Exhaust removal
« on: July 12, 2012, 09:33:20 AM »
Did a quick search but can't find any info on removing the exhaust headers - has anyone done this and is it pretty straight forward?

thanks

Just unbolt them? When they go back the torque is surprisingly low and you just need to get the torqueing order correct.

Why are you removing the headers? Just curious.
Every time the history repeats itself, the price goes up.

Can any one confirm whether the rad needs removing to get the headers off, or just 'tilting' out of the way - do the front plastics need removing to do either of the above?
thanks.

@leftbankfunkateer - thorough cleaning of both headers and engine/sump.

Removed headers yesterday.  I had to let rad hang on hoses to get good access. Make sure to order the header gaskets & header nuts. Several of my nuts were difficult to remove. Manual says to replace them. Cutting the cat out on Monday.
