More than likely. Would keep an eye on it while you let it burn off though. Don't want to take a chance like that.

Grease on your hands from working on the headers is burning off, no biggie. Like mentioned, keep an eye on it just in case. Everytime I touch anything on or gets hot from the engine it smokes until the car's been running a few minutes.

Reds is a worry wart!!!


It shouldnt burn for that long. All you wanna watch for really is flareup. You dont want a good size plug of grease to flare up and catch some wires or something on fire. Ive never really even had a flare up that you couldnt blow out like a candle.

First off, don't revive 5 year old threads, second, headers for a manual won't fit an auto, but the reverse usually works.
