thanks! when i first started and had the driver side manifold out in less than an hour i was pumped - thought to myself "if this is the hard side, the rest of this job will be a joke!"...

wasnt the case though lol those bolts are a lot harder to get it and lined up with those header tubes in the way.

Plus when we thought we had the job all done, i started the truck and it was awful, the header wasnt sealed to the cat pipe. So i had to undo those and back up the exhaust again to get that silicone sealant in. Not sure if that was in the instructions since i didnt even open them lol.

Butt dyno likes it very much, but it likes all the mods. Butt likes to keep wallet happy when it gets emptied, even if it has to lie lol hitting up the track next friday, well see then if it changed anything!

Good Job Brother!

I thought I mentioned the high temp sealant in my install post,
guess I missed that, but it certainly was in the JBA instructions.

From what I've researched lately, ARH long tubes are actually easier to install than shorties.

There's way more space to reach the header bolts because the tubes aren't as compact.

We'll find out next weekend we do my Bud's ARH LT install
(and our new transmissions)

Did you see Stainless Works now has LT Headers

And is it Brad who is installing LT? If so has anyone bought his JBAs?

Yes Brad has a freshly Ceramic Coated set of ARH LT's and a MBRP CatBack
he's been waiting to install when we do our trans swaps

...and yes he's already sold his JBA's

My shorties may go up for sale when I get my LT's
Still on the fence between ARH and going with OBX Jeep SRT8 headers like blue beast did. (for half the cost)

So someone actually manned up and attempted the OBX headers. That's awesome! Is there a link to that particular person's thread
