Has anyone installed JBA shorty headers?

I am looking to get them installed, but I can't afford the 250-300 a regular shop charges. I was wondering if anyone could install them and maybe help me save some cash.

I am on a HS budget and I already skip quite a few meals to get mods

It is very informative, but I don't have a welder nor do I trust myself trying to weld something. I know my dad and I can do the install just not the welding part.

Actually $300 is a decent price. I install them my self after seeing video above. Trust me it's worth paying it.. It was such a pain in the rear to do. The welding u can take it to a good muffler shop and they will weld it for u. But you need a filler tube to fill in the space from headers to down pipe, gap is too large to just weld in. Bolts are hard to get to in front of manifold and you could develope a leak and u will get engine code. So, my advice from experiance is save more lunch money recycle a few cans and pay to install it.

I found a shop to do it for 225. I think I will go with that unless a shop on here can beat that
