Default Looking for Header install...

I have been searching for LT header install thread. I saw it somewhere before. He was talking about not having to raise the engine or drop the K member. I know this would be a pain, but i would like to try. I have headers that have been sitting in my room for over a year now and i would like to install them. This is for a 97 GT 5-speed.

You would have to raise motor or drop k. This job is not for the just anybody. Its a rough one. Very doable. But you'll hate life in the process. There is just no room. Period. Tight fit. Bolts hard to get to. Have to keep gasket positioned right. Depending on the brand....after installed you have to loosen or pull a header to remove trans/clutch. Headers will leak. So have to be retightened later on. I purchased so locking header bolts. Even with a spacey tubular k member I couldn't fit all of the locks.
