Default Header installation?

I have a set of headers to install on my truck and I also have a Vararam intake currently on my truck. I just purchased an S&B cai and will be replacing the Vararam with it. Would it be easier to install the headers with the Vararam on as opposed to the S&B since the S&B takes up so much space beside the engine. I`m going to get a shop to do it and I don`t want to pay extra for them to have to move stuff out of the way and the Vararam leaves easier access to the headers from the top if needed.

almost 99% of the Header install "should" be through the wheel well
(removal of front tires and fender liners required) and from the bottom.



Only thing I needed to pop the hood open for was to disconnect the battery

I gotta agree with BRH for the most part,i have the S&B intake, i know on my 2005 that the intake bolts to the wheel well liner. That being said it took literally 3 minutes to remove that bolt and and then everything else was done on the underside.

Exactly what those two said. Having said that, I'd leave the vararam on for the install JUST IN CASE the shop needs to remove the S&B for whatever reason. Just makes is easier, and they can't charge you an extra half hour or so.

Just my opinion.
