I did some research on it awhile back because I was considering it, I got mixed opinons. Some said that they had to do a lot of modifying to get it to fit and others said that it was a good header. You'll just have to wait until he gets it to really find out

You need to save your money and buy a FS or FC race header. You will be glad you did later on down the road. Trust me.
