    Is your exhaust now connecting to your header/cat? If so then you should be able to install one no problem. Just have to extend your o2 wiring. Might even throw a cel. Sound like a waste just for sound. But goodluck =)

    if you don't know how to do it head down to autozone and pick up a Hanes, it has in depth details on how to take it off. its only 20 bucks and it has all the torque numbers and some stuff you might not know you have to do to get it off.

    Replacing the exhaust manifold on the y7 is a major pain in the ass. The catalytic converter is integrated, therefore requiring that you buy a catalytic converter as well to accompany your replacement header and you'll have to extend the o2 sensor wires and weld in the new cat.

    I did it to my car replacing my y7 manifold, it was so not worth the time/money/etc to fix the problem. If I could go back I'd take my $400 back and just bondo the crack.

    Why weld in a catalytic converter when you can just buy an ex catalytic converter from say, mangnaflow with ex a-pipe and be done with it. Better flowing system, all bolt on

    I bought an EX header, couldn't find a used EX cat and wasn't sure I wanted a used cat anyway.

    Welding on a cat doesn't cost much, $30 or so at my local muffler shop. Takes 10 minutes, if that. I got a converter from summit racing for ~$110 shipped.

    first of all, its header not header(s). secondly, you live in long beach, so any no brand header will be illegal. unless its a DC brand, which will cost you about $400, and if you are interested just for the sound, then it might not be worth it.
