The biggest issue with installing headers is removing the existing heat exchangers. Snapped studs are not uncommon if the exchangers have not been recently removed. Soak it all down good with your favorite penitrating fluid and have a torch and nut splitter handy.
Once the H/Es are off you want to loose-fit the new pipes before you tighten anything down. Turbo positioning is very important and often affected by headers. There are many things that hook up to the turbo so it needs to be the focal point on fitment.
