I was wondering which header is better the mopar or the dc sports? I know they're the known two or if there's any other company that supplies them and are they hard to put it? It looks kinda crowded.

No thats the only 2. Everyone is using mopar, so they are your best bet!

DC Sports makes the header for themselves and for Mopar. So they are really the same header.

So it appears that just which ever one you can get at the best price will do just fine.:naughty:

its about 2-4 hour job, depends on your experience, i used a lift, up and down, lol, some bolts are eaiser to get, but first you un unhook the sensor, then the exhaust, then unbolt the manifold cover, then start on the manifild it self. 5 bolts on the top, 3 on the bottem, and it has 2 studs, when its completely off and your ready to put the header on, re-use the stock metal manifold gasket if you want, because the header doesnt come with on, then recap what you done, after putting the header on make sure you have a torque wrench, and have it set for 55lbs, and then once you tighted all the bolts and studs, reconnect everything back together and then you should be golden

Damn there was a lot of "and then"s in that, sorry i dont have photos of a step by step, someone should be able to provide with that, i hope it helped G!

Has anyone here done a before and after dyno for just installing the header? Also, was there any affect on the AFR with out tuning the ecm for the change?

Is it louder with just a header on?... I'm thinking although I bought one of those headers for $140 I am going to hold off until I have the Cat-Back too, do it all at once.
