Don't worry, they aren't really that bad to remove, at least mine. Be sure to spray the bolts up with a penetrating oil on the up pipe collector. Also a 10mm ratcheting wrench that reverses is a must, I made that mistake. I got a wrench stuck on the rear passenger side pedistal bolt, got the wrench on and as I took the bolt out, the wrench wedged itself between the up pipe and the turbo. The most time consuming part was getting the wrench off.

I have only done mine once and I bet I could of had it out in an hour and a half. Getting the wrench stuck made it a lot longer. The right tools makes a huge difference.

Yeah its not too bad of a job, just a little tricky finding the right angle to get to the bolts. Soaking them in PB blaster in advance is key.
