    Performance parts install

    Hey guys I just purchased some headers (1 3/4) for my VE 6.0, which should bolt directly on to my 2.5" xforce catback system. Was wondering if anyone knew of a decent workshop/mechanic who installs aftermarket parts for a reasonable price and quality. Located in Western Sydney, cheers.
