I did this once, biggest issue is the passenger side has no room to work. I couldn't get the EGR tube loose and ended up capping it of on the intake and header. This will give you a CEL once you start driving. A tune will fix that. I'd advise soaking it ahead of time, also I worked on mine 4 hours one day and 4 hours the next. I was working alone and zero exp

Won't be too bad. Just have time and take your time. My Mac short tubes came with copper gaskets, if yours did not I highly recommend getting some.

You'll need some extensions to reach the header to H-Pipe bolts, your going to want to soak those ahead of time if you can. Also new header bolts with the lock rings is recommended, I didn't have the lock rings and used blue loc-Tite instead and never had the backing out issue, I also checked the bolts once a day for a week. Header bolts are notorious for backing out.

I'm referring to the header to head bolts, but sometimes the header to H-Pipe bolts need re-tightening as well

I did with my headers, after a head swap, an exhaust leak it drove me crazy cause I thought it was Valvetrain noise, just retorqued them and haven't had an issue in months. After you get the new headers on let it heat and cool a few times then check torque on them enjoy your new sound!
