The long tubes should be easier. My American Racing Headers were easy to install as they bolt up to their high flow cats and that bolts to my catback exhaust.

Good luck with the install!!

If you have the tools I strongly suggest removing the alternator which takes about 15-20 mins to take off and put back on. It will definitely save you some time. The passenger side header is a real PITA otherwise. The driver side should take you about an hour and the passenger side takes about 4-5 hours unless you remove the alternator. If you do that it'll take about 2 hrs if you're a skilled mechanic. Hope that helps.

If done correctly, about as often as stock which is never?

Yeah, I'd drive around about 500 miles, then check them. After that, you're golden

Me and my buddy installed my bbk lt's last weekend and in total it took us about 9 hours without taking the alternator off, We installed headers, x-pipe, and axle back exhaust on the car. Plus it was the first time either of us had done something like that.
