Im surprised you had such a time with the install though. Ive done my share of header installs and for me installing the BBK longtubes and catted X on my v6 was the easiest installation Ive ever done.I dont see the shorties being any more difficult, or are they ?
Randy, these things SUCK. Based on a lot of feedback and my own experiences on long tubes on a V8, it seems like that long tubes on the V6 are a bit easier because of clearance and the length of the tube allows you to use it as a lever. Easy. But long tubes on the V8 are a pain because they're so heavy (comparatively) that they're difficult to keep in place. But short tubes are hard on the 6 because it's a funny reach. But short tubes on the 8 are easier because of clearances and the easier reach involved with the spaces presented. I don't know...
