    Is there a cheat code to installing the headers

    Im getting ready to install my headers after replacing the port gaskets. I fooled with for a couple minutes before i started getting a little frustrated. Is it necessary to remove the O2 sensor to reinstall? I didnt remove when i pulled the headers off. Any tricks to the trade? Start with the rear then front visa versa?

    Have to be careful with headers. I have heard of a few people doing things out of order and ending up with "stress" on the parts, leading to things breaking down the road as it shakes around. The straps holding the muffler up can snap easily, as well as the bolts on the motor holding the headers on (which is not fun to fix). I'm no good for a "step by step" process, but the main idea is to "loose fit" the exhaust system, starting with the headers, and working back to muffler. Then, secure the muffler first with the complete exhaust in place, then tighten down the other bolts so less pressure is "pulling" on the headers.
