Header install is done

Well I spent the day installing some Pypes shortie headers took me about 10 hrs
by myself I took my time reused most of the stock hardware were I could the stock
studs use lock nuts I liked that much better then the bolts that came with the headers.
It was a pretty easy install I removed the starter and motor mounts and jacked up the engine after that I had all kinds of room the install the headers.
I still have a BBK catted X pipe to install tomorrow I left it off to give me some more room to install the new Hurst shifter

I live in a state that dose regular emissions testing so I wanted to keep all my o2 sensor and cats in the stock locations
I just wanted to open up the exhaust for better flow I plan to make all the HP I will need when I install a supercharger down the road.

oh my...

I did the jba equal length headers and prothane bullet poly mounts, took me 9hrs with a lift ... that was the most shi# job ever on a lift..... I am glad I did it, but bolt on mine were covered by pipes and I will never do it again..... until next time.
People who have not installed headers on their s197 should have to salute us when we drive by them. And that's the bottom line.

Did your kit have new gaskets, did you use the old ones or get a little liquid gasket?

The Pypes shorties came with gaskets and hardware bolts I did use the new gaskets that came with the headers but only some of the bolts I reused most of the stock studs with the factory lock nuts they tend to stay tight

I try to only keep no more than one stud per side to hold things up during install......
Reason being, if you have to ever replace a gasket, pull the bolts and slide it in.
Studs make it a bit more work to get the gasket in there...
I have the jba cat4ward equal length ceramic headers and they are tight, not to mention you are trying to not scratch the coating off.
