The headers fit great. They were chrome in color and came with all necessary hardware. Although I didn't like the idea of going gasketless I had decided to reuse my stock metal gasket and torqued the downpipes ...

Great bang for the buck

I got the headers and I install them myself, I work in a shop so it wasn't too bad. Great quality plus no discoloration like you get on other brands. The car has a deeper tone and you can feel the power ...

    Great Deal

    The headers fit great. They were chrome in color and came with all necessary hardware. Although I didn't like the idea of going gasketless I had decided to reuse my stock metal gasket and torqued the downpipes to it's rated torque and everything was great. If you got the money, pay for the install. If you want to prove to yourself that you can do it then by all means. You have to disconnect the steering wheel shaft and move to the side on the driver side and remove the oil dipstick and also disconnect the O2 sensor harness then pretty much it comes right out from the bottom after taken out all of the studs with a 5mm socket. You must have patience with this because it can take awhile. On the passenger side, which to me is the hardest. You must also take out the battery box and take off the starter. While the car is raised on jack stands you must put a jack up to the motor and take off the motor mount bolts (1 on each side) and raise the engine about 2 inches. After that you have to take out all 4 bracket to engine bolts and then either move it to the side or take it completely off. I found out the stud for the motor mount bolt swivels so with a couple of good tugs I could take the bracket all the way off and take it through the bottom of the car. You have more room to work in with it all the way off then you can get to the bolt and studs. You have to do these things. There is no way around it. I tried to look for the easiest ways to install and this review sums it up. I did this install in my garage with my car on jack stands with a whole lot of patience, sweat, and tears but I got it done. Oh yea, I forgot, when you disconnect the steering wheel shaft you must mark the location where it is with permanent marker or white out and lock the steering wheel in place and take out the key before you disconnect the shaft or your airbag spring will be messed up and you will have to take it somewhere to get it reset. My Haynes book was my guide in helping me with this install. I have done home jobs that the dealership was going to charge over three thousand dollars and more for. I would not attempt any job without reading the chapter in my haynes book for the install first. I did this alone with no help. It would help you greatly to at least have a second person to help. I hope this helps.

    I got the headers and I install them myself, I work in a shop so it wasn't too bad. Great quality plus no discoloration like you get on other brands. The car has a deeper tone and you can feel the power gain. Mix it up with an x-pipe and some hi flow axle back mufflers and you wont regret it.

    It's worth the effort

    Read and understand the review written by silverstang. Do not try to install this any differently than how he explains to install these headers. You must take the steering column out. Put it back the same as it came out. Lock your steering wheel first! Do yourself a favor and get a stud removal tool before you start. The 5 mm socket either brakes the stud loose or rounds over. Do not use 12 point socket for this use he socket or 6 point socket. If you don't know what that is you shouldn't be doing this. Ok the passengers side you must take the starter out and get the engine secured [I used a 2X4 and my floor jack] then remove the passengers side engine mount. Oh do yourself a favor get the exaust completely out of the way first before you do anything!!! I thought I could work around it and finally got it out of my way. I was a sore puppy after getting done. I thought I was in pretty good shape too. If your like me you won't let anyone else touch your baby. So be patient and your hard work blood and sweat will be worth doing this. I'm getting Cecilia yes that's my cars name. Ready for a supercharger.

    MAC shorty headers

    Good fit and design. Most noticeable difference is when you get on it higher in the rpm, that's when you hear them and feel them. It's not a ridiculous difference in sound and performance but definitely noticeable and added more throatiness. The chrome does change different colors but I think it looks awesome. AM had these on clearance for cheap so they were worth picking up. I have these hooked up to a UPR catted x-pipe and MAC muffler axle back. Great sound. Thanks AM

    Exhaust leak

    I bought these and had a shop install. After 10 and a half hours, they are installed and now I have a exhaust leak where the heads bolt up. Cost was 860 bucks, so I am 1000 bucks in and not happy. I am sure there is power gain and etc. WIthout the leak. I am going to talk to the guy and try and find somehow to fix it without going another 1000 bucks in the hole. not happy at all. I love American Muscle and hate to down anything from them. But for the price of install and headers you could who with long tubes

    • Response from AmericanMuscle

      I'd absolutely take this back to the shop as there definitely seems to be something fishy going on with that install. We haven't heard of any leaking problems to date with these shorty headers. If you take it back to the shop and you are still having issues, please don't hesitate to give us a call so we can help figure out what's happening!
