: Headers Install Tips or Help

04-23-13, 08:58 PM
Newbie here looking for tips on installing headers on a 2012 V Wagon A6. I've got a set of Kooks / Cat X-Pipe on the way that I'll install with the stock exhaust. After much research here, I also ordered new GM exhaust manifold gaskets and will use those. Any other tips you can share to ease the install or other items to look after while doing it would be greatly appreciated. Specifically, I'm wondering about; 1- use anti-seize on header bolts, 2- change plugs and anti-seize on those as well, 3- making sure system stays "tight" after install, etc., etc.
