BBK Shorty Headers

I will be installing my bbk shorty headers tommorow and was wondering if anybody had any tips on installing them or if there is something i should be looking out for during the install?In the instructions it says to remove the plugs and wires,is that necessary?

Thanks,
Sam

I kept my plugs in but I did remove the wires. Just be careful not to break a plug. You also will have to disconnect the steering shaft.

yeah, definitely watch the spark plugs...very common that they get damaged during header install

Why did you disconnect the steering shaft? You can get the headers on without taking it off.

Pull the plugs, you never know if the headers are going to slip or dip into a plug and break it.

Should take about an hour maybe an hour and a half if you take your time.
