FSWERKS stealth and header?

So I've been considering the stealth exhaust and the header. I was wondering how hard these two were to install? Is there anything that needs to be upgraded before these two are installed?

Ill be doing the stealth exhaust and then the header a significant amount of time later. (due to money)

Just want some opinions of ease of installation and any other insights.
Thanks y'all!

Its a fairley easy installation. You'll need a tune(ecm reflash) to turn off the rear o2 sensor & to make it run & perform better. Yea install the stealth & then do a header & tune later.

I have the FSW header and a Magnaflow exhaust. I had the exhaust fabricated and installed at a local shop for roughly $400. I installed the header with 2 buddies of mine with limited knowledge and tools. It's definitely a good set up if you like to take off on the highway.

I also have the magnaflow and fswerks header, as well as K+N intake, the car is WAY faster and more fun now... but you need a tune for sure, or an utter waste of time.

Intake, header and exhaust is only worth about 2 tenths in the quarter....

Header, cams and tune! Also supporting mods such as motor mounts, good tires and suspension go a far way.

It sounds great, Especially on Highway Speeds. Downshifts are awesome to the ears

I do have the rear engine mount it seems to help,

I have a lot of trouble believing it is only 2 tenths, I guess you mean before the tune, the car gets up to speed so much faster than at stock it is incredible.
