For those of you who installed your headers on yourself, what is the hardest part of it?? I looked down the driver side of mine and it looks real easy to get to from underneath!!

Most likely gonna go with Pacesetter headers with Y-pipe! Just cant bring myself to spend over $1000 for something that does the same thing for half the cost!

Getting the stage 8 lock's and clip's on. The clip's are a pain. The rest was pretty easy and just bolted together with the dynatech's. The only thing i needed to go to the muffler shop for was to weld a bung in for my wideband. If you plan on installing a wideband later, it would be easier to get the bung welded in before installing the header's. Good Luck Jim!!!
