    I've never done an LT1. Exhaust work in general tends to suck and the more rust it has on it the more suck it has about it.
    Count on a few hours I'd say and that's if you don't break bolts and hangers getting the old stuff out. When I did my headers I didn't mess around with bolts on the Y. The first tool I grabbed was a sawzall.

    I see the army specialty badge, if you're still active, just go to your base hobby shop and use one of their lifts. It'll make it alot easier. LOTS OF WD-40 or LIQUID WRENCH (that's my preference).

    good luck,
