    He hooked me up for 400 bones. SHit I was happy cause online they were over 500 w/out weld job. TACOROCK is a good guy. He walked me through the removal and install process. It helped cause I just went through replacing my gaskets. Apparently stock gaskets don't work with New Headers. Saw lots of carbon build up on the gaskets and manifold. This explained the shuttering sound or lawnmower sound that was annoying me., No biggie. JBA will send you replacement Gaskets for $25.00 plus shipping, and I will tell you out the box all hope was restored. After wrenching in to that motor for a while and torqing some other bolts, my truck is sounding sweet. The gaskets steped me up a knotch big time. But I would not have been able to knock that out if T-Rock Just handed those Headers over. His free time became my learning time.

    Now I'm looking at installing URD short shifter. What you think?:rolleyes:

    wtf?? So, i have to buy the gaskets separately??? About the urd shifter......I say go for it....Either way, if you want it, the odds are that you're eventually gonna get your hands on it one way or another. Might as well get it over with...(that's how mods are) lol Mods are never-ending.....

    Nah,,,

    I could have traded gaskets but mine looked fine at the time. But down the line I guess the stock gaskets were to thin to handle the heat kept in by the headers. Remember I bought these Headers used.

    As for the Shifter, you are correct my friend,,, LOL!
