Looked like the real deal to me. They will work for all years, but if you have an external EGR you would have to get a boss welded onto them. These thing DO NOT turn up very often, so if your looking for em act quick.
Hey guys, what do I need to do to weld a egr bung on the headers? Do I need to cut off the one from the stockers and weld it onto the new headers? Would this be a fairly simple task if I had access to a welder? I know somebody who can weld.
Best thing to do is pull the stock one, mock up a jig that duplicates the position of the EGR bung, and then find a competent welder who can put it all together. I ended up getting it done at a metal fabrication/welding shop, but my old man had it ready to go. All they had to do was weld it up. You will need a piece of pipe to go between the header and EGR bung and this is the tricky part. It ends up getting welded on at a real odd angle. Lots of trial and error with the jig until you get the end of the pipe that mates to the header shaped right.
Write-up?! You mean you want me to install these myself?
98X50, thanks for the info. You wouldn't happen to have a pic of yours would you?
I plan on having the headers ceramic coated as well. So, my biggest concern is that I will most likely be without my daily driver for a couple of weeks, while this gets done. I'll need to take off the stockers, weld a bung on the fms headers, then send them out to get coated and sent back, and then have them installed or tackle the job myself. I guess I could always walk to work. :roll:
