    starter has 2 bolts that hold it to the block, very easy to take out.

    Depends on the design of the headers. If I recall, my Kooks went in on the passenger side with the starter in place. If you do remove the starter, make sure to disconnect the battery first and do not allow it to hang from the wires.

    Jeff is right, don't forget to disconnect the battery.

    I would take the starter out anyways because it will give more room to work.

    Don't he will need a relearn from a tech 2 scanner because he is replacing the crankshaft sensor?
