"USE MORE red silicone than you would ever think would be needed !!!!!!!!! I'm used to Chevy V8's and had an intake leak from using a normal amount of silicone -- check length of factory bolts- mine only caught three threads--do a mock up install and check that the shims aren't to long- I had to shorten some --BUT-- they are a nice set of headers MADE IN USA" posted by: island boy on February 28, 2008
