I'd like to get a read from someone who has installed the FMS ceramic shorties and how hard it is to get them on. My peference is to install them after I drop the engine in... or am I setting myself up for failure by doing so?

While you're at it, make sure you use Stage 8 locking header bolts and Earl graphite gaskets. You won't have to pull the header again until it rots.

Yep you CAN do after...buuuuut unless you have good reason not to I would install the engine with them on.If you are going to install the headers after make sure you install the headers on the engine once BEFORE you do the engine install so that you can correct any mismatched flange holes before you install the engine.You want to be able to start all the bolts with simple finger pressure.

and ditto what teamfour said.
