Long tube header install help!?

So im installing bbk longtube headers and i need to re-route the oil dipstick. How would i go about that? Is there an easy way to remove the dipstick tube and then put it back on after i put on the longtubes? Any info or past experience would help, thanks!!

I just had to work it in, you will have to bend it a little bit. Be sure not to kink it though!

Lokar flexible dipstick will go right in if you want to go that route.

It can be very hard, it's on there pretty tight, it's just a O-Ring , but there a bracket too, maybe a 10mm

People usually break them taking them off

When I did my longtubes my dipstick was cake to take off and put back in. And surprisingly even with the cheap pacesetter headers I had to make zero modifications to install them. Other then the fact that I also installed a tubular k member while I had the old one off. Sorry to hear the issues with yours
