It's a bit more involved than that really. It's recommended that you unbolt the steering rack, then bend the heat shield out of the way so you have room to work with. If you have time and can afford a bit of downtime, do it yourself but otherwise I'd take it to a shop

Took me a bout 4-5 hours my first time. Now it takes me about 1.5-2 hours depending on the conditions of the car/clamps.
I could probably devote a Saturday to installing the DPs. When you say bend the heat shield, is this the heat shield by the front O2 sensors? Im not terribly sure what you meant by that. I know that the steering rack should be moved in order to better reach the front V-band clamps/02 sensors

If i decide to tackle this myself, what should i use to raise the car? I dont have anything currently, but i could borrow my friends jack and stands. Or should i invest in some ramps?
