Pictures, as requested;

Starting from stock setup

Brian (tiresmoker) grinding off the stuck flexpipe bolts...

...and living up to his reputation as gasket-breaker

Action shot: EGR tube being ground off of stock header

Our method for securing the passenger-side nut...wiggle extension, regular extension, 90* adapter and deep-well socket

Finishing up...header and dipstick installed

The finished product

The more I think about it, if we would've been able to get that rear mount to come off we probably could've tilted the engine back to get the headshield on. Too bad the bolt holding it to the subframe was as rusty as the rest of the car...
