No need to apologise Steve, your info is very helpful & appreciated. is it a difficult job? I am mechanically minded but dont want to mess something up as its my only form of transport for myself & the wife.
Are the longer bolts & nuts a must then I take it?
It not too difficult and removing the washer bottle gives you a lot more room, but TBH It will be a pain on the floor without a ramp as some of the lower manifold studs are a pig to get to. One tip is if you do want to go ahead and fit them wire brush and WD40 all the studs and nuts a few days before you start the job......
Happy days & thank you again. This could be a new mod for me to get done too. Have you heat wrapped your manifold?
Sorry for all the questions
Thank you Steve, help is always appreciated. My reason for heat wrapping is only due to things ive heard about the increased temperature in the engine bay due to the stainless steel getting hotter. This may or may not effect cold air intake even though I have a good heat shield and heat foil on the engine bay side of that too.
I have had the same stainless steel headers as Steve fitted on my car for a few months now, they do make the acceleration smoother and the exhaust note very pleasing. I heat sprayed and wrapped mine in the end too
This leads me to my next question.
Is it worth me heat wrapping the rest of my exhaust system and has anyone done it please?
First hi to all,i am sorry for my english but i do my best!Now to last post,all in all i heard about heat wrapping this keep engine bay colder temperature and too keep every runner same temperature for better gas flow!I never heard about wrapping the rest of the exhaust system!
