Header

I just purchased a header for my 92 YJ I was just wondering if anyone knows if most headers will mount straight onto the existing exhaust pipes or will I have to replace the whole system. Thanks for the help.

Should bolt right up.

The pipe and header have some flexibility in relation to mounting.

There are two bolts with springs and nuts that connect the header to the exhaust, start spraying your PB blaster, break free or WD 40 on them days in advance, they rust like hell and may need to be cut off if you can't get them off. You can buy a replacement set (usually universal) from most parts houses.

This spring system allows the engine to move around a little and the exhaust can move around a little on its own rubber mounts.

A buddy took his Samurai to a (shitty) exhaust place and they welded the header to the exhaust and the first off road trip the two separated violently. He had to have a new "articulating" connection made similar to what I described above.

Thank you Dj I'll start spraying them today. My header won't be in for a few days so hopefully they'll be loose enough to remove by then.
