An btw it only took me 10 hours or so, due to buying used stuff and it already flexed to fit the original car so we had lots of fitment issues, mainly w the x pipe.... If it were new I would think we could have knocked it out in 6.... Maybe 4 now that we know what we are doing

Uh your gona need a stogy also. Simple job, take your time and all will b fine. Only tip I have besides patience is, there's a bar connecting the k member together that needs to b removed AMs how to leaves out. Other than that, It's a good write up. Make shur u can start all bolts by hand with out a wrench. U could cross thread a bolt real easy . If using a lift raise it no higher than u can reach from ur knees, once u jack the engine u will have to work the top side from a ladder. If u run into a problem, sit down and smoke about it. I had to grind one hole slightly on the headers. Other than that fit great. Good luck

Your talking about the bar next to where the front a arm brace goes... We did not have to move that... But it sounds like every car has different issues... It was a LOOONG day... I'm not used to working on cars do I enjoyed it due to it being my first real install... That's why I want to do it again so I can get good at this sort of thing

Just now I went to redbox to get the kids a movie (they are out of school tomorrow) and this black 06 GT I've been seeing around town pulled out in front of me... I flashed him to get his attention so GE would pull over (I like to meet fellow stangers, not very many in my town) plus his exhaust sounds great an I wanted to see what he was running... He finally pulls over and looked at me like he was about to try and fight... Lol wtf is wrong w people

We had a lift and we lifted the engine like 4 inches dropped the motor mounts and starter and it was cheese balls...the passenger side was the worst.took a pizza and beer break and we were good....like everyone says a ratcheting boxed end wrench would of been magical, however it seemed to be the size we didn't have!!!

Clearing the headers from underneath and removing the old manifold bolts that are right behind the mounts
