L/T header, x pipe instillation

I ordered a MAC LT and x pipe combo and was wondering what I should expect for an instillation cost.

That's what I was thinking. One of the guys I know quoted around 500 for the install. I just was wondering if that sounded fair or unfair

I was going to say at about 100k might as well replace the clutch too. Since lt's make it hard to replace it

Is it worth it to put the headers and x pipe in?

A Mustang shop will charge you $600, the whole K member has to come out. Some shops will charge much more...

Any shop that quotes you around $2-300 is full of malarkey. Because once they get to unbolting the stock headers they will run into snapping bolts and will drive the labor cost up. I say if you cant install them yourself dont bother with them because once something goes wrong in the clutch region or your starter goes out have fun paying those labor charges again because it all has to be removed and installed again.
