Headers & HFCs installed - took me a long time

Took 5 hours. Between the O2 sensors not coming out, and only getting a few degrees of rotation on the wrench to remove the manifold bolts, it got time consuming. I really didn't enjoy working on the car. The clearances are too tight. No surprises however - great info in DIY section of camaro5. TSP headers were pefect too.

Took me about the same time...I installed headers and a complete exhaust system. The stock manifolds were the major time consumer for me.

Wow, glad I paid my shop $175 to install mine. I got a good deal in March with a $400 dyno tune.

So far no Check Engine Light (anti jinxies) Here is a pic of the downstream O2 Sensor in the High Flow Cat. I had this bung welded in.

I did the whole exhaust system in about the same time. Geting those O2's out took the longest.
