's have been tuned out)
(If I don't buy a set of CatLess ARH LT's from Matt at Moes' today....just $1430!)

If you want to Data Log your A/F to a Diablo Tuner,
You'll want one of these too:

Shop around though, the local speed shop only charged my $16
it's a pretty basic RCA jack you can make yourself

perfect! i was searching for that thread earlier (read it a while back) but couldnt find it. Ill hopefully be doing this with a buddy at the dealership he works at, might make things easier than in the driveway.

As soon as a tuner is available for the 13s ill be all over it!

I dont plan on touching the cats anytime soon so am i better off installing it before the cats??

Take off the front tires and fender liners it makes unbolting and bolting back up so much easier

The only reason for pre-cat is a more accurate reading for tuning purposes
...but it won't be a deal breaker to do after the cats if it's just for monitoring.

To get a good angle for installing a bung pre-cat you pretty much need to remove them from the truck.

I just did my wideband install last month and didn't feel like the extra work was worth the trouble.



I cant recall, do you have a Magnaflow Y pipe yet?









If you don't, you could hold off on your install until you get one,
then take the whole mid pipe section in to shop to weld in a new Y and your bung at the same time

That's how UNBROKEN did his

yeah, the Y-Pipe is one of the first things i did with the truck, along with a cut out 6" after it (just for fun).

I wonder since ill have the wheels, liner and manifolds out if I could access pre cat then.

It would be tight to get a drill in there, unless you have a 90º Air Drill
Lots of brake lines there to avoid too



and you would have to remove the first O2 sensor on the opposite side (or risk drilling into it)

That was my initial plan,
but wasn't sure how close the O2 and wideband sensor would be to each other.
