Header swap experience

Anyone in the Norfolk/ Va beach area with experience doing a header swap that can offer assistance or place to do said swap?

I have a lift on base but the hours won't allow me to do the whole job in one shot and anyone that I could have to help would have to be vetted by the hobby shop here first.

Will pay with money or beer/pizza for anyone interested and able to help me with the install.

I have a set of CSP headers that I'll be installing once I get them back from precision powdercoating for thermal coating.

Here! Did mine in my garage over a long weekend though. CSP headers as well. I'm in Chesapeake but if you need anything I'm typically available. DM me if needed.

I would gladly take the help. I have a full AWE Touring exhaust, and I'm pretty confident that things should mate up when the headers go on. Not sure if you did it by yourself but I feel like it could be done in one day if two sets of hands were working on them.

I'll get in contact with you when I have them back in my hands. Thanks for the quick response.

Very much appreciated man. I do a lot of travel between Norfolk and New York City where my wife and kids are. So I understand fully.

I did mine over a 96 in the garage. There are some tight areas for sure but if you have all the needed tools then it can be done in a day easily. It's probably harder getting the stock parts out.

Hope the AWE mates up perfectly, if not there's a muffler shop down the road in Great Bridge. They do great work and don't charge an arm and a leg to make some minor adjustments to the pipes.

I have a friend that stays in Suffolk off of 58 and plan on getting that done at his place in two weeks.

I hope to not be driving with open headers for a bit but if it happens then I'll just enjoy it until I can get things welded up.

What's the name of the muffler shop?
