You may be able to torque a couple of bolts, but most will have to be tightened with wrench. You also might find that the O2 bung on the passenger side is pointing straight up, bending the heat shield might give clearence, or like me you will need to have a new bung welded in the right location. One bolt hole on the passenger side header may need to be oblonged to use a header bolt, or just leave it out. A metal cutting blade, bi-metal I believe is what you'll need. Good luck and have fun!!!

Well it is a great performing product, probably the best performing header we have now. BUT the fitment issues SUCK, then again coated headers and y-pipe for less then $600 shipped makes up for the fitment issues...less then half the price of Dynatechs, and perform better.

Get it welded so that it's pointed more towards the trans/engine.

Yes but you might want to test fit it first to get it in the right spot.
