I actually checked it out yesterday after I joined the FB group. I think it's a great idea, and is extremely beneficial to folks that know how to do things themselves. However, it wouldn't help me much. Although I am at least a bit mechanically-inclined, I don't know much about (or have any experience with) header/exhaust installs.
Yes, I do my own work...including the ARH and high flow cats. The install is actually pretty easy. I installed ARP header studs which made the job even easier. I did the manifold removal and header studs while the headers were at the ceramic coater, so I really don't remember how long it took to do that part...maybe 2-3 hours taking time. The install time on the headers was fast, considering the car was pre-prepped...maybe an hour on the high side. I installed them myself, though an extra set of hands would have been nice. As for JRE, I bought the SCT tuner and headers through Ted so I could get the free tune. I then called ARH directly and had them add an extra bung for wide-band. The whole process took about two weeks after payment. I highly recommend Ted and his staff. They were thorough and have provided solid service after the sale.

Another note: I went ahead and installed Granatelli plug wires...I wanted the insurance of the additional heat resistance. The close to 0 ohms doesn't hurt either...

There were 4 of us at Cabela's for a while and a dark blue Camaro rolled through about the time I was leaving at 8:30, but don't know if it was a Camaro5 or 4C member. I met Thomas and Josh and talked a while. Naomi and Turtle were there in their 45th vert but I didn't actually see them; hope to do so in future. Was a great evening weather wise too so hopefully its a sign Fall is coming and it'll feel better to be out in the evenings for these gatherings.
