    My ARH are coming... hopefully Friday. Thought I would document my installation, thoughts and overall review their product. Keep in mind I will not be biased in any way... if I feel they are not worth our hard earned $$$ I will say it that way.

    Ok... first note I ordered them last week... was hoping to already have them but they had to special fabricate the Y pipe for my truck. Called them yesterday said I should have them Friday or Monday.

    Receive my ARH exhaust kit on Friday... now all I have to do is decide to replace the O2 sensors or not. Here are some pic of the mock setup.

    I have read where some experience dummy light triggers on and off from the after cat sensors... but those have nothing to really do with the fuel mixture. I will let everyone know how things go... and will post some more pics thru the process of installing them... and if possible a video of the sound before and after. I can't wait to get them installed... I have always been a power monger. How does that song go... a girl can never be to pretty... a car/truck can never have enough power in my book...:gasp:

    The after cat sensors are only to keep track of the cat's performance. The front sensors are the ones the PCM uses to monitor the f/a ratio.

    I would reuse the trucks old sensors when you add the new pipes. There will be some oil/other coatings on the inside of the pipes, let this residue burn off for a few days/weeks and then install new front sensor(s).

    Ordered my O2 sensors, header bolt kit and other necessities for the install. Hopefully will have these installed in a week or two.

    Sorry not pics yet... I will get some tomorrow... I promise. Anyway, I love my headers... I am thinking this is the single best customization I have done. This really brings the truck to life. Now when I see a mustang, camaro at an intersection and they try to outrun you... and you actually pull away from them it is awesome... :) The only downside is I still get lean codes periodically... with the trinity I keep increasing the fuel mixture a little at a time... but Im thinking I am going with a custom program.
