Just got them in the mail, look pretty sweet! ill be getting them on sometime this week and upload more pictures as well



Uploaded with ImageShack.us

Does anyone know if the stock gaskets where the headers meet the heads will match up fine or if i need to buy differnt ones since the opening is bigger? If so which ones would fit?

Stock gaskets on the heads will work.

sounds about the same at idle, when you get on it its very loud Very Happy . There were some gains could deffinatly tell its quicker and has more top end power than before. There is a ticking noise which i assume is from the flex section in the down pipe. Tad bit raspy which it sounds like is normal for these cars, kind of mellowed out since i installed them. Very little if any drone on the highway that i could tell. Very pleased with this purchase other that the f**kin install. I knew everyone said it sucked to do but damn

They look even color .. a good sign. Smile
Check your plug wire routing. Headers tend to burn them up real fast when they get too close. It migt be the camera angle but the wire looks very close the the tube on cylinder #1.
