Depending on the manifold/header set up the bends may be different and
allow more or less room for wrenches. I have several sets of wrenches
that are different lengths and thickness and find that some work better
at one location compared to another. I find that the set that I've
gotten from Sears are a bit thick for some locations. Got to love those
Snap On wrenches that are thinner.
Make sure that all the nut sizes are the same. When I first got my car
I had a mixture of 12 and 13 mm nuts. What a pain in the ___.
Again, depending on the headers, the current set that I have will not
allow for the removal of some nuts until the whole header is moved out
half way on the studs.
