I have had the headers on my Super Duty for about a month now. Install was straight forward, everything fit as it was supposed to. The only thing I did not like that was in the kit was the exhaust clamps, I feel it should have been a band clamp instead. I would order 2 band clamps ahead of time when installing these headers. I had 12 broken studs, so I had a lot of time into it, but not including stud extraction, install time took about 4-5 hrs. I am a diesel mechanic, and do this stuff everyday. With these headers you will no longer have to worry about broken studs, unlike with manifolds, which was the main reason I went with headers. I also choose these because of the built in my pipe, Fords is very restrictive, and lastly for the thick tubes and flange. I have pulled with these headers quite a bit now and have noticed a decent increase in power, and feels like a slightly wider power band. The truck no longer down shifts on certain hills I would have had to before. After a month I have checked the bolts twice, re-torqued the bolts a week after install, they all moved a little, after that have not had any problems, no exhaust leaks. I am very happy with this purchase.

This set of headers took 7+ hrs to install with 2 people (one of which is a service manager at a dealership). Whoever designed these headers clearly didn't do an installation on them, otherwise, they'd have gone back to the drawing board. Be prepared to spend a ton of time turning nuts very slowly in confined spaces. There are numerous nuts, mostly on the passenger side, that are difficult to access with anything less than a foot of socket wrench extensions or only an open-ended wrench. On the driver's side, there is one nut that you MUST put on first (third cylinder from the front, top side of the cylinder), or you can't get it on, due to clearance issues. On top of that, it's hard to reach AND see, and it took one person guiding the other's wrench to tighten it. Performance wise, I haven't noticed anything better than stock on my test drive, and the sound is about the same as the stock manifold. I replaced the OEM due to gasket failure and the terrible quality of the OEM manifolds. In short, have several different lengths of wrench extensions, thin and thick walled sockets and deep sockets as well.

Good header that fit perfectly and now I have plenty of room to change oil filter from above, which is huge bonus. Truck runs smoother at low speed and at high speed.
