    Default Lexus IS-F Header Installation

    I just received my PPE Header for my 2012 IS-F. Anyone recommend someone/shop who can professionally install the header.

    It's can be installed with jack stands (difficult), but can be done a lot easier with a lift.

    The instruction is below. It should take between 6-8 hours.

    I'd take it to RCTS.

    Thanks everyone.

    Getting quotes from Tunerworks, Rev Performance, RCTS and another mechanic.

    The installation is a little tricky, so I would prefer someone who has done this before for the IS-F. It has to be done meticulously.

    I thought of doing it myself.. but it would probably take me 24 hours instead of the 6-8 hours for a professional mechanic.

    Anyone have a PPE Header installed in Calgary for IS-F?

    If you want meticulous, you will for sure get that from RCTS. Never used tuner works so I can't speak on them, but even if RCTS is a bit more money you can rest assured your car is in good hands.

    I've done it before, and I have a decently fast way to do it.

    I will warn you now...I've installed a lot of PPE headers, and I've had multiple fitment issues with them.

    Thanks, JZS_147.

    I don't know about the other PPE headers but for the Lexus IS-F there are only 2 Headers (Sikky and PPE) available for the North American market.

    The PPE Header is the better quality and fitment. I had my Lexus IS 350 installed with another PPE Header and the person who installed it was impressed by its quality.

    The header will likely be installed at Tunerworks.
