    Does it have headers or manifolds?

    Long tubes are a huge pain to remove/install with the engine in. Pull the hood and there should be some lift points to strap the engine hoist to.

    I'm not sure if they are all the same but I had to use like a 21mm plug on my 2003 Cobra, got it from a plumbing store.

    ^I think I found a NPT acorn nut at the Depot that fit perfect. I was walking around isle 8 with an exhaust manifold lol
    Get a buddy to come over and take your time when you drop the new one in.
