I want to get a 4-2-1 hotshot header, WAI, pulley, and exhaust system, is there any order i should get them in or does it matter?

for installation of the header, do i have to take the engine out to put them on or can i leave it in?

thanks for the input!

I went from:

stillen exhaust and WAI to
JWT ecu to
F-Max Turbo Kit to
Blitz Nur-Spec exhaust to
full build up (tranny and engine).

Im missing little stuff like, KYB's, Intrax springs, RSB, FSTB, and rims (but I dont count rims as mods).

Do it in any order although I heard with the stock exhuast system the header sounds like shit.

I did a short ram intake, pulley, and exhaust all within week. The combo, all at once, feels great.

I dont see why not , Synthetic will not cause oil Leaks , it will only make existing leaks worse !! I went to Synthetic at 135K ....Also remember to set plug gap at .047 in. and go to a 6 heat range ....

If I change and discover leaks that I didn't know about, if I went back to regular would it bring it back to normal? Ide like the extra performance and longer time between changes but i dont wanna hafta start getting gaskets replaced because of it. Does the plug gap and heat range hafta be changed when switching to synthetic, and will the haynes manual tell me how to do this? Ive never heard of the heat range before...

can someone explain the spark plug gap and heat range thing if you change to synthetic
i really don't know if he was referring to me or just to the person who made this thread about putting in plugs... Cause I don't really see how the oil would really have an effect on those other parts unless it changes the timing or something.:confused:
