    what a waste of money. i dont think ive ever seen a single legit dyno sheet that showed any gain with shorty headers

  2. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kevin Seligmann says:

    Chrome bailing wire, awesome!

  3. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars HUCKLEBERRY says:

    Putting lipstick on a pig.

  4. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars IkeRaiser266 says:

    <3 just my 2 cents here but i seen quite a few car mechanics videos on youtube.. but genuinely just for some reason ray seems just hit the right chord with me…idk why but he just does <3

    also i would like to humble brag (in a extremely nice and fair kind of way) hopefully someday about getting a little shoutout in one of rays videos…you do you <3

  5. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dan Bentch says:

    Welp, this has cured me of thinking about headers on my Mustang… Major PITA, for a little bit of power, propensity to crack and burn through… Thanks for a great video, Ray

  6. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars VidelicetMoi says:

    The best details. Excruciating for you.

  7. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Maxx Michael says:

    those were the wrong headers for that truck …. did t need all the curvy action

  8. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Trust Me says:

    Don't you have to reprogram the ECM to account for the change in back pressure?

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Gino Bragoli says:

    I enjoyed the video until the end when I saw the piece of flimsy wire barely holding on to the ugly piece of heat resistant stuff wrapped around the header tube, not to mention the awful bolt as a spacer (use a smaller length bolt). Sorry Ray but not this time.

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kartsa says:

    Why you don't use antiseize paste for exhaust bolts…?

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars GM_JODY says:

    I have bbk shorties on my 2016 ram. I find that I'm chasing exhaust leaks on it constantly. Putting in remflex header gaskets on my next go around. I'm hopeful that takes care of it.

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Cody We says:

    Header installation afterwards run her HOT and while still running 1/4 turn each bolt…not too tight or you'll snap one..never worry about bolts loosen up after that .

    And try not to burn yourself, welding gloves for a torch work wonders

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars peter penberthy says:

    "This is Boss" man your showing your age.

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jerry Weninger says:

    Your videos would fall flat if you didn't talk to your work and parts and yourself. How you keep your composer is amazing, if it were me the videos would have a warning xxx adult language, turn your sound off.

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Paul Monk says:

    Wouldn't it be easier to use a shorter bolt?

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Average Joe says:

    I'd mark that bottom bolt on the collector. Take it off and cut off 1/4" and then re-install it! Not to mention shutting off the truck so it won't be so HOT while working on it! LOL

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Babalon48 says:

    Priceless – Watching Ray, with 10-times the toolbox storage us mere mortals have, but no pair of duckbills or safetywire pliers (snappy has some), and spending more than 60 seconds twisting wire. If you need to justify the cost, it twists wire real shiny!

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars David says:

    The person that owns this truck would have been better off asking to have OEM manifolds installed.

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars livingdeadbtu says:

    Dee bris… like a snippy snip snip

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Paczki789 says:

    I would like to see you do this on a hemi car instead. Correction… I'd like to see the pain of you doing this on a charger/challenger/300. Correction again… I'd like the pain to be expressed via a video of headers being installed on a hemi car.

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Patrick Pigg says:

    Putting headers on a stock exhaust?

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars M Rajinj says:

    I only see one problem on the passenger side. The flip back tube is still going to radiate heat on those cooling lines. Oops, sorry I spoke too soon. Lol Great video!

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars TyphaDog says:

    He called you Ray-cist.

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars EVS2K says:

    I spent a couple of days last week working on a Ford and found myself using an open ended spanner to rotate an obscured bolt 30º at a time (rotating spanner between each 30º). I thought to myself, Ray must know a better way. Apparently not. 😉

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Michael Smith says:

    I had less trouble installing TSP 1-3/4" long tubes on my '01 C5, crazy.

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Phương Ma says:

    Those rubbers hoses not going to survive more than 2 years , if the owner not seal taped those rubbers , you should wrap the rubber hoses not the pipe header 😂😂😂

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Gary Thorley says:

    I really enjoy watching this channel, thanks Ray for all the challenges you capture and edit up so we can all follow along.

    I quite often wonder if any of the owners of the vehicles you work on ever watch your videos? Personally I'd love to watch footage of a great technician working on my vehicle.

    Keep up the excellent work and content Ray, its so appreciated by so many 🤩

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Carsten says:

    So glad you took us along on the test drive.

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars don lum says:

    Header suck go stock

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars William Duhamel says:

    My nephew put a set on his 2012 Camaro and had the same problem.

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Adam Durham says:

    "more goodier" I love it…im a health teacher (at a private school) and I use this phrase all the time my students love it the English teacher hates it because the students are starting to say it now

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Robert Smith says:

    that dont seem worth the aggravation

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John Welch says:

    Dam good job Ray.👍👍

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars sandra folsom says:

    I’ve dealt with headers several times and I’m convinced the manufacturers never try to install them.

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars James Jones says:

    Trim the bolt….duh

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars iRenegade says:

    I'm stunned…no, SHOCKED…that Ray doesn't have a set of safety-wire pliers! They would have come in handy for the exhaust wrapping and made really professional look to the finished product. And, I saw the bolt/collector interference comin' a mile away! Next time, just cut it to the right length, Yo. LMAO
    I want you, Ray, to have a wonderful day……..

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bruiser01 says:

    Just watching him put headers on makes me wonder why???? Anyone would wanna pay Big $$$$ for the headers and the Labor to,put them on a TRUCK??? I can see if it’s a Trophy Truck or some other pure competition type truck but a regular street pickup??? I don’t get it!!🤷🏻‍♂️🤦🏻‍♂️

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars lightning demolition says:

    „I never had much of a vocabulary. In fact, my friend Bob Schneider would still be alive today if I'd known the difference between "antidote" and "anecdote". He got bitten by a copperhead, and I'm telling him funny stories out of Reader's Digest. His head started to swell, I said "This ain't working."“

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Timothy Peterson says:

    It's always the bottom ones that show leaks

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars The Quick Brown Fox says:

    Ya know, about those wrenches you are promoting… Looking at the great difficulty you, a highly trained professional, are having using them, I am not sure me, a mere mortal armchair YouTube professional, could ever hope to properly use one. Can you recommend something with an easier learning curve, possibly from the playschool collection?

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Timothy Peterson says:

    Unless those gaskets are designed like what they call the Detroit gasket it will leak

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ross Tafarian says:

    I thought it was dee-briss.

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars L T says:

    This looks like no fun…
    Although we're thinking of doing this with our 2017 Ram, since we've had it to the stealership three times within this last year for broken exhaust manifold studs. 😬

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Sammy Montego says:

    I'm sorry, why is one pipe on the headers looped exactly??

  45. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Sean says:

    I recommend getting pair of Safety Wire Pliers. They lock onto the wire, then spin automatically when you pull on the back of them. Don't know how often you would need them doing automotive work, but you can get a serviceable pair for under thirty bucks. Cheers -Sean H
