2011+ header install.

To the ppl have done it w/o the use of a lift. Did you remove the motor mounts?. In the different install instructions that I have read some do and some don't. Everyone that I have read about they had a lift.

If you don't have a lift it's going to be very hard ... you might just want to have a shop install them. Everyone else used a lift for a reason.

That was the plan. Did they remove the motor mounts? Or can they be maneuvered out w/o removing them.

I really don't like removing motor mounts. If its a necessity ill do it but I want to avoid it at all cost. I already have 2 volunteers (who are also motorheads) to help me and my boss is a car junkie so he said I can do it in our air conditioned testing lab.

If youre asking these questions youre going to have a lot of fun installing these. I heard the install takes a while for experienced mechanics with hydraulics lifts.

I've been quoted in VA $800 that includes installing the x-pipe as well.

I just got off the phone with a shop in Pearland, Texas. They said $600 for install with my parts. He also offered me a better deal on the install if I purchased his headers. He told me they are stainless American Racing stainless long tubes. He told me 1400 for the headers. I told him that was a little more then I was willing to spend on parts.


As we continued to talk to he asked me what else I had done u told him nothing yet but I wanted CAI an tune in addition to the headers.

He told me he could do JLT CAI, AR long tube headers mid pipe, and a custom dyno tune for 3k drive out. I have checked different reviews on the business and e seems to have a good reputation among the local community.

To my untrained sense that seems like a not too shabby deal.

That also included an SCT tuner.

If that includes an sct and a cai or boss install kit it's a good deal.

$600 is about average around here(Houston ) for long tubes and x-pipe install. Put the CAI and tune on yourself and save 1k.

I would definitely go with the bama tune from AM. From what I have been reading, They stand behind it 100% when you have a engine warranty issue with Ford.

On a side note... If you need any help just holler, I'm always down to turn some wrenches haha
