Just finished replacing head gaskets and installing the Downey headers. The headers were a little more difficult to install than I thought. THe performance from the headers is not as great as I expected, I notice more torque, but not alot more power.
I also resealed my power steering pump, this was a real easy job and worked out very well.

now you need to do a catback upgrade such as 2.25 inch piping with a high flow muffler such as flowmaster, borla etc. You wont really get a good reading of new power because the exhaust is not free flowing to the cat, and then stuffed through 1 3/4 +/- stock piping, so power is not helped out too much. Thats what i plan on doing to mine come spring.

The only mod. that I have is the headers. WHen the rest of the exhaust goes bad I'll replace the cat and rest of the exhaust.
