How much has everyone paid to have headers installed?

How much has everyone paid to have headers and cat back installed?
I want to do it myself but I would pay someone if the cost is not too high.

Thanks.

Bill

Y not do it youself easiest headers i have ever put on. I did them in garage floor on jack stands went real smooth. Took me about 4 hours so i would not pay more than 300 for headers and exhaust install if it were me.

Installed my XS Power headers and catback myself a couple days ago. Didnt take too long, most of the time was spent aligning it (still needs a little tweaking).

Free! Did full exhaust... With headers... 2.5 hours... In garage on jack stands... Exhaust is by far one of the easiest things to install.

Did them myself. Very easy. First time ever doing it and it took me about 5 hours. Well, actually 4 with many "beer breaks"

We charge between $125 and 180 to install them....its not rocket science.

Hope that helps in your quest to find an installer!

These cars are probably some of the easiest ever made when it comes to a header install...I wouldn't pay more than 4 hours of labor if I couldn't do it myself...
