Only asking this stupid question because I live in an apartment complex and I need to know what I am getting into so I can expect how much of the exhaust I need to take apart (and how much extra dealer hardware - nuts, bolts, gaskets) I need to order.

Question of the day: Is there enough room to get the passenger side exhaust manifold off (with studs still on the engine) or do I need to drop the Y pipe as well?

I vaguely remember removing the passenger side exhaust manifold on my 3.5l SR I had a while back to get to the freeze plug inderneath it and I don't remember dropping the entire y Pipe.

Any insight you guys can give would be much appreciated so I know what to expect.This is on my 1999 3.5l SOHC engine.

With the center crossover pipe disconnected, it allows enough room to wiggle the manifold out past all the studs. I cannot wait for this to be done. Notice the full Crack all around the manifold.
