It's not hard, just time consuming. You've got to move a lot of wires, connectors, etc. out of the way to do it.

As for where to buy:

www.manciniracing.com
www.krcperformance.com

Both of them usually have a good price. I'm partial to KRC because I can always count on Marty to help me troubleshoot any problems.

I was gonna have someone do it for me , but he blew me off. I was a little scared but I just dove right in.

Took me 8 hrs to do it over 2 days.

Most important parts are:

Cleaning off old gasket material and making sure it doesnt go into the lifter valley or the intake ports of the heads.

And the torque pattern and specs of the intake bolts.

Just take your time and mark everything where it went when you take it off and you`ll do fine. Very rewarding.

You can do it !

Where do you live maybe you could find a local truck owner to help you out. It's not hard but there are a few important steps that must be taken to insure it doesn't leak. Your welcome to email me if you need any help.
