Default HELP INSTALLING BBK SHORT HEADERS FOR A GT 03

Hello guys, I need some help here, my BBK short headers (I went with short because my GT 03 its an automatic) just arrived, the problem is that I dont know how to install them, I didnt saw any instructions of how to install in the box, the other thing is that my Magnaflow Magnapacks arrived here too, I would like to install everything tomorrow, someone here has some instructions or diagrams of how to install both things, do I need an adapter or some extra stuff?

Hope you can help me with this, thanks guys!

headers are a huge job. the catback should be easy enough backyard mechanic. the headers involve lifting the car and taking apart a large portion of the engine bay on top. IMO i think you should pay to put the headers on and buy new header bolts also cuz you dont want those bolts coming loose ever.

Headers are a complete bitch... shortys can supposively be done without dropping the kmember; even though I dont see how its possible after installing my long tubes. You should also get some percys gaskets for the headers.

Thanks guys, I will take care of all this, new header bolts? I think they came in the box, what are the possibilities of having problems with my headers and exhaust if I dont use new bolts¡?

hey Cwalga, what are percys gaskets?!

DEFINITELY get Percy's header gaskets and Stage 8 locking header bolts. I got both from Jeg's.

Thanks Code, should I do that while I install them or can I add that later? because to be honest with you, I dont think I can find those things around here, I will have to order them for sure, any reccomendation about what to do?!

Wait and do it all at once. This job is a PITA and you only want to mess with it once.

I will talk with the mechanics that are going to do this tomorrow, they are going to install everything at a BMW shop, those guys have awesome skills, maybe they know what to do already and I´m just assuming things before even talking with them, thanks Code! I really apreciate your help a lot! ^^
