Installed Gibson headers on '04 Chevy 1500 5.3liter was not fun at all. My advise is let a muffler shop do it. They don't charge that much and they have all the tools to get the job done.

I installed Pacesetter headers and a Gibson single catback exhaust on a 1995 Dodge Ram 1500 that I had until I got a 2001 2500. The cat back helped, but the headers took away some of my low end torque. It realy ran good in the upper RPMs, but that is not where I needed the power and torque pulling the 30 ft. Mallard I had back then. I put them on myself and it was a hard job. You need a lot of paitence flexability and ingenuity to install headers.
If you can get a set that is designed for low end torque it might be worth it, but most are designed for higher RPMs for drag racing.
It takes a lot of money on a gas engine to get a litle bit of extra power, but on a diesel it takes a little bit of money to get a lot of extra power.

Gibson (they went into business making exhaust systems for MoHo) makes a complete set from headers on back, designed to enhance the V10. I've installed headers etc. on several cars and one truck for drag racing and yes they work best in the upper rpm's, but the Ford V10 makes its power up there..So should be a good marrige. I was just wondering about a MoHo as far as working under it..
Thanks for the replys Guys,, Ted O.
