"drivers side will take 2-3 times longer than passengers side. Removing starter and steering shaft is a must for tightening lower header bolts. I did all my work through the fender wells on both sides so removing tire and plastic fender well was a must for me, also if you do it in this manner make sure you have replacement fender clips, the one that come from the factory are non-reusable, unless you can get your hands behind the fender to push them together. installing the driver side header was a bit of a bear because of the items that needed to be removed first and with a truck with a 1000k+ a spray penetrating lube was necessary. over all the truck ran much quieter with a stock exhaust system still in play, noticeable improvements in hill holding and up shifting. I gave it a "Good" rating on ease of use/installation because it was easy to work with and install just because someone has a bad day and forgot a bolt don't change the installation." posted by: Beercan on November 27, 2009

"easy install on pass side of truck, but the driver side was difficult. The #3 bolt hole needs to be a stud, could not get bolt in because of shape of header, and exhaust pipe would not fit without being forced with bar. Overall good installation. Gas mileage improved and power increased" posted by: DL on April 7, 2008
