hi,

this is not a bad job to do actually. i would allow yourself a good few hours for this although its just a case of removing the lamda sensor (22 or 24mm spanner/socket?) undo the 3 bolts on the flange to the cat and then unbolt the manifold from the cylinder head. i cant remember what sizes the bolts are but an average spanner set will do for this.

just remember to replace the gaskets :)
