Default How much does it cost to get headers installed?

Can anyone tell me how much they spent on getting headers installed by a shop?

I was quoted $400. I chose to do them myself and everything went smoothly.

its not that bad, DIY..I only had one issue, the previous owner thought it would be a good idear to weld up the borla catback to the i-pipe and to the y-pipe, this meant I had to cut the damn I-pipe from the Y. Thats a real PITA without a lift, but I managed with my pneumatic cut-off wheel

lol you dont have to remove the engine to install LTs. But generally when you want to remove the engine it is easier to unbolt everything connected to the car such as the front suspension, coolant hoses going to the radiator, ps, wiring harnesses, and a few more and lift the car up, exposing the engine sitting on the k member and 2 front wheels. It is possible to pull the engine out up top though
