bought an ebay header...

I couldn't resist. I know they aren't a direct bolt on like the ads all claim. But for the life of me I can seem to find a single DIY or write-up showing where to cut the midpipe, pics or anything. Does everyone just drive to a muffler shop with open headers? Any help on this would be mucho appreciated.
