Default 2004 header installation questions?

I found a good deal on some Pacesetter LT headers online. How hard is installation of these headers? Will I notice any gains in power with these? Also, which gaskets and fasteners are recomended?

From what I understand one side is easier than the other with the install. It's by no means a cake walk install but it's not supposed to be the most difficult thing either. The problem may be removing the bolts that are holding on the current exhaust manifold. The gaskets you will need will either come with the headers or you ca just go out and get new exhaust manifold gaskets for $10 and you'll be fine. You will notice gains but how much depends own at you have done to you truck already. If you have a CAI and a freer flowing exhaust already that will definitely show you more improvement then just stock. I was planning on doing this install myself but I no longer have access to the shop I was going to use to get it done so now I'm gonna have to pay for them to be installed, which is fine since I'm redoing the entire exhaust lol

I currently have an Airaid CAI and custom flowmaster exhaust. Does anyone have any detailed instructions on removal/installation of the headers? Any pictures would be appreciated too!
