Default Re: DIY: Aftermarket header and section 1 install

In the middle of doing this right now, ended up using a few studs and nuts, but mainly just gaskets and such ... using euro headers so didnít need the longer studs, which I can imagine being a PITA

Do yourself a favor and be sure to use anti-seize on both side of the studs when you reinstall them.

Careful with the EGR hose, mine was brittle and snapped when I was reinstalling everything. Overall this has definitely been time consuming and somewhat annoying, but worth it considering the shops I called wanted $1000+

Lol. But IF you have to do it again, the engine is coming out?

Definitely need a partner and a good variety of tools. Also I canít imagine how someone would change out section 1 without also dropping section 2.

I disagree with both sentences. Done it by myself and just removed sect 1 by itself by loosening sect 2 cross brace.

I mean yes it would be POSSIBLE to do it alone, but were multiple times when an extra set of hands went a long way

It's not that bad. You just need patience and the right tools which is time consuming. It's not a complicated DIY at all.

Default Re: DIY: Aftermarket header and section 1 install

Started this project over the weekend, and everything seems pretty straight forward so far, letting the header nuts soak now. Can anyone offer a little more in depth info/process of extending and routing the O2 sensors (I'm using euro headers and cats). I understand you just pull them put to extend but I don't want to just start yanking and break clips or anything. Also, once everything is out, I'm assuming screw the O2 sensors into the headers before putting them back up into place?
