You can leave the motor in to install the heads. It is a lot easier to do it on an engine stand but not necessary if you don't have the equipment. If you don't already have one, a Haynes or Chiltons manual is a must. It's fairly easy as long as you follow the steps in the manual.

Thanks a lot for the response would u think I'll feel a big diffrence on the car? The heads are ported as well so do I need a diffrent type of gaskets? What about the cylinder heads should I spend like 60 $ for one cylinder gasket or should I go with the 20$

I'm using the fel pro "9333-pt1" gaskets and they seem to be just fine. You shouldn't need a different type of gasket. I did a H/C/I swap when I did mine and felt a nice difference in performance. If you're doing just the heads I'm not sure how much you'll notice.

They were 20 a piece. You should notice a difference in performance, but the gt40 heads alone won't net 40-50. They net around 20-30 in stock form. Since they're ported you should get a nice bump in Hp over that.

Oh damn 20 bucks that's pretty cheap and they have been working fine and everything ever since?
What about a torque wrench would I need that as well?

Yes, you will definitely need a torque wrench. If you can swing it you should put a cam in while you have the heads off.
