yeah. I forgot what it's called. I think they call it an ignition coil cover in the bentley manual. Also, you don't need to remove the mounts. You will have more than enough clearance working underneath and above the car to get to all the nuts. An extra set of hands wouldn't hurt in guiding the socket onto the studs.

Make sure you have gaskets for the lower flanges or remove the exhaust if you want to reuse them. They will get banged up if you try to remove the manifold with the exhaust on. How are you going to bolt up with the MMW headers?
Slip on 2.25"
x-pipe 6" past headers
mandrel bends where secondary cats would be
magnaflow 5x8 dual in/out tru-x muffler where resonator is now
dual exit the rest of the way back.

Similar to what an e36 m3 exhaust looks like except muffler further up the line.
