Honestly I would just like confirmation on what in entailed in the installation, because people aren't going to shell out $1,600 and another $500-$1,000 in labor if the heads need to be pulled and some trimming is required.. I would also like heat shielding...

Just heard a guy put headers on a Durango. His installer had to remove fenders and drop suspension to get manifolds on but he didn't say anything about trimming.

This is the type of thing that concerned me...It's one thing pulling apart an older car, but I have some real reservations concerning pulling the fenders off a brand new vehicle. The ends don't justify the means. What kind of increase are we talking about...maybe 20 h.p.?

Exactly why I think this is one purchase that I will not be making. the cost and the work to a brand new car, does not add up to a smart choice for me.

The GOOD: adding HP, changing the exhaust note and adding to the cool and Wow factor.

The BAD: Cost, disassembly of a new car, Additional heat, additional cabin noise.
