I'll second the LM2 also being a pain in the arse. It's also a PITFA to try & wire into any tuning interface because of how they wired the ground circuits.

We're not that "local" to you, but we do them as well. A ton of them. We did about 30 sets of 3.91's in 2014.

It's a $30 sensor that sits behind the intake manifold that takes 10 minutes to install. Not a biggie.

Has the oil pressure gauge been fluctuating or doing anything funky?

Those look like an exact copy / ripoff of TSP's headers for the 5th gen.

None the less, great headers for the money.
