Sure. I pretty much copy what bigshow14 posted in his write up. It's in Diy sec. One thing I'd like to add though is to wear mechanic gloves or you'll end up like this... Lol other than that it's a straight forward instructions.

I prefer the MAC design over the BBK.


I also have heard that the MAC's are easier to install but no real world data on my end just "heard".

Everything was easy except the collector bolt connecting the mid pipe was a pain to Uninstall you have to have brute force to take it off and the proper tools.

Trust me when I say very easy. With the manifolds removed 20-30 minutes a side. 6 bolts with a ratchet and 6 with a combo wrench. I used the oem manifold bolts and gaskets. The headers felt and sounded great, I really can feel the difference now that their removed. I hope the long tubes perform good enough to justify swapping to them.

I'm finally done wheww... It's been a long battle installing this thing, it would been so easier if I have so much time and that damn factory studs would have stayed in the heads. The sound is not loud but it is more deep and tamed. I only have Borla touring for axle back since don't need those loud exhaust. Performance wise like bigshow14 said it will take a few miles to fully get the potential of the headers will that is what I'm hoping cos right now I don't see any difference. Thanks again bigshow14 for the help I appreciate it.

Sounds deep! It took like 500mi to break mine in and you should notice the difference off the line. When I take off at a red light my car just shoots forward lol what other mods do you currently gave?

I already felt it today when I went to go for grocery I went the longer route this time lol.. It's so fun when you pass a tunnel and you can hear it roar from a dead stop and it accelerate so fast that you need cushion for your head. I have Mpt, borla axle back, airaid Cai and Mac shorty
