They werent to bad, I had the BL so it made it easier. The bolts that go INTO the head fully came right out, the ones that just go thru the flange broke and had to be drilled. I used SS bolts when I replaced the gaskets. (make a note) ! hahaha

Sound difference depends on the brand.

Also, forget gaskets. Use high-temp silicone. I'll find the post that explains exactly what to do. That's a perk of being in Mustang forums.

I used the headman gaskets when I put them on, those were JUNK! they burnt up real quick. I then just put on factory manifold gaskets and no problems since.

I want Headers. And yes they make a difference in performance and sound when paired with high flow cats and a nice muffler

I've got JBA ceramic coated headers on mine, they made a difference but not huge. I do like them but they were expensive.
