Looks like you have everything. You just need tools. My advice, hire someone. Took me 12 hours with mine. Total PITA. That being said, I'm glad I did it myself, I enjoyed it. Most people however, will not.

You may want to look into o2 sensor extensions without them you have to stretch it pretty good or find more wire farther up in the wiring harness

I bought the same headers. I plan to install them in March. My Camaro is days away from storage time. I plan to do it myself. I have all the tools necessary. Even bought new GM gaskets and bolts, even thou it may not be necessary, I am doing what I can to prevent any leaks. I have been told the GM gaskets are the best. AS for the O2 extensions some say to get them others say you can find enough wire up stream to make it work. I am hoping to find enough upstream wire to make it work. Otherwise I will be buying the extensions.

May want to look into the Trifecta tune to disable the CEL you will throw. Plus you can then data log to tune the system to its max. with what you have on your set-up.

I just bought the o2 extensions to make it easier...they're not real expensive...I also did the job myself & it was a PITA, but not really difficult...took about 8 hours

I saw you posted in the tune thread, and I responded to you before I saw this thread from you.

You'll want the tune, and right now at $300 its a friggin bargin. If you can afford the funds for the tune now, go for it.

As for performance gains, you should expect around 20HP at peak, and maybe more at off peak rpms like around 5,000 rpms.

im not sure about a link ive yet to get them i found enough wire for the time being but they are pulled kinda tight but yea it is kinda PITA took my time and it was about 8-10 hours of install time some bolts pretty tough to get to so they would take 20 mins to get out little by little but i would suggest having a second person just makes it alittle easier
