X pipe install

Getting my bassani o/r x pipe this weekend. Want to do my homework and know what I'm doing to help prevent any mess ups or setbacks. Any pointers or important things to know? I will have access to a lift to make things easier.

The o2 sensors aren't that hard they just pop apart is this a shorty mid pipe or full cause if it's a full one the hard part is getting the front o2 sensors clipped back together just cause there isn't much room haha uh what I did was leave the sensors in the pipe then unscrew them once it's off the car and put then into the new pipe then install and. Reclip in the sensors

The passenger side nuts are gonna be a pain in the ass. I found it easier to take out my starter first and then try to take the nuts off. However the starter is a challenge in its own

I may actually end up having to have it shop done due to current circumstances. Any idea on average labor cost for a mid-pipe job?
