    No, they bolt right up. It's just a pain, not much room to work.

      I'm replacing the clutch, engine oil pan gasket, and the rack & pinion so i'm going to just pull the engine and trans out. That's why i'm doing the exhaust now. I'm hoping the car will sound better once the msds headers, and weapon-r intake are on. I went with clutchnet stage 1 and aluminum flywheel, so i'm hoping everything gets better after this.

          I just ordered the full MSDS kit with the headers, y-pipe, MIL eliminators, gaskets, ect. I also found out from Marty at MSDS that the reason OBX headers are not available anywhere now is because MSDS just won a lawsuit against them for copying their design. Sounds like MSDS is going to be pretty much the only option for contour svt now.

Some people will argue MSDS is better, I say if you're worried about rust; go OBX, if you're going to coat them or are not too worried about rust; it's your choice. If your turbo'd and the MSDS ones really are half an inch wider in diameter, you'll want MSDS. A 3.25 inch outlet should be able to max out around 425 hp before it starts to restrict it.
            Are you referring to the outlet of the y-pipe?
