LF DIY front pipes/X pipe removal?

Hey i have been searching for a e92 m3 x pipe removal. I was wondering if i can do this myself i have a full x pipe primaries and secondaries gone along with resonators, and i wanted to install it this weekend. But have been searching for a DIY and have had no luck. Let me know if you guys think i should try this or if there is a DIY i planned on using jack stands.

It's pretty self-explanatory once you look under there. Two bolts each side for the manifolds, pull the o2 sensors, unbolt the bracket in the center holding up the x-pipe, unbolt the x-pipe from the mufflers.

I don't know your experience level so it would be hard for me to guess a time, but I think it's definitely doable with two people although you'll need to get all four wheels off the ground and fairly high to allow both of you under there to work on it. Without a lift, stands are really your only option. If your car is too low for ramps, you can always get a couple of pieces of 2x6 to get the car a bit higher before it hits the ramps.

Decently well experienced. I think that i may buy some rhino ramps for the car and 2x6 wood to get the car higher might work... Not sure looking to get this done friday i will take pics if i decide to do it!
