Default Sikky header installed

Here are the few pics and videos as tonite, buddy installed in San Diego .. will post more good info later. no need to replace any o2 sensor, sikky dipstick still need some be modified to fit bended alittle, instruction of the o2 sensor simulater was good but the picture was wrong. Double up on the oem gasket and the one Sikky provide. I think the reason some of the installer stripped those sensors because they didnt clean the thread sensor on the header. Will give you guys more info about Header and where to get install ... Oh yeah dont use the sikky header screws that came with . Use the Oem screws of the header they are lock screws.

Hi Tin, it gives the exhaust more deep tone and aggressive.

Nice! I'm a getting mine installed in 3 weeks!

Stupid question: does the Sikky o2 sensor simulator replace the eom o2 sensor or do you need both?
