Did you install your LTs yourself? Any advice? Will I have to take the steering shaft off? I'm gonna take the spark plugs out but I'd like to know what else to expect beforehand...

I will def post pics and a video. I plan of getting dynoed after so I will post a video of that also. I don't know the weight of the OEM manifolds. I did a Google search and didn't come up with a thing. I'll tell you in a week and a half if you can wait that long...haha!!

Yes, I installed mine. You shouldn't need to take steering shaft off, there's plenty of room. I didn't even take the sparkplugs out. Before you start, make sure you remember to disconnect the battery. The bolts closest to the firewall on both sides are a pain when you go to torque them down. The biggest possible problem is going to be removing the O2 sensors from the stock exhaust without messing up the treads. I used a freeze spray I got from a mechanic friend of mine and was thankful that all 4 came out ok. Other than that, it's pretty easy.

I see a lot of people going with the OBX headers all of the sudden. If you don't mind me asking, how much did you pay for them, and where did you get them?

Thanks for the info. I'm looking forward to the install. I got a buddy who's gonna swing by and give me a hand. I'm gonna give myself a good amount of time just in case. We'll see!!
