    header install

    so my mechanic (who gives me deals on everything I get him to do) offered to do my header install for 200 dollars in labor. I don't have the time to do it really. do you think this is a good deal and is there anything aside from plugs and wire I would want done at the same time?

    Sounds more than fair. Make sure you give him proper gaskets, bolts, etc. and some lock tight. Don't want to sidestep at this point.

    well I am taking yall's advice and getting him to do it. I'm buying him a couple supplies he uses all the time for the good deal. I'll end up paying him 250 in total. he's really nice to me I mean heck he changed out my differential and rear axles for 600 bucks including parts. he gives me great deals when I pay him cash. I should have the long tubes on by friday night though so hold your breath for some open header sound clips. I'll get a couple with the lm1 on next monday or tuesday too.
