If you have the very end of the plug wire touching slightly just trim it back a hair with a razor blade. They're extremely thick right there & often times all header brands are close there. There's not much you can do when the flange and head located the primary tubes next to the spark plugs.


Don't forget the headers included a new steering bolt that will give you extra clearance at the steering!!

Thanks for the info! I will take care of it this weekend.

Other than that I have no complaints and my car sounds like it should now!

I would like to see an actual picture of where exactly the new provided shaft bolt goes. I am assuming it replaces the bottom bolt of the shaft connection, although a simple picture would be great! Stock and the TSP provided bolt appear pretty much the same size to me.
