Top Speed headers & control arm bushings
 
6 Attachment(s)
Well I thought I would share my header install , control arm & bushing install with the fanatics. So lets start with the headers. I pulled out the old ones & that was pretty straight foward. Its is a bit cramped but I figured it would be.
I ordered all 24 exhaust posts & nuts for my headers. Put them on cinched em up & there you go. I also opted to install a ansa muffler with dtm tips for sound & eye appeal. That really opened her up.Then I also installed new control arms & bushings from top speed. That to was not difficult & these bushings feel nice & tight. So over all I am pleased with both. Having the new exhaust compliments the Simoto carbon intake. Together it has really improved the overall throttle response. :woot:
I have included some pics.

whats with the pic dates?

those are from top speed pro 1 performance. I got them from delubosparts e-bay store. I think they ran me just under $300. My Camera puts some wack date on there if I dont program the date. I have learned that the hard way. Oh well , I have done all this in the last week or so. Lots of FUN!

you replaced all the studs?

pyro623 06-11-2009 03:25 PM

Yes I replaced all of them with brand new ones. I bought all 24. The oem headers only use 8 studs & bolts on each header.
