    Header installation

    I have an 02 SS with stock manifolds and was wondering how hard it would be to put headers on. Is it better to get shorties or long tubes, and what brand does everyone recommend.

    Long tubes will help you get the breathing the best. You'll definitely need a lot of time I suggest you use a lift if you can find one.

    Agreed. I have pacesetters which are the best cheap headers in my opinion and Kooks are one of the best headers for LS1's in my opinion.

    I did the install in the driveway on my LT1. A lift would have definately been useful.

    I installed my Pacesetters on jackstands this weekend. It was a bitch but definately better than paying someone anywhere from $300 to $500 to do it. The Pacesetters fitment is very good, sound is great and power is there. I am definately happy with them.

    Dude, you're in St. Louis? Bring that shit over to my house and I'll do it for $50 bucks. You might learn something too.

    I'm in St. Charles.

    Bier Bros? They are expensive compared to some of the other shops around here. How did you manage to get only $350 for labor on a header install? I called them and they quoted me $500 for a header install.

    Wow, $3K doesn't sound too bad for all the work you're getting done.

    Longtubes are easy to install, you dont really need a lift, just use stands and use a block with the jack in top of it and the car would go really high, and the header slips right in, and in the driver side is even easier but just have to cut the tab from the block.
