DIY: OBX Headers Installation

Postby 20SoLaRa02 » Wed Aug 19, 2009 11:05 pm

GREAT TUTORIAL. I was able to finally complete the job after 4 days of work. The reason it took me so long was i had to keep going out to buy parts and then i didn't even have the egr tube. Also i'm not the best mechanic. I almost gave up at one point. If i had to do it all over again i'd probably take it to a shop, but that's just me.

For anybody who is going to attempt this DIY it is very possible to do by yourself. Just make sure you have all the exact tools mentioned.

Thanks for the tutorial

Great Tutorial. What does it mean if the CEL light comes on. If I installed these would I have to put a cat on or would it still run ok? How would I get by without installing a cat?

You will have to install a cat or a O2 simulator to keep the light off.

Thanks for a very helpful tutorial. Does the OBX Y pipe fit on the stock headers? I have a Greddy cat back on now..

Thanks again.

No. The factory manifolds are a 2 bolt design, OBX is 3
