Installation help on the dcsports header

Is the installation is as easy as it sounds or is there some hidden techical issues that werent explained in the installation forum and the main reason y im asking is because the forum said that the stock header will not easily come out of the chassis? true or false anyone?

For those that had installed their own headers on their celi's, can you guys give me an insight on what difficulties i may come upon when taking out the header such as once i unbolt everything and its ready to be taken out, what methods do i need to take the header out from the frame?, from the top or underneath the frame? Anyones previous experience would be great, thanks

you can either unbolt the engine cradle which isnt too hard and go through the bottom, or you can remove the valve cover and go through the top. i went through the top. both are ways are about the same difficulty wise. good luck


a kid told me that celicas handle like crap... i laughed

on hondas is easier because the header are in front..with celica it's in the back..that's y it's so fuckin hard to get it out..

yeah its easy on hondas, i think removing the valve cober is the best way to go, i took the valve cover out wen i install the lift bolts, and yeah it was easy to see the headers then, but then again you have to do it in a garage were shit wont fall in the valve, i think its going to be a lil more harder on my friends rsx, there engines look more tight no space

A buddy of mine is building a kit car in his garage, and has a portable air compressor, and air tools...I'm getting ready to do the header myself, and I think if I leave some liquid wrench on the bolts overnight, and borrow the air compressor (which can also be rented from autozone) and tools...the bolts aren't gonna be too much of a hassle
