I am looking into a catback systems with headers. JBA or Zoomers, I like both but maybe some opinons will help. Also i was reading some stuff about installing Headers. HAHA i have nooooooooooooooooo mechanical expiernce at all, Me with a wrench is like a monkey with a gun. IF or when i purchase headers would it be better/smarter for me to have a shop install for me. Any input will help

What motor do you have?

I only ask because if you have a 6.1, the short-tube header is not worth it because the 6.1 manifold is basically the same. The 5.7 stock manifold is worthless and upgrading to a short-tube header is a BIG difference. I went with Gibson shorts because I live in California (emission laws) and ground clearance considerations (longs tend to hang a little lower and I like my car low). I also did high-flow cats and a Corsa cat back.

Both motors benefit greatly from long-tube headers.

If you are not mechanically inclined, don't even hassle it. It's not that tough, but it is time consuming and there are some tricky bolts to get to.
