So after about 8 hours of doing the uppipe install I'm almost done the disassembly. Fml. Doing it by myself so that's no fun either. But the quitting point today was about after 40 minutes of trying to wiggle the uppipe out instill cant get it out. like the engine is in the way so maybe have to undo a mount and jack it up some. The hardest part so far is just trying to reach all the bolts and the stupid exhaust manifold heatshield is in the way. I think the install will be alot easier. These bolts were a pita to get off.

I usually loosen the engine mount and crank the motor up with my picker. You just need that extra 1/4" to get it out. The new one slides right in.
