Just wondering what other people have paid to get there headers installed? I got a quote of $400 from a local shop and I am trying to figure out if that is a good deal.


Thanks

that is what I thought until they told me 400 for headers and 200 for pulleys? So i dont know why they seemed to give me great on header install and then tried to stick it to me for pulleys. I will do the pulleys myself tomorrow and make an appoinment for this weekend to get the headers on.

I just had one of my best friends install my headers for me, so i got a brake... but he did say that the book on them was 3 hours a piece for install. So your price of $400 sounds bout right, if not a good deal.

The I guess I got a deal. I was charged $375.00 to put on a set of Crawfords. It took them two days to do it, and they changed all the mounting studs. They installed a set of DCs in a "Z" the week before my Crawfords, for $200.00. The shop is Apex Motorsports in Tucson. A nice little shop.

I'm using jackstands and I'm patient.
I'm going to have to start early because it gets dark at 5pm
might have to start at6am after i get a couple of del taco breakfeast burritos.
I'm going to drive by my buddy salems on friday and we will check things out on his lift(good guy he did a full rebuild on my b16a motor back in the day) and borrow any tools he thinks i might need.
maybe he will have a free day and help me out so things might change.

Pay your friend if you have to. Just to use the lift, Daniel. You will get it done much quicker that way. And much more safe.

I've heard installing headers yourself is a huge PITA, but then again I am a cheap ******* and I don't have a mechanic I would trust. I can follow directions all day long and I'm quite mechanical, but I am by no means versed on cars or Z's.
Would trying to install headers myself be foolish. Would it be easy for a novice to do plenty of damage under their inadvertantly, or get my self in a situation I can't get out of without help.

Thoughts?

Thanks.
