should i get headers?
just wondering what your opinions on headers are , so who has em!?
everyone is going to tell you porting your stock exhaust manifold would be the best option without consequences. Some will tell you the OBX header is junk because it cracks. Most of the people that used the OBX or forza header welded in a flex pipe and had no problems. Its all personal preference. I still have to put on my forza header
what? porting a stock exhaust manifold is a waste of money.
Getting an after market header for a car that maxes out on 120HP without a turbo is a waste.
agreed port stock header...
you might even get more mpg out of it cause of pumping efficiency improvements
from the front side, there are some lips in the holes, and in the down-back side when all the pipes come together, there is usually a BIG ASS weld mass thing in the middle, grind that down...
IF by any reason afterwards you get exhaust leaks, weld on the outside, and grind some more in side then to make it perfect.
just get a header. you don't need headers
agree,headers is for v6,v8,v10 and v12
I got header and I like em
i have an obx. its a piece of shit. the airflow through it sounds like garbage.
Leave it alone and get a new car.
don't forget the flat 4.
I gotta do a t-belt on my FXT today...feel free to visit and help!
so going off topic. has anyone installed hotchkis sway bars by them selves?
awww c'mon now!
with help, yes. find someone with a lift...it makes things SO MUCH EASIER.
dude, i didn't do *mine* when it needed to be done. i paid someone else to do it for me.
I did my own sway bars, it not that difficult, but you have to drop the gas tank down to change the rear bar, but to do that you have to drop the exhaust. If you have a one piece aftermarket exhaust then I dont know how you can do it. But I had stock exhaust and I tried to unbolt it but of course the bolts just broke off, so I had to drill them out and rebolt it up. It kinda sucked but the new sway bars are awesome
i heard boxer engine is hard to work on,just bring it to subby shop and pay extra to get the job done quicker.
it's not hard. it IS a pain in the ass, due to the configuration. something as stupidly simple as changing spark plugs almost guarantees busted knuckles, even if your hands are little like mine.
thats what i meant
ok, then actually say what you mean.
I will, troll.
Shut up hummer
Lol, owned. Maybe that means ill be driving a lexus some day.
In other news, I got headerS today!
Ohhhh that's what was in the box.
