Progress on long tube headers install and step by step insall

So iv been prepping for my long tube header install for a while and I finally started it today. I will be updating this post as I progress thro the project

So far this is what I have done
1. I ordered pacesetters long tube headers and I striped the black paint and painted both headers with high temp paint

2. I disconnected the battery and removed the battery box

3. I then removed my stock h pipe

4. Then removed the stering rod in the engine bay.

5. Then toke out the starter on the passenger side.

This is were I am at now I will post more pics of the project tommorw morning and update this with things I will do in the morning. If anyone wantsore detail including sizes of bolts I'm more the. Happy to help Click image for larger version

This'll be interesting. I've heard nothing but complaints on pacesetter fitment.

See I herd good reviews on them about fitment. The only problem I herd was the paint. And making shure to get them coated with a lot of ceramic paint ( I was told the flame proff can would work)

We'll I'm pretty confident in my abilities to get this done. I have done a ton of research before I started. The reson I'm doing it my self is becouse the cost for a shop is just to high

300 is a steal for install price on longtubes from a shop.

So I got a late start today. I barely started at 430. And finished at 515 becouse it got way to dark. Here's my step for today

1. Removed oil catch can

2. Removed tower brace

3. Removed the driver side motor mount

4. Raised up the engine and removed motor mount from engine

5. Removed the stock header and that's were I'm at today

The way I look at it is that I could take that money and buy other mods. And plus there's nothing like the pride of saying " I did this on my own" and honestly I fell like if someone else does work on ur car. You didn't make it faster they did

If you have enough room, I would drop the k member. That's what I did when I installed my stainless works headers. Makes it a whole lot easier & I didn't have to remove the starter.

So I'm ganan start of by saying this is the closest iv ever been to just setting my car on fire and walking away. I worked on it for another hour today and here's what I got done.

They supply you with some new header bolts to replace the old studs. You are supposed to remove them. Since I'm working by myself I left them in to hold the header in place. What I did was slide the header in with the gasket onto the studs I left in. Then I would tighten down some bolts. On top the first 3 are easy to hand tight but the last one requiers a gear wrench I will have to by tommorw. On the bottom it is impossible for me to get the 2 rear bolts in. But the other 2 are easy. Then I lowerd the engine down a little and got the header flush and tightend down the bolts. So now I am very close to being finished with the driver side

Today I got the driver side header all tightened up and my driver side motor mount back on. And the dip stick

The fitment on my pacesetter header is great I have had no problems with it besides the 2 back bolt on the very bottom. But after some swear word, elbow grease and a gear wrench I got the 2nd to last one in but the last one is not possible to get with the engine in the car.

Tommorw I will re install the stering shaft and start on the passenger side wich I hear is a whole lot Easyer then the other side. Fingers crossed

Glad to hear about good progress! You will love long tubes. As for the passenger, its 100x easier than the driver side! Good thing you got the hard one out of the way first! Good luck with the rest of the install and if you can, let us hear a video of the open headers when done and your full set up!
