    Just like any other long tube headers.
    I did mine in about 6 hours, plus another 1.5 hours to do the exhaust work cause I switched over to true duels x pipe

    took me about 7 my knuckles were in bad shape at the end of the install. I had some header bolt issues.

    Alot of it depends on your tools, resources and mechanical abilities.

    Huge TIP : Coat down the manifold bolts in penetrating oil, it will become your best friend.

    A lift is a lifesaver. I dont see how someone would do it without it.

    My friend with a garage has a drive on lift, and extensive tool set. I put headers on my 67 chevelle and 84 chevy truck. This install seems a lot more involved.

    Its different for everyone, I had to loosen the motor mount on the driver side to get my headers into the engine bay.
