First off id like to say that the header install wasnt as painfuly hard as people make it out to be even though it took a total of 6.5 hours but it was just me working on it. Its a PITA from all the weird angles you have to be in to get out bolts and such, and yea i ended up with some busted knuckles and cuts. Taking the header out was the easiest thing out of the whole thing, if you follow the DCRH install diy then it just comes right out with a wiggle up, down, left, and right. My questions are though, that when installing i took out the heatshield ontop of the stock header(offcourse) and another one that sits near the cabin area, and offcourse this would increase heat but would it increase to the point were it could potentially damage anything? Such as melting wires and such? The 02 sensors look alot closer than with the stock and was also wondering if these were potential damage to the wires there as well. I made sure nothing's touching either btw.
