No "How to install headers" thread?

I am about to install my RIPP headers and i just did some searching and couldn't find a HOW TO. i was pretty sure there would be one on this topic. correct me if i'm wrong.

There is one. It's in the garage section.

Remove bolts, remove O2 sensors, replace headers, put bolts/O2 sensors back in, simple as that.

Removing your intake manifold helps from what I hear. Have fun!

Use plenty of pb blaster. Header install is simple you might need to extend the wires on the o2 sensor with the ripp headers

Don't forget to check the search button for CEL codes before asking.

New bung, your car will run like shit if you take out one of the O2 sensors on stock management, before you install the headers, bring the rear header to an exhaust shop to get a new bung installed, be sure to find a place that will fit about 4" of extension (for the O2 sensor) and that is about 12in-36in from the exhaust ports.

Cheya,

To the OP, you'll likely throw codes. Search for O2 simulators.

thanks guys. i had heard of tons of codes from all this but i figured if i get it done right i wont have a problem. and only reason i was asking about an extra bung is because i bought the headers from a guy that had a supercharger and wideband but there is still only 4 bungs.

Did he have an 00? We 00's only have 2 bungs thus leaving one for him to use. Otherwise...

Good luck on the install. A good impact gun, some extenders and a good strong joint help emmencly.

You'll need 5 if you're putting in a wideband, get another one welded in, the bung will be $10 and probably another $10-15 for them to weld it in, well worth it IMO, just make sure you have some extra room.

He should have the wideband installed on cylinder 4 as it will run the leanest of them all.

Wait what I think you got this confused with egt probe you want that installed on #4 cause it runs the hottest. You want the wideband installed after both banks before the main cat.

Wow bump city...some just block it or just fabricate a new egr that runs up to the intake so you dont throw any codes (if you live in an emission inspection state).
