    Fairly easy job to do, hardest part is getting the old exhaust off.

    Jack the car up and support on axel stands or buy some ramps, use wd40 on the joints to get the old exhaust off, undo bolts thats connecting the exhaust centre pipe to manifold (if a full system). should have the oldun off then, reverse process putting the new one on.

    Not if you don't want to, but if you want to get the full benefit, then yes.
