not that hard at all to install them... i have a autometer install guide on here: Stealth Automotive Inc - Documentation

i say do it yourself.. hardest part is drilling and taping the manifold for the egt sensor.. and even that is not that hard....

i doubt ford would do it... and most shops charge around 250+ to install them
