Header install??

I just purchased some DT shorties and JBA midpipes with highflow cats and I want to tackle this project myself so I'm wondering how hard is all of this stuff to install, videos or anything would help

Not hard at all. After you remove the stock cats the exhaust manifold slide out and the headers slide right into place. The only hard part was tightening the nut connecting the header to the cats on the passage side, very little room to turn the wrench. I would also suggest Stage 8 bolts to secure the headers. It is also helpful to have another set of hands to help.
