Race Header Installed!!

Well, today i recieved my race header after my toil and trouble from UPS. well i couldnt wait to get the thing on so i made my way over to a friends house because it was well after dark when we started and i needed a garage.

first off, i started getting the cat off, i removed the 02 sensors and then unbolted what i could of the cat in from the bottom, then i unbolted the header and had a fit trying to get the egr tube off. but we did and had a fit trying to get the egr tube back onto the race header, once my friend worked his magic with that we bolted everything up and then we installed the flexpipe. got all that bolted up and it was time to start the car after reattaching the battery cables. (btw i made that sound like it took no time, but it took about 2 hours.)

wow when i started it, it was loud as crap. we took it out and i felt alot more torque and hp in all ranges and all gears. but the most significant change was the sound. it sounds real good in higher rpms and sounds kindof gluggy in lower rpms but hey who cares. ill get pics up soon of the header and flex.

i love driving the car now its very quick, and a buddy of mine with a mustang gt says that hes nervous that i will beat him after i took him out for a run .
