Fitting Equal length headers on 95 import

Hi i have some equal length headers i in herrited with my car (not fitted). I want to put them on, i have bought exhaust wrap (black ) and metal clips to fasten to pipework. There is also a section which i presume fits to the bottom of the turbo? My first question is how do i remove the old headers, do i need to get the front bumper off and lift the car up to do this. Secondly, the seperate pipe which fixes to the equal length pipework attaches itself to the equal section, but how? There are bolt holes etc but should there be a gasket or something inbetween the pipework as i dont seem to have one? Im presuming there will be gaskets inbetween the headers and the block also? My last question is where abouts on the block do the headers attach, will i need to get the tmic, strut brace off etc to get to them? Sorry for all the questions, im a mega novice Regards Gareth

Re: Fitting Equal length headers on 95 import

bumper stays in place,you will find nuts holding headers to the block,iirc 2 nuts n bolts on the up pipe and where the up pipe bolts to the tubby,there will be 5 studs....unbolt and drop em off,may need to losen drives side engine mount(17mm) to jack the block so as to get the up pipe flange through the gap..
