Installed Kooks 1-5/8" Headers
Wasn't planning on doing headers on my Mustang but I saw these on Amazon for $438. Kooks recently changed their part numbers so some one probably thought they discontinued these, marked them down for clearing out the warehouse. Still had to buy the mid-pipe though for $450, offroad X-pipe.
Started with the passenger side and tried to do it without lowering the K-member, I couldn't raise the engine high enough because of my Boss intake. Decided to buy an Engine Support Bar and lowered the K-member, so much easier. Had plenty of room after doing that, only took 6 hours after that.
The headers are definitely loud, off-road X pipe combined with Borla S-Types. Did feel a gain in torque, especially down low. Up top the engine likes not having the cats there. Not the huge 1-7/8" primaries since I don't plan on doing a supercharger, nor the 1-3/4" that people normally do for NA. If the math still supports it, the 302 with 1-5/8" primaries will do peak torque around 4800 RPM's. If the track doesn't get damaged from all the rain we have been getting the past month I should see some gain in trap speed.
