QUICK HEADERS INSTALL HELP!!!!!

basically done installing my bbk headers and the Oxygen sensor underneath on the drivers side is too short, so i just zip tied it up and figured i would deal with it tomorrow...

I started my car and it instantly turned off. Is that because the oxygen sensor is unplugged under there??? or is something else up???

I don't think it's cuz of the o2sensor since its plugged in it would just throw a code,,,did you tight ur spark plugs good enough,, did u crack any of them? What else did you disconnect?

feewwwwww, we're all good. I had forgotten to plug back in the mass airflow sensor.

N000000BBBBBBBB.....

Any idea where i can get an extension for the Oxygen sensor underneath the driver side. (lower sensor) It's the random square one while the others + their extenders were kind of oval shaped....

So the headers install, 10 hours later, turned out great! I love the sound, but a quick question...

Does my computer need to 'learn' them???

Too be honest, didn't really notice a difference in power. Will That come with a little time??

Did you disconnect the battery? They say it's a good idea to do so when doing a mod affecting air/fuel ratio. It resets the ECM and allows it to relearn the new situation more quickly.

Short answer: Yes!

I did disconnect the battery so hopefully it will kick in soon. Either way, i love the way the BBKs sound with the MRT v2 so it's still worth it

BBK did send the extenders with the headers? The one may seem too short with the extender but others were able to pull some slack from the harness that was keeping it too short.
People let them know at least 2-years ago that the plugs on their extenders were wrong and needed to have a tab cut. Apparently they don't really care?

Did anyone get a loud vibration noise coming from either inside the dash or engine after installing headers???

And hopefully figure out what it is??

It only happens during the cold start, but it's annoying.

I checked the bolts, they are all very tight. And it's just during the heavy vibration of cold start..

it doesn't really sound like a metal vibration if that makes sense... It sounds like what a loose plastic panel vibrating would sound like, but i'm pretty sure i did't move any plastic pieces...

Any other ideas??? I know this is a hard one to answer because it's defiantly something you have to kid of hear, but i figured that it doesn't hurt to ask.

Like u said id have to hear it...its probably something so easy u dont know what it is..check the extensions on the o2 sensora maybe the connectors are hitting something when u start it up? Did u tie them down to somethink? I kbow mine were to loose so i tied thwm down

What kind of vibration? is it vibration that's accompanied with rattle, knock, etc.. or just slight vibration only? if is only vibration than that's normal. After header your car will vibrate a little more especially for the first start up and in cold temp.

never mind, just saw your post. Just remember that aftermarket headers will be alot noisier vs factory cast manifold. You are probably hearing new engine noise with more vibration which is normal.

Yeah, it sounds like its something on the dash/ again/ a plastic part, but i can't figure it out because it only last for about 5 seconds during the begging of the cold start... This is going to be an adventure trying to figure it out.

Thanks for your ideas/ input so far!

Did you try to reuse any of the factory heat shields?
If so, make sure there's room around them.

Neither did I, but I know others have, and had a rattle on initial starts.

I didn't reuse the main ones that go over the headers but i'm going to check the heat shields connected to the factory gaskets. After thinking about it, one of the might've gotten bent in a little bit so hopefully it's that.

Thanks for the ideas guys!
