Well I finally got to install my TOG headers today. Fit great and only took about 3hrs and a GP trans tube and stick to install. The muffler shop will weld the down tube to the converter so I can drive it. Then I'll find out if it was worth the time & money.

I work at a shop and installed them myself. Had a friend at a muffler shop modify the front of the converter for a flange and uses a big doughnut to seal against the tog header insted of the supplied flex pipe. And uses the spring loaded bolts to conpensate for engine movement. I figure its easier to replace a $2.00 doughnut then replace the flex pipe when it splits. Now the car screams. From a roll at 25 mph it just smokes the tires. With the shift kit it scratches the tires on 1-2 shift. Next is the 3.25 pulley and 1.8 rockers.

Don't foreget to get a trans dipstick and tube from a 98 gtp. Our stock one will not clear. The dipstick tube # 12562853, & Trans fluid level indicator# 12556460. The dealer had to order the 2 parts and took 3 days from Kentucky.

Glad to hear that the GTP dipstick tube trick worked out for you guys! It took me several weeks to figure this out two years ago...

p.*. - INTENSE Rocker Arms showed a real gain of 22WHP on a mildly modified GTP in last month'* issue of High Performance Pontiac magazine.
