no, the spacers restrict the amount of exhaust flow to the o2 sensors. without them the o2s get a lot more gases than the stock header and will throw a code.

Tools needed:
Ratchet
10mm deep, & short (Driver side O2 mounting bracket)
12mm deep, & short (Heat Shield)
14mm deep, & short (2 collector bolts, mounting bracket, Exhaust port bolts)
17mm deep (2 of the collector bolts)
14mm wrench (One of the exhaust port bolts you will see why)
22mm wrench (O2 Sensors)
Pliers or Channel locks (Channel lock preferred for mounting Sensor into Spacer)
Bore drill bit (One of the holes on the header wasn't lined up quite right)
Copper Gasket

Thats it for tools needed. More to follow when I upload the pics. This really is a simple task, once you see that you will realize it's a waste of money to pay for this job to be done for you.
Hey man thx for all the info, unfortunatly, my freeking printers on the fritz so I just got done writing all this shit down, hope this will help my shop when I get mine, soon I hope-- CHOP

Yes the spacers go on the bottom. The o2 sensors are a pain in the butt to get off to ha i installed spacers in mine a few weeks ago and so far just a code every now and then. Def worth the headache for the install

Does anyone have any experience using a straight pipe after the header?

On my last domestic build we used electric cut out valves on the exhaust to completely bypass the cats and muffler, hella loud but no restriction, Im wondering if that might be a future possibility .....

I used these on the V8 Stang..

http://www.summitracing.com/parts/qtp-qtec30/overview/

I would really like to ponder this idea with some careful group consideration...

Hey Guys!

Hey whats up. This is my first post on this forum, so I want to say hello first. But to the point, I just purchased the OBX header for the 2008 GS. The upgrade guide on here says to coat and wrap it? I'm assuming the wrap part is thermal tape, but what am I coating it in? Sorry for the ignorance, this is my first time ever trying anything more extensive than putting in new headlight bulbs!

Does everything in this guide pertain to the OBX header as well? Especially about using the spacers to not get the CEL?

I believe OBX has to be welded to the remainder of your exhaust. But for the most part it's the same concept. SES light is tricky on our cars and you will see it pop on occasionally even with spacers on.

So, real quiock thread revival... I only got the headers and spacers from RRE. I assume this means I can use the stock gaskets and bolts.. right? I'm only concerned about the ones that bolt the headers to the collector.

WD-40 makes a HELL of a difference.. From having two people trying to crank off the O2 sensors to having one do it with little effort. Heat shield is off and I cracked all the bolts before tightening them back down. Didn't have a jack for the car so I'm waiting until this afternoon when I get home.

if youre installing new headers, why not spend the 20-30 bucks to get new header gaskets? I mean it seems foolish not too, no matter how little miles you have, you just might as well...

I reused my stock one because RRE said it's better than any other aftermarket gasket.

I just finished installing mine, I dont think it leaks or nothing. I tried to do as legit as I could. Lossened all the nuts from outside in. 1/4 turn in a sequence. Same as snugging it I went from inside in , so start at the middle bottom stud and worked my way out . The torque on them suppose to be 36ft-lbs. So I started at 16ft-lbs and went thru the sequence 3time (2 is good enough) , then to 26ft-lbs ,then 36ft-lbs.

Honestly it took me fucking 1 hour to pull 2 top 02 sensors of. I soaked every bolt in wd 40 over night after I ran the engine for a bit burned all the rust of, same thing in the morning. I didn't touch 02s with wd 40 tho cuz I thought your not suppose to cuz u tuning risk of getting some on the element.

2019 Update- RRE Header Install How-To Guide

Did my RRE header install this weekend with the help of this guide. Figured I'd throw my 2 cents on here for anyone in 2019+ that does this mod. Our cars are starting to age so a lot of these guides have to be approached differently (can't re-use the same stock parts, have to pay special attention to rust, etc.) Also- I converted the original how-to post into a step-by-step guide in PDF format so that I could print it out in a clean format. I found this very useful to have in the garage with my while I was doing the install; it is attached to this post in case anyone else wants it too.

-Save yourself some time and pick up three 3/8"-16 hex bolts (1.5-2" long) with matching nuts & washers from Home Depot. These bolts will replace your stock exhaust collector bolts! Our cars are starting to get old... in 2019+ there is no way you'll be able to re-use your collector bolts. I tried restoring mine for re-use, but ended up spending 30 mins in Home Depot finding the matching bolts I just referenced.

-Buy new upper/lower gaskets! I saw that both RRE and this guide recommended keeping the stock ones, but I ordered new ones anyway... and I'm glad I did! My stock gaskets were definitely showing their age and I wouldn't have felt comfortable re-using them, even after a thorough cleaning.

-Purchase some BreakFree. This works better than WD-40 for loosening up rusted bolts/nuts IMO.

-Make sure you torque the engine-header nuts, exhaust-header bolts, and O2 sensors to the proper spec! Not sure why no one else mentioned this on this thread. My dad told me this is especially important for the engine-header nuts. Here goes the torque specs: Torque on engine-header nuts is 36ft-lbs. Torque on O2 sensors is 33ft-lbs. Torque on the exhaust-header bolts is 33ft-lbs.
