    Yep. I took the header off the car before I sold it, and it sat around my garage for a year or two. It saw a lot of wet, salty roads in WI and MN during its 30k miles of use. I sold it to a Baja owner, who told me that as soon as he installed it on his car and started it, the header cracked and leaked. For what it's worth, the header had been modified previously by a local exhaust shop; they tacked some of the primaries together to try to fix the buzzing/resonance issue. I'm sure they used mild steel wire. I don't know whether the header cracked at one of the original welds or one of the mild steel welds.

    I've come to really hate exhaust header wrap. The cheap fiberglass stuff that has to be installed wet is nasty to work with, and even the nice DEI Lava Wrap, which you install dry, will chafe and come apart if it rubs against anything during installation/removal. The next time I install an aftermarket exhaust component upstream of the cats on any car, it will be ceramic coated.

    1) Yes, the circuit board is a part of the LED unit and comes with it all assembled.
    2) I switched to the Red. No issues with brightness in my opinion. Perfect. Until they died. Flicker on and off. I returned them under warranty.

    Thanks for your 2009 post on replacement of instrument cluster bulbs. I'd appreciate your help on two questions:
    1. Does each LED come with one of the printed circuit boards shown in your photo?
    2. You mentioned that the cool white bulbs you installed in your car were too bright. Did your friend with the red bulbs have the same issue?

    Yes, it is just a remove and replace operation for the installation of the LEDs.

    Hello there, I've been reading over your posts on changing your dash lights from the old burnt out bulbs to LEDs. Is there anything else you have to do other than take the old bulbs out and put the new ones in? The LEDs look completely different so I didn't know if there was anything else I needed to do. Thanks for your help
