M4 Header Install

Well, had a couple free hours today so decided to see what I could get done.

Stock system was fairly easy to remove, just wish I had swivel tools for those manifold bolts.

Question...for those that re-used your gaskets, is there any reason to pull them out or just leave them where they are.

I left my stock gaskets right where they were, had a bit of a hassle getting the primary pipes lined up properly. Had a bit of a gap on the #3 pipe but as I tightened them down equally it seemed to correct itself. Putting some miles on the new system and will check everything again like a first service type deal.

Thanks Chris. Yes, if I remember right, it said something about doing a torque check at about 5k miles.

No problem, it was mentioned before but watch your lower right side plastic being too close / touching the header. Already made that mistake and melted a tiny bit of it, lesson learned.

I got the stock headers off tonight and was wondering about the gaskets too. I tried using a pick to get one off and ended up scratching the **** out of it. Hopefully it's nothing some horsepower stickers can't fix.

Oh and that header drop is a doozy. Luckily I caught it before waking everyone. Lay something pillowy soft underneath if you want to avoid damaging your donation to waste management!

Yeah, I was going to pull them out too, but they seemed pretty well seated in there.

I hope to get the m4 bolted up today.

Finding time during the week to do this has been difficult, to say the least.

Yesterday just had an hour before work, so I removed the SET and cables. That was a bit tricky. Also got the ECU sent off to Dano.

I still need to remove my PCV and Pair valve and install block off plates. All in all, it's been fun to work on, I just hope it runs when I get done!

No, unless you zero out the PCV tables it would over-ride dani's fueling, and I trust his fueling to be better than the stock pcv fueling map.

Haha, I'm hoping for the same.

I kind of wish I had Dano disable the PAIR system and O2 sensor though for the weight savings and since I don't commute on it anyway. In fact, it's been sitting on the same tank of gas for the past 2 months. Should be no big deal for the gas, right?

If you're planning on getting a dyno tune later, you can unplug it at the injectors and leave it there until they need it to perfect the fueling. (This is for Trizman above)
