LOL !
I knew exactly what you were going to say when I ready the subject.

It's a bitch. a helper is the easiest way, one holds the head in place, the other guides the dam dipstick in the block, while the other
says "Hurry, this bitch is getting heavy"

The adjustable on is nice, it can also be put on seperate from the heads.

mine came in a few days also...summit is pretty fast. Do you have billet underhood dress up pieces because this Lokar piece is very nice and will add to the look.

i didnt unbolt the exhaust headers when i pulled the heads. i took them off with the heads. the dipstick runs through the headers and through the engine mount. so its a pain the dick to get through those places with the heads already on. you got to at least have another person to guide the dam thing in the hole while you lower the heads into place.

the problem i had was the dipstick tube broke when i was trying to get it in...i was alone so that may have made it worse...The Lokar makes life easy.
