    I've done it. I used the instructions on www.ls1howto.com they're very informative. It's not a hard process, just very time consuming and labor-intensive. You don't need to pull the engine, everything is very accessable with the engine still in the car, you're just going to be humping your engine for a while.

    You got a LOT of work dude with the header install too.

    Replace that Oil pump with a ported LS6 while you are at it. Oil pressure goes up 20%. So does engine life expectancy.
