    Installing Black Magic Headers on my RXP

    I am going to begin the installation of the Black Magic Headers on RXP this evening. Obviously i have to remove some stuff before i can begin the installation. I thought i would use this thread for pics and updates of the installation. I plan to be testing this weekend so if all goes good i will have installation done this week after work hours.

    pics of BLACK MAGIC setup before installation.

    I will be running stright pipe after mid pipe with no muffler to connect to thru hull. Once the new version of the shorty Gibson is completed it will go in place of the pipe between mid pipe and hull.

    I think it is going to be a little loud at first but hey, here in Texas we like it loud.

    you dont want a video of me installing this thing, believe me.

    Actually it has gone pretty good so far.
    Removed GH box and j pipe.
    Removed stock manifold.
    got all fittings installed on headers and midpipe. Sensor on end pipe.
    Put just enough silicone on header gaskets to hold when install headers. (drying at this moment).
    Cut the heads off 2 of the stock bolts on stock manifold. Put a bolt with no head at each top corner to hang header on for mounting.
    Removed the 2 bolts mounting starter and removed starter. (This will give the room needed to insert some of the bottom bolts on header)

    All of these tips have come per hydrojunkie. Thanks Jason.
