    I am thinking about buying a set of the Long Tube headers from Doug Thorley. The ad says "welding require"? I am just wondering how hard they are to install. I know several of ya'll are running them. Whatcha think?

    long tube headers dont require any welding or cutting because they are a direct replacement for your factory manifolds. However, short tube headers require cutting because you need to re-use your factory catalytic converters
