Just left my buddies house where he is installing my speed daddy headers. The front headers sits VERY close to the fan. Is this normal? I know other guys have these headers and am just wondering how fitment was. He said the rear header was a huge PITA to install as well.

Thanks

Please post back regarding the O2 sensors. Some say the upstream sensor hits the firewall, others say it doesn't, and then there's people who say that an extension is needed for downstream sensor.

The upstream hits the firewall but buying a bung for an O2 to relocate fixes the problem unless you wanna beat the floorboards with a bfh.... The pre cat requires the O2 extention the post cast does not

I had no trouble with my precat O2 sensor. All I did was get the extension harness and new O2(I had 74k so why not) and it all fit fine. Well all but the front manifold hitting the fan. I think I found a cure. I'm going to get a fan assy from a 06+ SS because it's just over 2" thick vs 4.5" for oe 00-04 Impala.

let me know if that works out ok... I had to relocate my O2 cuz i didn't wanna mess with banging the firewall out since it was pinching the wires.
