Do you have a set of ratcheting wrenches or a socket wrench? The only bolt that can't be tightened with a ratcheting wrench is the bottom rear passenger side bolt. Not enough clearance to fit the wrench over the stud, the pipe is too close. If you have a just a socket wrench, I don't think that will work on a lot of them due to lack of clearance

They were on sale with 10% off and then the Cyber Monday was another 20% off. I saved 106.00.

This type of wrench can help you with that hard to reach nut. Just be patient as you may just have 1/8 to 1/4 turn every bite.

Yesterday I saw the ceramic bbk shorties for 273 on anythingauto. Don't know why yours came out to 295 and 330. The chrome ones were 205.

I was born in Lynwood CA. and was living in Hesperia in 94 when I left. The only thing I miss is going to the beach.

I do believe they are M8 nuts, but they are not a 13mm head they are 1/2".

There are 3 nuts in the battery tray, removing the battery tray makes installation much easier- 3 8mm nuts

The engine studs are 5mm, in case they come out the engine block you can torque em nack in

The collector nuts, to tighten the headers down to the midpipe, are 17mm, 4 nuts total

The 12 nuts to tighten down the headers to the block are 1/2 in, a ratcheting wrench is highly reccomended, makes it much easier

Thank you sir. That will be so helpful as I can make sure I didn't miss anything

Make sure you have a couple of long 1/2 drive extentions and breaker bar or good ratchet and small pipe to break the mid pipe nuts loose. They are not the easiest to get to and they are tight.

Good advice, removing the oem parts is the hardest thing to do on the install. Be patient and allow yourself about 4 hours from start to finsh.
