Use the search. You don't really need a how to, but there are a few how tos written already.

Just remove the stock slip on, I think it's only 5 bolts total to undo.

Remove the stock headers - 10 bolts (8 up front and 2 mounting)

Use vaseline to keep the gaskets in the engine block (not a joke, slather the outside of the gaskets with vaseline to keep them in there, otherwise will fall out)

Coat the MJS headers with anti-seize (just the ends that go into the engine)

Install new headers and torque bolts to 15 ft/lb.

Put slipon back on.

Drink some beer and admire your work.
