    Opinion on Bimmebrakes gen3 headers?

    Yea or nay on these? Experience? Figure I'll do headers while I manual swap.

    YES.

    I beta tested the Gen3's... LOVED THEM. Fit was amazing. Sound was even better!

    I have the gen 1 headers and I love them. I can only imagine the gen 3 ones are better.

    Will you be doing the install?

    My friend ordered these. Fitment and finish was great, sound was awesome. They were a PITA to install. Being almost equal length primaries, it made it really difficult to bolt down on 3,4,5 cyl exhaust ports. We just yanked the motor, attached the headers, and popped it back in. It was the easiest way to do. Install was probably 4.5 hours?

    Lol. Yank motor...install headers. I wish I would have done that. Takes about 8-9 hrs taking your time the standard (motor stays in car way). I love mine. Power is great.

    Because like your "manual swap," are you going to do it or just make one-hundred threads about it?
