Jack up the car and put it on stands, follow the midpipe up and u will see the flanges, spray them with WD40 or Liquid Wrench. Then just unbolt it. Pretty straight forward bro

The only bolt-on h-pipe I've found is the one from Lethal Performance, but it's for stock manifolds/shorty headers.

When I wrapped the chrome I managed to destroy my push to start.
I bought a new module for $20 and that didnt fix it.
I must've either pulled out a wire somewhere, or really f**ked it up :p

Everything from underneath with the exception for the upper bolt that connects the manifold to the midpipe on the passenger side

I would advise to use liquid wrench, its like WD40 but penetrates alot more and quicker on rusted on bolts. I sprayed all my bolts when i did my header install and waited 10min for them to soak and all my bolts cane off easy. Even my header bolts. It really does work well for me.

A tip for the OP

Rent an o2 sensor remover tool BEFORE you get started

Just be carefull while removing the bolts
I went ham on one and made a little spark, it's scared the sh*t out of me, because I used wd-40
Also
Remie the negative battery cable, when you get ready to remie the o2 sensors
