Step 1 After installing your new BBK full-length headers, you can now install the matching short H-pipe by simply bolting it in place of the old H-pipe assembly, *

Step 2 Using the washers and nuts supplied with your full-lengths stud kit, mount the front H-pipe flanges to the header collectors.

Step 3 Using the hardware kit supplied with the new BBK short H-pipe, attach the rear of the H-pipe to the muffler extension tubes (before tightening ensure that the tailpipes are in the correct location, if not move the H-pipe accordingly, then tighten).

Step 4 Reconnect factory air tube if installing on catalyst equipped pipes.

* It may be necessary to use some WD-40 to aid in the hanger installation. Due to the metal to rubber slide mount these units can become sticky.
