Default Just purchased............

I just purchased the COBB coated Equal Length headers and High flow Cat. I called and talked to Justin, who was very helpfull, and ordered them. They should be here Friday. So hopefully I will be installing these over the weekend.

I will take some pics of the install and put them up..
I just had to tell someone.

Steven

Install questions:

Any suggestions on the install. I see the torque specs for the header bolts are 22.4 +/- 3.6 ft/lbs (COBB). I also know to use a floor jack to catch the headers, and raise the new headers if doing by self. Also to use ramps.
What type of anti-seize would you all recomend? Do I need to buy a new doughnut gasket for the cat-header conection? My car has 28k miles. any input is appreciated.
Thanks

Well Justin at COBB told me that they have the Coated headers and cat in stock, and it should ship out today, but most likely tomorrow morning. I called to make sure they were in stock before i ordered.

This is not true. Erroneous claims like this are how internet rumours get spread and why a lot of people claim that Cobb just renames ALL their parts.

Stromung is the manufacturer of Cobb's exhaust, but the designs are different. They have an agreement that Stromung does not sell the Cobb spec parts under their name. Cobb designed their own exhaust and actually helped Stromung with the development of the XA exhaust. I personally have the Stromung because I wanted the twin tip, and Cobb doesn't do the twin tip. The two are obviously of equal quality

Cobb's cams are manufactured by Web, but they are Cobb's specs. Web will sell you EJ25 cams directly, but they are not the Cobb grind. That too is proprietary.

The only parts Cobb has ever just rebranded are Cusco sway bars and ACT clutches. Otherwise, Cobb parts you buy from Cobb are designed by Cobb. They put a lot of time into their R&D a we should give credit where credit is due..

If you are real worried do a search in www.wrxforum.com 's RS/TS forum. I wrote a step by step install in one of the real long header threads from when the headers first came out. The only real trick is to use your jack to hold the cat end up while you unbolt the engine end. And have a 6" extension for your socket so you can reach all the bolts. I reused the engine gaskets, but replaced my donut midpipe gasket. This is also what Cobb suggests...
