This DIY is for the aftermarket i4 header installation.

Here we go.


1st: Disconnect the battery. The ECU will be reset once you finish the install and hook the battery back up.

5th: Start removing the 9 nuts that hold the header in place. Its a pain to get to the one nut on the far left. Keep trying. Dont forget, you have 2 nuts at the bottom to remove.
After you finish, you should have this.

10th: I had trouble with this one. The headers that I got didnt come with the screws for some reason. The screws on the OEM header cant be removed. Only the 2 nuts can be.
