header install

If I just want to install a new header on my 08 L61 manual, could I just do the whole install from the top or would I still have to go through the bottom of the car?

Only need to access the bottom to attach the header to the dp. The bolting of the header can be done from the top.

When I was thirteen I used a suicide jack and put my legs under the vehicle that had no wheels on it. The jack came crashing down and it was a good thing my legs were in a dip in the mud because it was a e-350 van so it would've crushed them. It fell in less than a second.

Definitely use a good jackstand because it will fall way faster than you can get out from under it.

We used to use those jacks to put tires on rims. I remember doing that on my Cuda, jacking up the car was sketchy though
