BBK Shorty headers 2012 V6

I know there are threads on this. I already know the possible HP gains, install stories ( I will have mine installed by my dealer if I get them already spoke to them)

The folks that have these on their 2011-2014 V6:

any issues with temp running hot?

Check engine lights?

Running too rich or lean?

thank you. I really want to get these and run them with stock exhaust set up so far.

I checked afrs after the shorties were installed and I was slightly lean so more fuel had to be added.

I got ceramics and pretty sure my temps dropped a little, but all I have to go by is how quickly I noticed idle temps drop after moving and that they don't go as high or as fast, so the fan isn't kicking on as much.

I am tuned but 100% sure you won't get a cel by just installing them.

I ran mine for about 2 weeks without a tune no problem. As for any other things, only thing I have noticed was more power.

Especially down low where you need it.
