Yes...

Not to bad of a job. Took me 3 days, working from 8-11 after work, and a lot of screwing around.
Plus day 3 was because my y pipe bolts were too short.

Definitely do it yourself, rather than pay out the ass for a shop to do it.

About the same for me. A few words of advice...

1. PB Blaster
2. Bent head flex rachet $6 from harbor freight (A Must)
3. Get good gaskets and be sure to use some silicone.
4. Extra pair of hands is necessary.

Installation wasnt bad for me. Took about a week but I had crap for tools and lack of knowledge. Did as much research as I could befor though, went ok. As for the product, I had to buy longer bolts for the y-pipe-header flanges, the black paint coating burned off 5 min after starting, lol and in the instructions it should say weld only and nothing about clamps.. tried clamping and it just blew it off when I steped on it.. shortly after a cop passed . And Egr didnt fit right. Otherwise good product.

Well I just installed my motor and put the pace setters in, they bolted up good egr fit, the big problem was the y pipe, I had to beat and bang on it to fit and im still not happy with it, and its really gonna suck to have to replace starters, haven't figured that one out yet, could have been way better designed. Thanks guys at pace setter yall gave me a headache

That seems to be the problem with most of the 3.4 ones, I had the egr problem but fixed it and have had these things for 2 years now with no issues.
