Again - I have 40K all weather mi (sees plenty of salt) on a inexpensive DEI TI wrapped GT-Spec header. The wrap is just beginning to warrant replacement. I plan to do i this year. If I have to replace the header to, I'll post up. Monetarily it It still won't have been a poor choice even with replacement cost. Admittedly Id still rather have a wrapped KB header. This car is too old for the investment. Perhaps next one - which I am beginning to plan for.
Anyway I loosen my filter, and make a hole in the bottom to let it drain before removal. Cant do this outside when it's windy (happily don't have to anymore). I have done it outside when it was windy with cardboard around the upwind front side of the car.
Would this work with a KB:
* Loosen the filter.
* Drive a screw into the bottom of the filter
* Get a funnel fastened under it - whatever it takes, hose wire ect.
* Pull the screw and drain
