I have been contemplating doing the headers myself also. I have heard of different ways. Like removing the front suspension. I have heard of lifting the motor up and removing the intake. No matter how you do it is going to be fun.

Just a web developer's mistake. There are no auto or manual differences in Kook's or any LT headers. Just go to there web site and you will notice there wont be an Automatic Header option

Go for it. I did mine on jack stands. you will need to remove the batt, starter, and disconnect the steering shaft from the rack. I replaced the motot mounts at that time. So you will have to disconnect the motor one side at a time. Oh yea I did remove the MM adapter plate on the block too. With the hood up you don't have to worry about any intake problems. Good luck

The difference you heard may have been for the old SN95 stangs, I think they had a LT header clearance issue with the Automatic transmission.

My dad and I did mine, it took two days in the garage and we had a car lift.


For the passenger side, we lifted the block with a tranny jack and slide the whole passenger side motor mount out. Removed the manifold, slid the header in and bolted it all back up.


The driver side was pretty simple, just had to drop the steering shaft.


:shrug


I dont know, it was worth it in the end. I say this a lot, but I'm one of the few running Hooker Super Competition long tubes. ;)

What took you so long. 2 day I could have the motor in and out and rebuilt.:hihi::D:nogrinner:shiny::laugh::bigthumbsup:wavey:shigrin

Just kidding Great Job. I wish I had a lift to do mine. I had to do them on jack stands.

Well, next time I'll just call you. Go go gadget buildmotorbot. :scratchchin:happydance:

You have my respect for doing it on jackstands. But being able to stand up and reach for parts has it's limits too. :gringreen:shigrin



I forgot to tighten down the top bolts on the exhaust manifold and ended up smoking the gasket since I just HAD to hear it start up while open header. :nono:


That was a bad project for 6 days at home in the States.

How did it sound with open headers? I thought about it but I had to much else to finish up. I did the headers, motor mounts and the CMDPs and had to load the tune I had for all that. So I had to have it done and back on the ground to load it and start.
