Hello all,

If you're going to go with headers, I'd suggest sticking with RPI.

Look at this post: Agency Power Exhaust?

Yep install should be $800-$1000. I've heard AP headers are good buys for the money. Another good option is Evolve for the money. RPI is also very good but a lot more money and probably not that much better as there are Lonny so many ways to design the headers. If you want to go big then look at SS.

As for a step by step I haven't seen one but it requires you to lift the engine or suspend the engine and lower the subframe. That is why the cost is so high for the install.
