The left-side exhaust manifold lifted out easily without the need to remove the alternator, just the bracket mentioned previously. We were even able to leave the spark plug wires installed while removing the left-side manifold, but we did have to remove them and the spark plugs, on both sides of the engine, in order to position the new headers.

The high-performance catalytic converter from Random Technologies is more than just another replacement converter. In our discussions with the folks at Random, we were impressed with the depth of their knowledge in overall engine management and how it must be carefully integrated with various performance parts so everything works in harmony.
