    That ride is Sikkk!!!! I don't have the equipment and I'm not good at working on cars. I've failed the emissions and just want it done right.

    Lol thanks I've put a lot into it. Ah it's going to be expensive. It takes basic tools and a Jack and Jack stands.

    Make sure you get a floor Jack and stands that can go up around 20+ inches. It will make it a whole lot easier.

    Go to Speed Inc. if you ever end up needing a shop for something.
    It's on jackstands.

    You also need a second person to hold the header as you get a bolt started. Be very careful on the drivers side header. Near #1 plug just behind the power steering pump/reservoir is the coolant temp sensor that goes into the head. They are a usual victim of header installs because you don't remove it unless you want to drain your coolant.
