Did you have it checked for cracks? Everything seated good and torqued down correctly?

Did it do it right off the bat, or after driving it a bit?

Yes every thing is installed correctly and the heads were presure tested and resurfaced to take warp out

Well the exhaust will help then. If it was a 4.6 shorty headers don't do alot. They get you 5 hp top end but cost you more than that in torque down low

Ya...they don't really do much. On a new edge 4.6 they aren't worth the cost
