2001 Mustang gt... getting stroked, help with install.

I am a rookie at all this car stuff. I have pulled the eninge at desrcibed in the haynes book. I was wondering if anyone has installed the new header before dropping the engine back in. I know there has to be an easier way. PLEASE, give be some tips.
Also, anyone ever installed the saleen stroker kit, if so was it worth it. I have gotten SO many different opinions.

Headers are a lot easier to install with the engine out of the car. True.

Stroker kits CAN give a mild bump up in displacement and power. True. Mind you, the gains are relatively small compared to other engine families that allow for larger displacement gains.

I'm not familiar with a Saleen stroker kit. Sorry.
