yeah its pretty easy I would say 3hrs or so by yourself less if you got somebody to help, unless you got an automatic then there are some issues you have to work around.

Its a 96 so no dual cats. I might have some hellp too. I was wondering how long it might take. I guess the other one i have is. Once its in is it any harder to get to the oil filter?

Depends. If you were in the habit of reaching through the fender, not really. If you preferred to reach up from underneath, yeah, it's a bit more dicey. You can still reach it, but will invariably have to rest your arm on the header itself, which gets more than a little toasty. So if you prefer to change oil when it's hot, and like to reach from the bottom, I'd reccomend investing in a heat sleave and glove or a really long socket wrench extension and oil filter socket.

I think I set a record after removing/installing my former POS Downey header so many times. My LCE install was exactly one hour from lifting the hood to firing it up.

I agree, if it's your first time installing, it'll take around three hours by yourself. It's not hard, just take your time and be careful.
2 if your buddy actually helps,
4+ if he is like any of mine and just stands around drinking all of your beer and constantly hands you the wrong sockets...:banghead:

*Edit* Get the LCE manifold stud kit, makes life a lot easier when you don't have to try and work around the factory hardware...

Yeah I could probably do it pretty quick now myself have had it all apart a couple times now.

But I was the opposite on the manifold kit the only thing I used were the nuts that came with it the studs I threw in the tool box. I reused the factory ones with no problem I removed them for slidding the header in and then reinstalled them.

x2 on the stud kit. That would have mad the whole thing a lot easier. But it is really easy especially with help. It really is a good product.
