I have to install these headers on a motor for a friend.I told him they were a POS design,but he wants to use them anyway.The problem I am having is getting the up pipe to the turbo in there.IT HITS EVERYTHING!I can't turn it.Looks to me like taking the starter off would help,but then I couldnt put it back.I even took off the pass side header to make some room still no help.If I take the bolts out of the motor mounts I,ll never get them back in.Any of you that have done this before help me please.
 
I had a set of those from the early 90's. They are junk by todays standards. I would tell him that it will make the car very lazy for street driving. Also he'll keep getting a trouble code for the o2 circuit,because of the larger diameter pipes it takes longer for the sensor to reach operating temp. Only way to cure that is a heated o2 sensor.
BACK to the problem at hand. If I remember you have to have the car up in the air higher than a regular floor jack can get it. DO you have access to a hoist? Good luck and try your best to talk him out of them.
 
Thanks.I figured it out and got it in there.Now the starter wont turn over from the keyswitch but I can start it from the posts on the starter.
