Installation Instructions
Thank you for making HOOKER HEADERS your choice in a high-performance exhaust system. Extensive dyno/track testing has
enabled HOOKER to offer the most advanced design in exhaust systems. The installation, while not complex, will take a certain
amount of time. However, the additional horsepower and improved performance will more than justify your efforts. Proper installation
and maintenance will ensure long life and maximum performance from your HOOKER HEADER exhaust system.
BEFORE STARTING:
Your vehicle must be raised a minimum of 36 inches. A floor hoist is ideal. If no hoist is available, we strongly urge the use of axle
stands as a safety measure. Please read these instructions in their entirety before attempting installation.
CAUTION! WORK ONLY ON A LEVEL SURFACE. USE JACKS /JACK STANDS OF SUFFICIENT CAPACITY TO LIFT AND
SUPPORT YOUR VEHICLE. NEVER WORK UNDER A VEHICLE SUPPORTED BY A FLOOR OR BUMPER JACK.

INSTALLATION:

3.
Apply penetrating oil to all existing exhaust manifold/header fasteners and let sit for 15 minutes.
4.
Disconnect and remove the oxygen sensors from the exhaust manifolds/headers.
5.
Remove the spark plug wires, spark plugs and engine oil dipstick tube.
6.
Remove all the fasteners attaching the exhaust manifolds/headers and catalytic converters to the engine. This step will
require the disconnection of the air injection and EGR tubes, if applicable. Remove the unattached components from the
vehicle including the left and right side gaskets.
7.
Unplug the left and right side pre and post O2 sensors off the wire harness and install the O2 extension wires to the pre O2
wire harness. The post O2 sensors will not be reused.
8.
Remove the engine oil filter (it is recommended that the engine has not been run for a minimum of 1 hour before removal).
NOTE: This is required for clearance to install the left side BlackHeart long tube header.
9.
Using the original left and right gaskets removed from step 6 (replace if necessary), install the left and right side BlackHeart
long tube headers using (x12) supplied M8 x 1.25 x 25 bolts and tighten starting with the middle bolt and working your way out.
10. Install the spark plugs, spark plug wires, engine oil dipstick tub and the engine oil filter.
11. Install the BlackHeart RACE ONLY exhaust system P/N’s 705013128RHKR or 705014128RHKR (not included). Refer to the

705014127RHKR (not included). Refer to the installation instruction sheet.
12. Install the left and right side pre O2 sensors onto the BlackHeart long tube headers and secure to the O2 extension wires.
Use the supplied (x4) cable ties to secure the wire harness to the motor/transmission and away from any hot and/or moving
parts.
13. Connect the battery, start the engine, and check for leaks.
14. Re-check your work.
15. Remove the jack stands and lower the vehicle.
16. After 150 miles, re-check and tighten all bolts and clamps.
