Installation Time: Full Day

Great headers overall
If you want to avoid the possibility of dealing with any fitment issues, you can't go wrong with spending a few extra bucks on these headers. The x-pipe it comes with bolts on perfectly to the stock exhaust that connects to your axle-back/mufflers.
If you want to keep your cats, there aren't many options on the market right now; this kit does an awesome job of letting me pass inspection while not restricting airflow. I felt a noticeable gain in power in 2nd and 3rd gear especially.
They're so incredibly loud when you get on it and I personally love it. At cruising speed it's like all you have is an axleback, no drone whatsoever.
Install was not easy on jack stands, took a full day, but most of the time was spent removing the old headers. I couldn't get the downpipe separated from the stock headers; spent about 2 hours working on the bolts and then decided to cut the old exhaust at the h-pipe and just pull the entire header/downpipe off at once (this is a good option if you have rusty bolts and don't need your old exhaust, there's plenty of space in the engine bay to wiggle it out in one piece).
Overall, well worth it in my opinion, but definitely not something I'd want to do again if I wasn't getting paid and didn't have a lift!
As far as sound goes, I have it paired with roush axlebacks and it sort of keeps the raspy roush tone, but much much angrier :)
