    Headers installation

    Now that you guys have helped decide what i want to buy - i need to know about installation. I am going to buy black painted pacesetter long tube headers for my '99Z28 6spd. How difficult is the installation? I don't care how long it takes as i am about to have summer vacation from school. Do i need to weld anything?

    This is the walk-through I used when I installed my headers and it really helped out. http://projectcamaro.com/headerinstall.htm

    It took me 4-5 hours. It isn't too bad, plus it makes spark plug changes SO much easier.

    did mine with the y-pipe in about 6.5 hours......my friend has a hoist so it was much easier.....if you have access to a hoist i would suggest that and make sure you use stock manifold gaskets not the napkins they send in the kit!!

    Me and a buddy did it in 8 hrs in the garage. We would have been done in 5.. but ran into an issue getting the ORY pipe to fitup.

    That time included lunch... and a few beer breaks!
