Banks TorqueTube Headers

Exhaust Headers from Banks Power

February, 1999

When I work on my Jeep and know I am going to be disconnecting electrical connectors I usually disconnect the battery. It's a basic mechanics safety tip I learned long ago. I am also going to spray the bolts I'll have to remove later on the exhaust headpipe (under the Jeep) with some Liquid Wrench, PB Blaster, or some kind of penetrating lubricant.

First to come off is the air intake tube that stretches accross the engine compartment. Two of the three points are outlined in green in the photos above. The third point is where it connects to the air filter box. With that obstacle removed, I can easily identify and remove the fuel injection sensors. There are six of them - the visible ones are indicated by red rectangles in the photos above. I will put some tape on them and mark them so I can put them back on correctly.
