I'd like to add my experience.  About two weeks ago, I replaced 
everything from the downpipe back.  The best advice I can give you is 
to loosen the manifold from the cylinder head.  There are one or two 
of the manifold-to-downpipe bolts that are are bear to get to past 
the oil pan, even with the universal socket.  They're MUCH easier 
with the manifold pulled away from the head.
