What is easier?

I am putting new valve springs, cams, cam gears, and long tube headers on my 99 gt. Will it be easier to pull the motor or try to do it while it's still in the car?

If you can pull the motor that would be the easiest way to in stall those internals. I'm not sure about the headers, I just know that they'll be a pain in the butt... But you'll get them in there.

That's what I was thinking, but would I put the headers on before I put it back in or after?

I just changed my valves springs and cammed my car and I'll tell you this right now. BUY NEW LIFTERS. My motor now sounds like a diesel cause the increased valvetrain noise. My car already had long tubes so I'm not sure about the difficulty of that but it's pretty easy to do the rest in the car. Just use a compressor to keep the valves from dropping in and it's simple. Well I shouldn't say simple just not hard just tedious with the valve locks. If you don't remove the heads PLUG YOUR OIL RETURNS. I dropped 2 locks down them somehow and had to fish them out with a magnet.
