Header install....how?

Hello im thinking of installing headers on my 07 base sky so far i have the GM Intake and was gonna install headers and maybe an aftermarket exhaust.

My question is when i get the header...how do i install it. Is this something fairly simple? I put the intake in myself only took me maybe an hour. what will this require is it just a simple bolt on, tighten enjoy?

RickyD - The link won't work for me either.
I bought the VDI hinges but not convinced yet I want to go that way.
Does it make it easier to get in and out of the car? I don't want to do it if it's not at least as easy as stock. I have big feet and have somewhat of a problem getting my feet out with the stock opening even when the door is fully opened. My garage is a little narrow so I can't open my door fully. I thought maybe if the door went vertical it might make it easier. Also, my wife has said she doesn't like the looks of VDI so I sure don't want to make it harder for her to get out.
I would appreciate your input - or anyone else that has experience with them.

I don't have them, but I've seen folks that do...

There are Pros & Cons for useability. The Cons (as I see it) are that it's a bit more cumbersome to open the doors, in that you have to open the doors conventionally a little way before you pivot them up. So they are NOT like lambo's etc, where they pivot up immediately. The other issue as I see it, is that you have to be really careful when opening/closing the hood, as it's really easy to smash the doors against the hood if you do one or other while the other is opening/closing.

Pro's are that you WILL find it easier to get your feet out and it's especially useful in a narrow garage (as long as you have the height available of course) where you can't open the doors normally all the way.

Yes if you're mechanically inclined you can do the doors your self. Lots of pictures and pointers on here just do a search.
