Hey Windy, I check AM and they said shipment for BBK shorties would start late March. It's the 2nd week of April already lol! Have you heard if AM has them in stock?

I was planning on ordering the bbk LTs from AM today but they are out of stock so i gotta wait
How hard of an install is it to do yourself if you don't have a lift, anyone know?

I would say it would be pretty difficult. I've heard that installing them requires you to lift the engine a tad bit to get into the manifolds. I can only imagine how difficult that would be from the ground. Installing them yourself might be more time consuming and less $$$, but you'll have the experience at the end of the day. Is it worth it? I say it is. But if your kinda impatient, i'd bring it to a performance shop.

I don't mind doing the work and learning haha but if you have to lift the engine, I don't have a way to do that. Just from looking tho it seems like there is a decent amount of room. I have jack stands and ramps to lift it up some that way, I just meant I didn't have a lift.

I'm sorry I was looking a video and recalling it from memory. The video was for the 5.0 not the v6. So it would make sence if you didn't have to.

Update...called AM....looks like another 3 weeks on the ceramic coated ones.

On the good news side, all the intake side pieces for my project have arrived, and since I ordered my tuner from them and have free tunes for life, I ordered a set of tunes for just those parts. Now I just need some time alone in the garage!
