Re: Exhaust replacement on 1985 Mustang GT.....How long should ittake?
Just doing headers on these cars can be a bear, wven with a lift and
the proper tools. I can think of a number of occasions that headers on a
5.0 car took me 3-4 hours alone (DIY'er, lots of tools, no lift).
Disconnecting motor mounts and steering rag joints is not uncommon to
get the headers in (1 5/8 vs 1 3/4, equal length, etc).
So say 3 hours for headers, and 3-4 hours for the rest (guessing). Do
you want a good job, or a rush? With coffee, pee breaks, phone calls,
interruptions (from you asking when car will be done) and answering
questions from other guys in the shop, its a day.
