you need a good 13mm line wrech to get the dpf sensors out, and maybe a torch to heat them up and free them up to come out, i had a hell of a time getting mine out but i got them. Also you might spray them with wd-40 or something before you start.

I just undid the wires for the sensors and did the sensors on the floor, much easier to get too. remove the back half of the exhaust first, get some help for the dpf and cat, its fockin heavy. put antisieze on the sensors in the new exhaust.

Socket extentions!! Where the pipe meets up with the down pipe is very tight. I know I had to put 2 extentions together at one point to get a good feel on the nut.

An impact makes the ball joint at the front of the DPF/DOC a WHOLE lot easier.

its not to bad. just get a creeper and you can rest it on your belly like I did Then when you get out of the hospital all that is left is the easy stuff. Also when you get the dpf out, bend the tabs out a bit on the exhaust because it is a fother mucker to get the new pipe in, at least for me it was. Good luck and enjoy
