Default ELH Header Install

What is involved with installing an ELH?

Does the UELH come off, and the ELH bolt right up? Or will other parts need to be removed to get it done.

I'm looking at the ELH with the up pipe.

should be direct replacement. If you get KB, just make sure you also order the replacement stud set.

If you get the Killer B ELH that mates up to the OEM up-pipe, it's about a 30 minute install. If you get the Killer B up-pipe I've heard it's a PITA, and not much benefit over OEM.

And I'm assuming you know a tune will be needed, of course.

Just saw you got the Tomei, so disregard what I said. I know nothing about that one.

I can see you and I are going to disagree a bit.

I verified no re-tune is needed for the ELH install. However, I am heading straight to the tuners shop to have one done.

You're going to disagree with me that I know nothing about the Tomei?

haha... no. I'm texturing walls today and the fumes are getting to my head. I fixed my quote above.

Anyways... it's all friendly for the record.
