4G69 RRE Header Install

There is no new thread button in the How-To so I will do it here, and it can be moved if need be. Ok so job difficulty I would say about a 2 out of 10. Time well it took me about 30 mins. If you don't know anything I would say maybe 1-2 hours tops.

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.

Step 1. Disconnect Battery negative, and positive making sure they touch nothing. Some will argue this is not needed. However I have been CEL free from the moment I started the car at the end of the job. So it's up to you. I also sprayed everything down RP Maxifilm to loosen it all up.

Step 2. Jack the Car up and place jack stands. I only jacked up the passenger side. Its up to you if you want to raise the whole front end, or not.

Step 3. Disconnect all 4 O2 Sensors. There are two plugs on the driver side, and two on the passenger side. Gray and Black Plugs after you unplug them pull the plastic plug off of the bracket. The driver's side I used a 10mm socket to take the bracket off cause the plugs were stubborn. You can also take pliers now and bend all the wire brackets a little so you can get the wire out easily.

Driver's Side



Passenger




Step 4. Take your 12mm socket, and remove the heat shield bolts. These will not be reused. After there out take your time and wiggle the heat shield out of the engine bay. I say take your time so you don't damage your 02 sensors.




Step 5. This is where I went under the car. I did it in this order to make it easier. Trust me it does but you don't have to do it in this order if you like to make things harder on yourself. First take the 22mm wrench and break your bottom 02 sensors free. Once they are loosened up take your 14mm deep socket, and remove the front collector bolt. Now take your 17mm deep socket and remove the 2 nuts on the sides of the collector. After those are free take the 14mm socket pull down on the collector and remove the bracket bolt.

Step 6. Come back up topside with your 14mm deep socket and remove the I think its 6 nuts that are holding your manifold on the block. Once those are off simply pull your OEM manifold out of the engine bay. While your doing this please feel free to notice how much heavier it is than the RRE.



Step 7. Clean the exhaust ports good with carburetor cleaner, The OEM Gasket's also. Make sure you clean them all very well. Now that it is all clean take your Gasket, and coat around the exhaust port holes with copper gasket. On both sides of the gasket slide it on the bolts. Line the header up on the bolts and push it on. ( I had to bore one of the holes with a drill cause it was a little off. Not sure if anyone else had too.) Place the washer's and bolts back on and tighten them down. I don't know spec's but I tightened nice and tight.




Step 8. Climb under the car. First put the bracket bolt in and tighten it down. Same thing for the gasket here coat both sides in copper gasket around the hole. It doesn't take a whole lot. Put in the new bolts RRE supplied so the nut will be on the bottom. Line up the collector and push it up to meet the header. Twist the nuts on, and tighten down with your 14mm deep socket. Again I tightened until I felt comfortable.





Step 9. Take the bottom 2 O2 sensor's (black wire) put copper gasket around the thread careful not to get any on the sensor. Screw them into the Spacer's provided by RRE. I used channel lock's and the 22mm wrench to tighten them into the spacer. Now put some copper gasket on the thread of the spacer's and screw them back into the collector. Take your 22 mm wrench and tighten them in. It doesn't take much to tighten them. Same for the upper sensor's(gray wire). Re run your O2 wires through the bracket's and squeeze them closed again. Now plug your sensor's back in black to black gray to gray. Don't forget to put the plastic plug back on the bracket.

Step 10. reconnect battery check your engine bay make sure nothing is going to cause any trouble ie items left behind. Put the key in and start the car. Listen for exhaust leak's. Check for CEL which if you disconnected the battery you shouldn't have. If you used carb cleaner you can watch the small flame come out of you exhaust if your quick enough.


The header, and Copper gasket are gonna smoke they are supposed to it's ok. The copper gasket is gonna burn and it is gonna stink for a few days. It will go away eventually. Enjoy your sound, and power.

I have noticed she deff has a lil something extra in the lower power band. Not much but a little bit. The engine even seems to be a lil stiffer under tq. Maybe its my imagination maybe its the thickness of the steel who knows. Anyone else notice this? The real fun is in MIVEC you deff feel it there. Pulls like a freight train its amazing. If your on it good you can even get a little torque steer when MIVEC hits.

That's all any other question's PM me

When I did it I actually took a beer out with me. However I never got a chance to crack it, and by the time I was done it was still cold. So after a job well done I sat back and enjoyed. Honestly the longest part was cleaning

One thing I wanted to add. Just like painting Surface prep is very important. Remember you are trying to mate two objects of your engine together. The cleaner, and smoother the surface the better the coupling. You don't want any space for air to leak.

I used TB Cleaner worked like a charm

where did you get copper gasket and about how much was it, and i was doing the install tonight and it didn't go so great lol, bolts were too big i bought and the left side 02 sensor wouldn't come out no matter what, eventally got pretty rounded.. sigh anyways im guna try at it again monday or tomorow night hoping 11mm bolts will be small enough and i'll probably take my header to orileys and see if they can get it off there

Great write up. gonna come in handy. although aside from the 02 sensors it seems literally bolt on and bam. instant (expensive) power. and im curious as to the copper gasket and price as well.

yeah lot of rusty ass bolts, but its pretty easy if it wasn't for the 02 sensors, i'm hoping orileys can get it off, the tool from autozone failed me i bought the things in there i even had it soaked in wd40

yeah reading (and knowing my car is technically 3 yrs old (08)) makes me wanna go out now and crack the corrosion just to make sure in a few months when i get my headers it wont be nearly as hard to get them off.

no leaks, and as long as you have the spacers in the o2 sensors on the downpipe you wont get a CEL.

the spacers should come with the header if the seller included them.

no, if the header doesn't come with the spacers you can order them from RRE for like 18 bux. you can still install the header without the spacers until you get them but you may/will throw a CEL.
