Talking Top Speed headers & control arm bushings

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.
I have included some pics.
