finally a picture up of the new header install

Ok finally got a chance to get the header put on,its a pacesetter header,and it works nice.I will post some videos up later.
Yes there is a piece sticking out but we ran out of washers lol,so we did it the hillbilly mechanic way of making sure it all tightens up real well.Nothing fell apart,so I am good to go.

yeah man its worth it,my brother couldn't get the top part of the downpipe connecting to the header so,I have to go a muffler shop that has a lift and have them finish the upper part of the downpipe.then it will be completely shut for welding,but I notice since its very close to being completely sealed,I gained quite a bit of hp and notice my car moves a hell of alot smoother,but its also really loud at the moment lol.After it is sealed completely it will have a better tone to it.

well besides that part,it still needs to be seal from the top actually,and it will tone it down a little bit more.
