After installing Long Tubes

Hey guy just have a question for anyone how has installed long tubes. after you installed them did the car (this is where it gets hard to explain) like vibrate or feel like its a rumble rougher rider or crapper ride its hard to explain but its more noticeable between 70-80. is it because the collectors for the x pipe are bigger then the old one and are right under the seat?

Any help would be great

Thanks Connor

I suggest you climb under there and check for any where the headers may be contacting the chassis

That's why you always buy headers with the best fitments. Things like this may happen.

Now that your done criticizing his choice of headers. Lets try to help him.
I would suggest getting to a 4 wheel lift and standing under the car to see where is't rubbing. If you can't see it right away, try starting the car and duplicating sound while standing under the car.

Which headers have the best fitment, I'm planing on getting LTs also. Not sure weather I go with O/R X or cats though.

Kooks or ARH, I have heard a few complaints of fitment issues, but very few and far between, JBA's are a nice lower cost option, I've heard very few fitment issues from them, but for lowered cars, they hang down a bit more than the others

I went the route with Kooks and they slid right in. I haven't had any issues what so ever.

Chech I'm installing Kooks headers tomorrow on my 2014 GT did you reuse the factory studs and nuts or did you use the stage 8 bolts that came with the headers

I just reused the factory hardware I've had mine on for a few months and no leaks. I've just kept the new hardware invade I may need them some time down the road.

I currently have JBA installed but I keep killing the upstream bank 1 sensor so Shaun at AED told me to ditch the JBA and go with Kooks so I bought the complete Kooks kit with off road X pipe and cat back. I have a lift at my shop I removed all the exhaust tonight left the headers on so I will have to remove those tomorrow I not removing my k member for the install. Did you have to install starter before putting on the passenger side header? The instructions say to put the starter on afterwards but from some post I've been reading the say you need to install the starter first.

The starter install with kooks is a pain it took me a bit to figure out which hand went were and what size extension to use to get it in. I've always installed the starter after the long tubes go in. You have to get the top bolt in on the starter blindly going in with only your hands to feel for it. IT SUCKS.... I had the Roush axle backs on with the reso's deleted but I'm not sure why but I kept blowing out the baffles inside the passanger side. I went through 2 set's of those before I switched to MBRP's 3" stainless steal set up.

I have a video on my Instagram that has a good clip of what it sounds like. I really miss the way it sounded on the interstate. It wasn't loud unless you went over 3k rpm's after that it sounded like a jet was trying to take off behind you.
