09-12 Akra headers install

I'm having a really difficult time getting the exhaust and radiator installed. It is the 09-12 Akrapovic full stainless steel system. The #3 header pipe seems to be right where the radiator bracket (T2101330) needs to go. What am I doing wrong?

You need to remove that bracket as it will not work with this system. Akra sends a new bracket to use with the header. Also you need to dump that waste of time O2 sensor i think i am seeing.. should have a plug for it.

also if you are using the akra slip on for this, you need to plan on removing the gas tank to loosen the subframe and unbolt the lower bolts on it, to help make this easier for install.

hit me up if you have questions or issues. about to sell my header, lol which includes the O2 plug and the bracket i guess you are missing.

Most of you people are not capable of being your GD self, to damn worried about being politically correct.

Apparently the missing bracket is not available from Akrapovic. The person I bought the exhaust from no longer has the bracket. Anyone know where I can get one without having one fabricated custom? The Akra part number is P-HF569.

Bought some aluminum off Amazon and went to work with a hacksaw and a torch. I think this will work.

When I installed mine I needed to weld up a radiator bracket as well. Oil filter changes get a bit annoying with the header in the way.

For anyone else looking to do oil changes with the full Akra system I found that the K&N 204 filter has the lowest profile and went on with no problems. There was a Hiflo filter on there from before and I had to resort to using a dremel to cut it in half to get it off.

Stock filter fits ok. A little tight, but it gets in there.
