LT header project on a budget
So, I'm trying to get the logistics for a possible future header project on my 06 GTO. If it's possible, I'd like to keep the total cost under $700. Is this a realistic goal? I'll probably go with the pacesetter coated headers as the set of choice, and I'm going to attempt to install them myself. Is this realistic for someone with minimal mechanical knowledge/skill? I have to advantage of have access to a Navy Exchange auto hobby shop here on base, which has lifts, pretty much any tool I would need, and techs that can offer advice. My only concern is the tune that seems to be the bank buster. I was quoted 558 dollars for a dyno tune at a place called Dyno Tuned Performance in VA Beach, which honestly seems kind of excessive, especially since I was quoted 400 when I was in Pensacola Fl by another speed shop. Do I need a dyno tune? Would it be possible to get away with a mail order tune? Trying to get all this figured out before I dive in over my head.
