    you dont need new sensors just reuse the old ones. unless they are bad and throwing codes

    ok nvm your looking long tube since you mentioned the o2 sensor. ya the 02 sensor does something but it does not replace the factory sensors. it work with them to "fool" the computer

    if you go to a shop they will say anything and everything to sell you more than you really need. I am sure that there are a few write ups here on the forum for the install and I think they reused the stock sensors. Personally its a little time consuming but if you could install the headers yourself that would be the way to go...just make sure you get all new gaskets for a leak free exhaust

    tools..do you have a basic socket set? I am pretty sure thats all you need. I have a 2.7 and did the header install and my tool box is a 24 socket wrench set, it had everything I needed.

    And patience. Can't be near as hard as LS1 headers. Takes forever, like a jigsaw puzzle.

    If you have not done this before find someone that has some mechnical know how to help. You will save a ton of money. But, I suggest to read and study your arse off first before you get started so you know all the pieces that are in play here.

    then PM the members from those links and ask them what muffler/resonators they are using because that will illiminate alot of the rasp

    you don't have to replace anything.... you are doing a direct swap.... you will need a o2 simulator that urd sells for a special price with a purchase of headers. give gadget a call and he will get you set up. the sound is perfect in my opinion. :) good luck with your purchase.
