No, it isn't true. To put headers on you take the stockers off and install new. You may need a tune update, but you don't have to remove heads to install headers.

That's how I installed mine. It's a PITA with space and all, but it can be done on jackstands no problem. You may want to drop the K-Member just to give yourself some extra room as well.

It's the part that supports your motor and that your front suspension is bolted to.

How long did it take for you to install your headers? And so you think jba long tubes and a catted x pipe is a good set up to put on

Re: head problems.. need help please

i didnt drop the k member. the install is alot easier than alot of people told me. i just drove my car on ramps and did it on the ground. do the drivers side first, its the hardest. but its still not hard. you have to unbolt the driver side motor mount only and jack the motor up some to clear the steering shaft. the pass side slips right in. the worst part is getting to the bolts to bolt the headers up. be careful on buying cheap headers esp. if you get longtube headers. go with kooks and they fit perfect. need any help just ask me.
