Anyone with Kooks headers installed?

For those of you who had the kooks headers installed-

How long did the install take?

Are there any details you wish you knew before install that we should know about before our installs?

Do they hang down a lot lower than the factory ones?

Do you have to have a tune if you go cat less?

Re: Anyone with Kooks headers installed?

Any word on tuning for the 14's?

Doing anything performance related without tuning is just an exercise in sound.

Kooks headers and green cats took my guy about 6 hours. Professional shops might be faster but I trust my installer. You should expect to throw a CEL. Because of the high flow cats, you will get a slow response from the o2 sensors. From what I understand it's no big deal from what I have read. Performance didn't suffer and no knocking. If anything it's smells a little rich now. There are a few work arounds I have read about but haven't tried them yet. A full kooks system sounds amazing. I get compliments all the time.

I am planning on doing kooks headers in about a month once my gt haus has been delivered. I bet your set up sounds good.
