you want to do this during warm weather, or at least in a warm garage.  i 
tried to do it when it was about 20 degrees outside and broke a couple 
plastic clips.  annoying.

Also, getting the 02 sensors off can be difficult. you'll want a snapon 
crowsfoot 02 sensor socket or MAC tools, etc. point is, no junk.  I broke 
the first one in 30 seconds, then followed up with a snapon unit.

heat is nice for gettign those off too, if you have a torch (and know how 
to use it) that's ideal.

I was doing mine on jack stands on the garage floor. it's not exactly
