    You can use your stock starter, if you are installing these headers yourself the best way is to loosen up the motor mounts and transmission brace and jack the motor up, it makes it a lot easier.

    I was told, if you follow there diections you will have no problems, i don't think the motor has to be too high, just enough to get them by...
