Well, I had to take it in for my gears and t-loc install. I wouldnt have known where to start. Yea, wouldve been a good learning experiance, but I wouldve done something bad.

do you need to weld anything when you put in headers? How does the header connect to the exhaust? Am I right assuming that the headers connect to engine with just like a gasket and bolts???

it is all bolt up if you have the flanges in your mid pipe, and get extra studs cause you will probably need them
