    Tomei header/up pipe

    Hey everyone,

    Anyone have any trouble putting these is? I installed mine yesterday. Man was it a PITA, I had to widen one of the holes on the turbo to connect the up pipe. And wrapping the header was a B****. But after a little bit of TLC i was done. in love with the gains and sound.

    I have installed mine twice with no problem. You could have a bent stud or the upipe flange might have not been welded on 100% striaght.

    UEL and wrapped it with the cheap wrap that came with it the first time and it smoked like hell and smelled really bad the first time I cranked the car up and it started to fall off after about a year. I took it back off and used the titanium exhaust wrap and used the heat wrap spray and it is way better.

    I got UEL too. I could tell that stuff was crap man. Just putting on tight it would tear. I ordered some of the same stuff I wrapped my DP with and will swap it out one day when I'm not lazy.
