    Do it yourself

    But if you have a shop do it, it should be between $400 and $800

    It really isn't that bad a job, especially if you have some help. Take your time and pay attention so you do not break anything. When you unbolt the stock manifolds, be very careful. Once each bolt broke free, I found it best to run it in and out a bit as I was removing it. A few felt like they wanted to tighten up as they were unscrewed and this seemed to work them free.

    The stock GM manifold gaskets are probably the best thing to go with. I tossed the gaskets that came with my Kooks aside and bought a new set from the local dealership. What are you doing about your O2's? A set of Bosch 13111 sensors have a long enough harness that extensions are not required. Not a bad idea, especially if your current sensors are original to the car.

    I was told to reuse the stock gaskets when I was ordering from texas speed, I would order upgraded bolts just in case, I was able to reuse my stock ones too
