OBX Race Header Install

Hey, anyone know how to get the freaking EGR tube screwed into the header's bung? The stupid thing is all crooked and leaking on mine right now... I'm pretty sure it's causing my horrible exhaust note. Any help is appreciated... thanks

you did reuse the plug thing from the stock cat right? It's about 2" long and fits into both the header and egr tube. Mine fit just fine with that in place.

yes you use the same tube and fitting you just have to make it fit (bend it into place), put some anti seize on the threads to keep them from binding so their easier to turn by hand while you hold it in place. then once you get it in with your hand you can use a wrench to finish tightening it

Hey guys thanks for the input, I found a screw that holds the tube in place (back near the coil) and once you take that screw off the tube gets pretty easy to move.
