no, you don't have to remove the engine/tranny for headers or y-pipe. if you looked under and around the engine bay you'de understand why. and why bother with a mechanic... especially since you say your going to pull your engine for your SVT heads, do it all at once, and do it yourself

call a reputable shop, they will have a mitchell guide which should tell them what they need to know.. if they have to ask you how to do it ..then you would be better doing it yourself..

I gotta be honest here....if your "mechanic" has seen your car, he should be able to answer that question himself. I am VERY leery of any mechanic that asks his client questions. He is the expert, he should know the answer.

The only problem you'd have if you did it yourself is rust, if your car is older, like a '99. I couldn't even install my exhaust myself because the old exhaust was rusted solid to the cat converter.

you should do it yourself, its not that hard.
im sure theres someone in your local chapter thats mechanically inclined, that would help.
