Bbk Shorty headers

Anybody in the Houston area know of a place where they got headers or exhaust installed that's reliable? Just got my shorty headers from Bbk and I've been asking around what's a good place and wanted to hear from anybody's experience in Houston to get them installed. And any suggestions on what I should ask the shop. I've heard things about using the oem gaskets instead.

If you have the ability to get your car on ramps or jackstands (all you need is the front raised), I'd say do it yourself. It's actually very easy on our cars because of the space we have in the engine bay. Takes 2-3 hours tops.

Get yourself a ratcheting wrench, a swivel for a socket wrench and some extensions. That's all you really need for this install.

Bbk Shorty headers

You might want some penetrating oil and I used a 3/4" x 18" pipe as a cheater bar.

Tools used for cat bolts:

Ratchet 3/8"
6" extension
10" extension
3/8" swivel
15mm deep well
17mm deep well (new bolts)
Pipe

Tools used to header bolts:

Ratchet 3/8"
4" extension
13" deep well
13" ratcheting wrench (for replacing nuts in header)

10mm socket for removing one bolt to cooling line on passenger side

Optional (to tighten header bolts if they come loose):

Ratchet 1/4"
5mm socket
