    So we removed the mount, raised the engine, slid the header in place, dropped the engine, put the mount back together, then finally bolted the header in place. it was a lot of juggling... but its all done now and it looks great! hope that helps.
    Just as long as you dont try and install Prothane mounts in the car! That would be the only thing other than tuning and exhaust that I'd have someone else do! Have fun with that shit, took me 3 hours to get the mounts line up in the k-member with everything out of the car!!!

    I used to do a lot of my own work on my 89 and some on my 93 convert 5.0. Was just so much easier to work on. These cars have no room. I did some of my work but when it was time for the headers I sent it to a shop. It was like $400 to install the LT's, ORY, and catback. Also it only took a day for that plus the tune and a few other minor problems I was having so I didn't have to loose my weekend since I sometimes work Sat and SUn.

    I had the exact same problem. Pissed me off also, I ended up loosening the motor mounts enough to lift the engine, on drivers side.

    At the end of the day, I ran into more problems reinstalling the oil dipstick. Couldnt remember the angle or how it fit through the LTs. Goodluck man...
    Real men do their installs (no offense) to others.

    I did replace the motor mounts with prothane mounts at the same time as the headers. it really wasnt that bad just taking my time.

    Lucky man, Mine were like 1/8" off and took me forever and lots of prying on the motor to get the holes to line up. I've heard of people having problems and other people have them slip right in with no problem.
