I was finally able to find a decently priced set of BBK long tube headers and Pypes shorty h pipe. I've been looking into the install for quite some time now, and was just looking for any more tips from people with experience with BBK LT headers.
I'll be using this article as a guide: http://www.mikefordmustang.com/writeups/ltsv8/long-tube-install-mustang-gt.php
I'll have an afternoon followed by 2 full days off in order to get them installed, along with a friend to lend a hand for at least one full day.
I've read up as much as I can find on BBK headers. They shouldn't have too many fitment issues compared to some of the other long tube header brands out there, and they are not slip fit. I've read articles on how the oil dip stick tube will need to be bent, and others saying it is not necessary. This may be a year model difference, but I'm putting these on a 2003 GT coupe. Hopefully that'll give me more room to work with.
The install itself looks like installing lowering springs (plenty of exp with that), but taking it a step further and dropping the k member.
TL;DR - Any tips and tricks for installing BBK long tube headers? Thanks!!
