the sun beating down on me giving me a splitting headache and me getting frustrated and extremely tired.

My head is still killing me and so is my back. If those manifolds come off,someone will have to take them off or they will fall off
I did mine in the middle of the summer out in the open with no benefit of shade

Putting on pems is something everyone should experience at least once
I came in after fighting that heatshield for about an hour and did a search for PEM installation and got linked to that post. It was at that point that i new it was a PITA for everyone and no just me. Wasn't exactly the quick fix reply i was expecting lol.
I installed my P-log in less than 45 minutes!!! The heat shield wasn't much more than a 5 minute problem.... Having no radiator or AC condensor made for a much easier job.

It really all comes down to how much space you have to work.
