Pi Motor swapping a friends '98. The BBK long tubes he got have been nothing but a nightmare to install. Also I wasn't there to guide him through some important steps.... now I have r134 all over my garage Lmao. Needless to say its been a long weekend and I barely had any wrench time.

Yeah my first hint was I had to modify the bolts just to get them on the header.......

i install mine on the floor before dropping the car on the motor and it was a pain with the motor out. Now the fun part will be when you go the drop the trans for any reason, i battled for hours trying to get the trans out with out unbolting the headers.

Would it just easier to pull the k-member then install instead of pulling the engine and putting it back in.
