    today I finally installed my new headers, they were soooo dificult to install because the old one was sooooooo stuck, I mean It took like 2 days to remove it dude, so now the new headers get too hot (the heat goes all into the engine, it even fogs my windshield, not like before with the stock ones), so I was thinking, is there any way of maybe controlling that heat a little bit? I dont want it to get sucked onto my CAI, Im tlking about kind of discipating that heat away from the top of the engine a little bit idk...

    why is the new header getting hotter than the stock??? it shouldnt, maybe you have an exhaust leak somewhere. and i agree with delsol88. use header wrap
