to be honest it was kinda a pain, since we sanded stuff down which was time consuming but other than that pretty easy since jesse knew what he was doing, and the color stiching also is time consuming but it was worth it i think didnt like it while i was doing it but man the outcome was ended up really nice im quite happy with it, plus it was only acuple bucks so why not ?

i hope so bro, so once im done getting my headers coated im gonna meet up with john so i can get them installed and tuned by a shop by his pad, i just gotta have a before and after video of them, but i was thinking since my car is a dd i doubt im gonna cam it now, so instead of buying all this stuff for my car i might buy a m4 for my bday as a present to myself, i really need to take a break from modding and chill, let my savings account build up. i mean once my disabilities from the va starts to hit then i might start modding again

Hey Bro, I don't want you to think that the headers are going to change the sound 100%. I was actually quite surprised after my Kooks were installed with the straight pipe & no cats, I thought it would be much louder, but at idle I didn't notice too much, but that could just be because my car's build was like 6+ months and I really didn't log too much time behind the wheel. Now performance wise, they KICK ASS and when I'm moving it sounds awesome. What exhaust system are you running because that will also effect the sound too.

I just don't want you to think it's going to be like night & day difference. Hit me up when you can, because we'd like to get you to drop the car off Friday night so we can do the wrap, install & tune on Saturday so you can have it be the evening.

I picked up just under 40 rwhp with just adding the Kooks, but keep in mind that also depends on air intake, cats, mufflers/exhaust system.
