engine all warmed up, some revs up to 5000rpms, got some rasp due to no resonator (click on pic)

pics of headers installed and slightly used so they turned yellow

My cousin installed them, I was a supervisor/tool retriever lol.
but took pretty much 6 hours,mayabe less but idk lol, took him under 2 hours to get everything off, but then the crossover pipe wouldnt line up properly, after that we deleted the cat but didnt have the correct pipe, I had a 3'' to 2.5'' we need 3'' to 2.25'' so had to go to town to get the correct one, then the rest of the time was finding leaks and fixing them.

Nice, not terrible.

My stock crossover was pretty rusted to the rear manifold, downpipe was also super rusted to the rear mani.

I took some sawzall mechanics to it since I was trashing it anyways. Saved at least an hour of headache lol

for the headers shipped to canada, think it was $290.00, be cheaper for you state ppl. then the price of band clamps(clamps that come the headers leak so need band clamps)

mine was no cutting required to get the stock stuff off, everything came off nicely so that was nice, but i already had a 2.5'' downpipe that was installed 2 years ago so that might of helped.

Awesome job on the headers! sounds leak free and nice (minus the rasp since you didn't have a res installed) I enjoyed my setup I had but only difference was I used a res. Impala looks sharp!
