This was the first time i've used the Red Line Performance headers - they were a little different. Took about 5.5 hrs.

Dont you or one of your buddies have access to tools and a place to work on it? It will save you some money, and there are folks out there that will help for some pizza and beer. Regardless, cheaper help than a shop.

I got the pacesetter ceramic coated LT's with ORY for $520 shipped. And I installed them myself in my driveway with jackstands and a friend. Worked on it off and on between work and school here and there, took about a week of downtown. But it guess it took about ~7 hours of total labor.
Got quoted at a shop for $500 for install. Pocketed the cash and gained the experience and knowledge.

Yeah a header job in the very confined space of an LT1 engine bay is intimidating, but if you take a stab at it and follow the procedures right, you can surely do it yourself. Just like spark plugs. Shops will exaggerate the job, when it really isn't all that much too it. With the proper tools and access to underneath the car, it's pretty simple.
