I ordered 3.73's, O/R Prochamber, and ceramic coated MAC Lt's.

Has anyone ever installed the MAC LT's? I'm hoping they don't have any fitment issues. I'll let you know how the install goes.

RAGEman, I have the same set up on my ride, it's very deep and throaty, you won't be disappointed. The fit was fine on the passenger side, but we had to disconnect the steering on the drivers side. :mad:If you are doing a backyard install, I feel for you, on a scale of 1 to 10 for a pain in the A** vote, I'd say it's an 8. two man job makes it a little better. it is worth the suffering though when you fire it up for the first time. Don't for get to pick up some nice gaskets! Good luck

+1 Drop the K or support the motor and pull the passanger side motor mount completly out. there are 2 bolts on that side that are a pain to get too. Plan a few hours for it, it is definatly work

LOL. I know its a pain man. Me and Sweet2k did his when the tranny was out (for the 50th time,lol) tried to put the tranny back in and it wouldn't clear the headers. So we had to loosen the passanger side header, stab the tranny and re-tighten the passanger side. I am doing Macs on the Mach in a couple weeks and I am definatly getting a K-member. 100 times easier.

Yeah, it's just me in the garage. But I worked as a mechanic for several years, so none of this is completely new, but I'm sure it won't be easy. What gaskets do you recommend? Mr. Gasket?....I assume the ones that come with the headers are garbage.

I recommend Percy gaskets... they are reusable as well

by yourself, its going to be a lot lot lot of cussing!!

and pretty much everyone I know that has done LT's has only put 2 of the 3 starter bolts back on. We went ahead and replaced my motor mounts when we did mine

I'm thinking of getting these headers aswell, I already have a tubular k member so then it should alot easier, right? or will I still need to drop it to squeeze them in?

The k makes it alot easier. With the 4v I haven't realy checked if you will have to drop it to get em around cuz I haven't bought mine yet:D
If you do its easier and lighter with the tubular k.
