Thanks for all the info, fellas. It's at a Firestone, and I didn't ask them their hourly rate. He said after checking to see if all the O2 sensors were working correctly it'd be 4-5 hours for them to do it.

I've thought about doing it myself...but I don't have a garage (well I have a big parking garage, but not my own garage) let alone the tools....which I'm not even sure what I would need. Once you say it like..."save that $460 for other mods"...it sounds very tempting.

I'm not mechanically inclined myself. I installed my CAI, throttle body, JDP halos...and that's about it. I do have four jack stands and a jack.

Anybody wanna help??? Ha!

No I already have the new OEM gaskets (~$35) and O2 extensions. This is just labor.

Are new gaskets required? I thought you could use your existing ones or is it just recommend to get new ones since their so inexpensive?

No, they're not required...some people have used the old ones and have no problems. I just figured they weren't too expensive and I won't even worry about using the old ones.

Yup you will only be about 2 hours away from most ECC events which is about what the Tallahassee members have to drive when we meet up with the group in PC and Crestview.
