Here's a right up I responded to.--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I just put my Mac longtubes on and an o/r prochamber last week on my 07 and it took me almost 6 hours in my driveway on jack stands. I removed the starter, the steering shaft and motor mount brackets and motor mount on the passenger side. I put a block of wood under the oil pan and jacked it up a few inches. Keep in mind when you remove the steering shaft to mark it and try not to turn the wheel there is one bolt near the firewall and one bolt near the rack (easy to remove). Mac gives you new header bolts ( the factory uses studs and nuts to secure the manifolds). I kept a few of the studs because they hold the exhaust gaskets in place. When you remove the studs you will need a 5mm socket to unscrew them from the head. Also, my front O2 sensor on the passenger side would not reach the factory plugin and I needed an extension ( so I made one). Good luck to all those out there attempting this job, it takes some patience and I thought it was a PITA but damn does it sound good when your done !

I'm not sure how you could mess up the front 02 harness. If you leave the connectors in their clips, the left and right are nowhere near each other. Other than that, Kraigster covered it pretty good.

HAVE PATIENCE!

I followed this write up. Things I did different was I removed the battery and battery tray for extra clearance. I also removed the 3 starter bolts and laid it on the K-member. I did not remove the wires like it says to do in the write-up. Reuse the stock exhaust gaskets. They are pretty good

Have fun with it man. I did mine last weekend. I left the motor mount on the driver side on (probably would have been easier w/ it off) and left the starter on. There was plenty of room w/o taking it off. Just take your time and follow the instructions and you shouldn't have any problems. Good luck!

Also when working on whatever side your on. Remove the top motor mount nut and motor mount/engine adapter with its 4 bolts. Makes much more room. Also on the opposite side that your not working on just loosen the top motor mount nut as much with out removing the nut. This will help with the raising of the motor. That way the motor isn't completely off the motor mounts.
