    So I have all these brand new parts sitting at my house... and this is the week to install.

    -Doug Thorley long tubes
    -Jardine Cat back
    - TRD CAI
    - O2 Sim
    -Grillcraft

    Exactally how hard will the headers and catback be? I know it's all bolt up. I have minor technical vehicle skills. I can change my oil.... But any input or tips to make this as headache free as it can be? The grill craft and CAI will be easy I've done those before

    exhaust will be very easy! I installed my headers on a lift and it took me a hour and a half taking my time. I didnt do a O2 simulator but it looks pretty easy! The intake took me 20 mins

    Yeah it's not too bad, I recommend you hit the 02 sensors with some PB Blaster a few times the day before you go to take them out. There's a couple tricky maneuvers and some finagling but overall a couple hours should be enough time. Oh, and some anti-seize on the o2 sensors when you put them back in, careful with those threads! For the catback, hit the rubber hanger thingies with some WD-40 or something to lubricate them, it'll make life a hell of a lot easier.

    A fresh 6 pack will help things along too :)
