Re: Headers install

u may or may not need to consider heat wrapping the starter. and make sure u got the car as high in the air as u can get it. im not sure bout your era of car, but thats been my experience.

Re: Headers install

Have plenty of beer on hand ... you're in for a "rip-roarin good time" from what I've read. There have been a few threads discussing this here and elsewhere, I don't have any on hand but you might be able to find them by searching this site, or even better, on Google.

Re: Headers install

Thanks guys I've found an article about removing the k-member I'm gonna give that a try. Maybe I'll put it up on the lift and evaluate the situation before I just start tearing it apart haha. Oh I'll have plenty of beer there.
