    what type of long tubes ?

    judging that the car is cool and you have a sawzall...about 4 hours-6 ....i did it in my grand fathers garage with jacks...sawzalled that bitch y pipe ....dont even bother with trying to get the bolts off...just remove the coils!! and the wires and the plugs..remove the oil dip stick and the header bolts (a 10mm ratchet wrench will help on the rear header bolts) then your in the clear...try to get the headers as vertical as possible..didn't take that long at all.

    oh and i almost forgot!!! start the car up and drive it a little open headers! this way you can make sure everything works and clearences are ok..before you bolt the rest of the exhaust on

    i used a sawzall (that was a lifesaver) and a torch. for some reason i couldnt get the factory y pipe off of my catback and i didnt want to cut that obviously. i heated the shit out of it.

    start to finish on a lift 4 hours if everything goes easy... like stated above, factory y can be a pain and depending on what headers you buy.... some are harder then others to install
