Should I install with the stock shorties
installed or not?? I would prefer to install
after installing unless someone tells me that it will be a real pain.

I installed the engine with the stock exhaust on.

Also, the oil relocator and steering shaft were installed prior to engine install.

Either way will work.

Headers after can be done The bolts on the headers "CAN" be a real pain to deal with, especially drivers side rear.
The gang put my engine in with the headers (Shorty Unequal) on. In my opinion there is lots of room side to side for the headers during the engine install - it is getting the motor mounts and the transmission tail lined up that is a pain.

Go slow with a tilt bar :D
