Day off today, so the JBA Shorty Headers went in.

Out with the old, in with the new (pics below). Install was pretty much as expected. Managed to do it in my backyard, by myself, without pulling the plugs. Didn't break anything as far as I can tell. I haven't started it yet because I've got a few loose ends to tie up tomorrow morning.

Fitment of the JBA Shorty Headers with the JBA High-flow Catted Midpipes is near perfect. I may want to replace the gaskets though, as they were flimsy.

Now we'll see where the gains, if any, come with Shorties. Is it the high-flow catted midpipes? Or do the Shorties also add power?

No other changes, and I'll be hitting the track Sunday afternoon in 80* clear weather.
