heading to liquor store

Does anyone know how many beers it takes to install LT headers with high flow cats?
I will be going it alone.

5-7 (greatly depends on how much beer you drink). Not bad, just make sure the car has cooled off for a few hours.

I wore gloves for most of mine, and didnt end up bleeding all that much.

It took me quite a few because I paid someone to do it while I drank beer and watched.

Might be quicker if you wait until after you are done to drink the beer.

This. I didn't have a single cut or bruise when I finished. It was glorious.

Much thanks Strych! I believe its going to be beer drinking only tonight. I already had car off the ground, thought I would loosen rear O2's passenger side is not cooperating, decided I wasn't in the mood anymore. Plus, I really want to drive it tomorrow, if I F up the sensor, that won't happen.

With enough beer, I have a feeling your headers and high flow cats will look like this when you are done.

Wise advice, More than a keg and you should have it towed and done by a professional!

I'd go with a half gallon of vodka, myself, just to be sure it got me through. Not much of a beer drinker (too many kcals). LOL.

+1! have at least a 12 pack handy just in case the going gets rough! Sometimes, if you hit a rough spot, kick back and drink a cold one and hit again!! Most of the time it will all come out good!!
