    Yeah, I think that the sensor on the uppipe is the EGT, not an O2.
    I'was able to wiggle my uppipe out the top on my wagon; on my sedan I had the turbo off, so it was easy to get out.

    You're going to have to jack up the engine to make clearance, I'm guessing.

    Ray is right, the O2 sensor is in the exhaust manifold, the sensor in the up pipe is an EGT sensor. I think that there's a panel in the wheel well that comes off that gives better access to the sensor
    I've heard that you can get the up pipe out if you bend the EGT sensor up against the pipe, then rotate it(the pipe) counterclockwise and back. Supposedly, it will come out without jacking the engine, but most people say that jacking the engine up is the way to go.

    The panel in the front right wheelwell does give good access to the O2 sensor that's in the manifold. Dunno about the EGT in the uppipe.

    Here's a link to the first post of this thread:

    Uppipe, Downpipe, Muffler INSTALL GUIDE!

    Click on that, then notice that each post by tubbytreats has a number in the top right corner. As you page down through this thread, you'll get to #12; that's where he talked about jacking up the car.

    On page 2 of this thread, there's a chart showing torque values. At least I think that's what you're asking. 28.9 ft-lbs for the header to head connection. 26 ft-lbs for other header connections. Make sure you're using decent gaskets.

    Sounds like the AC drain hose. If so, it often needs to be trimmed or relocated so it doesn't melt on the DP.
