    Piece of cake. 9 nuts for the exhaust flange, 2 for the connection to the cat, 2-3 more if it's a 2 piece.

    You can install a header in your own driveway in under an hour with just a ratchet set and a combo wrench set.

    I did my header bolts with a torque wrench, but yeah, normal ratchets work. Its really really simple.

    remember these words.....there is never too much lube.

    1. jack up the front of the car.

    2. remove down pipe/header bolts

    3. remove header/head bolts

    4. remove down pipe/cat bolts

    5. work in reverse order to install new header


    any questions?

    Use LIBERAL ammounts of WD-40 (watch Silverchild come in here just because i used the L word),

    You shouldn't use a torque wrench to break bolts and nuts loose- putting excessive force on a torque wrench like that screws up its calibration.

    I've never needed lube to get an exhaust manifold apart.
