well i have to get home from this deployment and take them off the car first, so its not really a matter of just getting around to it lol but when they come off i'll send them to you for a killer deal because theyre kinda beat up. the headers need to be sanded down and repainted/recoated, but past that they're fine.
I have the pacesetters. I installed mine when I was waiting on a new transmission to get to me. I figured there was no better time to do it than when there is a giant gaping hole with the tranny removed to install them.
I sanded mine down and sprayed VHT on them. Didnt put primer on them so it looks like crap now since its been about a year and a half. But the looks dont bother me.
The install is a bitch. Most of the bolts are easy but its the ones in the middle on the bottom that are annoying. I have small hands so i got them fairly quickly but it didnt stop my hand from cramping from the crazy positions i had them in turning the bolts. Run the top bolts down first on each one since they are easily accessible under the hood. I remember the steering arm has to come out to get them in there but thats easy, just secure your steering wheel in the straight forward position with your seatbelt. I recommend getting the o2 sensor extension from AM for like 20$ or something like that. Saves time and hassle extending the wires.
They sound good overall and they are a great deal with not costing an arm and a leg.
This how to is going to go over how to install a 2010+ steering wheel into your 05-09 (I did the Boss steering wheel into my 06) and have all of the buttons function properly.
PLEASE READ THE ENTIRE THING BEFORE STARTING, TRUST ME

My questions are:
1. - How do I know it is a Teksid?
2. - What should I look at visually in general when buying a used engine block? (Obviously there shouldn't be holes in the side of the...
