Default Installing Long Tubes is harder on Mustang or LS1

I'm a Big GM guy and I love F-bodies and me and some guys were talking about putting long tube headers on cars. Well I told them that I think putting long tube headers on a modular mustang is harder than putting them on a LS1. We they disagreed. I know that putting long tubes on a modular is a PITA, cause we did it on my buddies car when he did a engine swap. So I was wondering what you guys think and I know the LT1's are were worse than the LS1's, but we were only talking about LS1's.

Headers on LS1 = easier than pickin' up fat chicks at a bar.

Headers on a modular Mustang = PITA.

Me and a friend spent 3 days of working 20hrs a day on putting the LT's on his mustang. After those 3 grueling days we looked at the box it came in and noticed it said "for cars equipped with automatic transmission only". His was a 5sp. He sent them back to BBK and got his money back and i havent worked on a Ford since.

I remember when I cross threaded a header bolt hole on my head on my car when swapping the headers, and I looked up information on tapping the heads.

I went onto a Mustang forum and somebody was asking the same question I was, and they asked, "How hard is it to tap the heads." First reply was "Not hard at all once you tear the entire motor down."

That was pretty memorable.

I've installed them on one mod, several LT1s and at least a 9 LS1s. F-body LS1s are the easiest headers in the world to install. LT1s are not bad. Mods are a ******* night mare :banghead:

Because of the size of the mod motor. It's as big as a big block chevy

They certainly never tried it. The worst part is you don't gain much. My buddies '98 Cobra gained either 9 or 12 at the wheels.

every ls1 ive done slip in like butter, i dont unhook anything like some say to. my instructions said to remove the starter, the oil filter the block off plate above the filter and the steering shaft....... i unhooked the battery so i didnt arc the post on the starter and they slid right in. the driver side rear corner of the flange barely hit the firewall and a little push and it was in. nothing to it. ive done hooker/flowtechs and pasesetters and they have all fell right in
