The y-pipe is pritty straight forward, theirs 4 fuel lines you will have to take off the bowl and it has two bolts that go through to oil resivor that hold it on. Next is the oil resivor, it has 5 bolts that hold it down, you'll have to get a new gasket for here. Now you'll have a big hole in your front cover that has the drive gear for your HPOP, so don't drop anyting down the front cover or you'll have big problems, so stick a few rags in it. Next you have to pull the upper hose that goes up, across the top of the engine, out of the water pump.
Now, on the front cover their is a flat cap that has two 8mm bolts in it, and also has a sensor that is mounted to it that has a pipe attached that goes down to the right exhaust manifold. Take the pipe off the sensor first before removing the plate(you don't have to remove the entire pipe, only take it off the sensor). This will alow you to acess the bolt that holds the drive gear to the pump. Remove the bolt (carefull not to drop it down the front cover) and then remove the gear (you won't need a puller). Then remove the two lines off the HPOP, then remove the two bolts that hold in the pump the remove the pump.
As for if it's woth getting the line release tool or not, its up to you, I had one when i took one off but after I saw what it was, (after we were waiting for all weekend) you probably could do it with a screwdriver but IDK. Thier only like a few $ so it migh be worth getting one to be safe.
