Default Raceland Headers

Hey guys, so im back again. I felt that i should step up and contribute something back to the E36 community, and at the same time work on my M3. as some of you know i ordered Raceland Headers from Raceland USA on ebay. here are some pics: (you will notice that i had flanges made to retrofit a clean install)















Doing the job was a bit of a pain due to the fact that there is limited space in there. i cant imagine doing it on the floor.

I also had the whole stud come out along with the nut. (all of them)






Here are pics with one header in.......





And then both in! NOTE: I had to send the shorter header out to drill the holes bigger. they were not perfectly made so with bigger holes they were able to slip right in.

This whole project was cheap compared to expensive headers, these are my total costs:
$165- headers
$50- flanges
$80- weld mid pipe to header flanges (final install)
$44- rear rubber mounts
total = 339

But, i would recommend to buy header studs and nuts (all of them)..... it would make life soo much easier. and to send the headers out to get all the holes made bigger for an easier installation. i used a 11/32 drill bit.
also, the headers had holes up top, i just got bolts from the local auto parts store and then cut them shorter then screwed them in with red lock-tight.

here are 2 vids

Hope you all enjoyed, and some can use as a guide for the future

Thanks for the pics/writeup Ant, and congrats being one of the first ones (if not THE first) to complete it!

I'll vouch for how great this setup sounds - I took the vids (i know they suck) and the car just sounds like a monster!

Do you think there's a better place to open her up than a narrow two-lane road adjacent to single family homes? Please...use some common sense.
