    Anyone have suggestions on who to use for Fabspeed header install on a 430?
    What should I expect for reasonable cost? I was thinking $1000 ish?

    I called FMS and he said to just bring it in and would not really get into detail or pricing over the phone.
    Any other shops would be appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.

    There’s a place right behind Luxury Auto Collection (I’m talking a few steps away)that works on all of their cars. The place seemed clean and the owner knowledgeable. Not sure what they would charge. I’d say $1,000 is about right, give or take. Header replacement is pretty straight forward so you may be able to find some one to do it for less at a non exotic Indy shop.

    The issue I had was getting the better known shops to install Fabspeed. The two best known in my area would only install original/Tubi/Capristo. I got the Fabspeed set with the blankets and they’re currently being installed.

    Installing headers with the engine in the car can be tricky. There is not standard time frame to complete this type of install since most headers are installed with engine out.

    Since you want to install the headers, price should be secondary to the the quality of personnel working on the car and knowledge to install the components correctly.

    FMS installed my AP headers which are essentially the same as Fabspeed, I’ll have to pull the old receipts to see what they charged me. I remember it being very reasonable, less than what I thought. BTW the Fabspeed/AP headers slip right in without having to remove anything off the engine or loosen the engine mounts.

    Nice, I remember speaking to you at cars and coffee. I copied your system. Fabspeed and sline, stock cats. Sounds awesome.
    Fms got back to me and said 950 which I thought was very fair. Figured I would get annual done at the same time.
    Dyno comp is at $575 but I rather go with a Ferrari Mech. See you at the next c & c, since the weather is finally breaking.

    The headers are currently still living room decoration. Shooting for next week to get them installed as I have been slammed with clients. I am going to have FMS in fountain hills do the install and get my annual done as well. I'll keep you posted as to the outcome.
