L/T Install Questions..

So while I'm waiting (and waiting, and waiting) for my Mac Ceramic L/Ts to get here, I'm trying to get together everything I will need to install them and my O/R Pro Chamber.

Of course, I will need new gaskets, but I'm trying to figure out what I'll need as far as o2 extensions, etc.

Currently, I'm running Bassani X-Pipe with the cats and Borla Stingers. These were on the car when I bought it, so I don't know what kind of extensions are already on it (would it of needed some?)...probably right?

Anyways, since the mid pipe is O/R, I will still throw a code once they're installed so do I need to bother with the extensions? What would I get the plug the holes? Or would I just put the o2 sensors in and not have them hooked up? (I have a SCT SF4 with Bama Tunes that will get rid of my CEL).

Sorry for the nooby questions, but I don't have a lot of experience in the exhaust field, so any help is appreciated!

This is what someone would need when installing Lt's and an O/R midpipe.

A pair of mil eliminators for the rear o2's.

Then you'll need a pair of o2 extenders for the front pair of o2's.

Since I have a handheld Bama tune, that should turn off my CEL, so I wouldn't need the MILs. Right?

And no, I'm not doing the install myself, I would rather pay someone to do that... haha.

Have you got install quotes yet? A shop is going to drop the entire K member to do it and it won't exactly be cheap. IMHO, longtubes are one of the LEAST "bang for the buck" mods for a 4.6L since the factory manifolds aren't really restrictive. Not like the 5.0 pushrod stock headers... those were terribad...

Yes, it's only going to cost me about $200 from the guy that normally works on my car. Having a 78mm TB/Plenum, CAI, Mid Pipe and Borla Stingers, I wanted to add the L/Ts to help the air flow a little more and because, well, I wanted to.

Damn... if that guy is near NJ let me know lol. $200 for a longtube install is nothing. Get some Percy's dead soft aluminum header gaskets for him to put in while you are at it. They seal up great and will not blow out.

haha, Nah, he's here in S.C and it is quite a low price.

I believe I'm going with new OEM Gaskets from Ford as well as new header bolts/nuts from them as well. I want to make sure this is done once and only once...no leaks/problems. From what I've been reading, that seems the best avenue to go.

L/T Install Questions..

He is in the Anderson area. He works at a shop in Anderson, but does mods on the weekends to make some extra cash. I don't even know if I am supposed to give out the info on the price he gave me. Haha. Maybe it's low because I have boobs?


...and no, I did not, nor do I ever, flirt to get stuff cheaper...I was being funny. (To those who take everything seriously)

Hey whatever works lol. But typically it is bad form to give out someone's prices, I usually refrain myself and just refer interested parties to the person doing the work.
