Most cat back systems come with instructions, and if you pick the right one it shouldn't take to much time to pry it on. I think mine took 30 mins to put on, and a big pry bar. You have to love those direct bolt on(LOL).Good Luck

yeah its pretty easy to do. depending on where you live and how old the car is, there might be some rust on the bolts so get some WD40 or equivilant. make sure you have a couple jack stands to get the car in the air. like he said, shouldnt take more than an hour. good luck. if youre still looking, check out Greddy or Tanabe

Get the cat-back, park your car, lift it up. Take some penetrating liquid and SOAK every bolt you are going to remove on the exhaust. let sit over night. Go out in the morning spray some more. Wait a few hours get you a ratchet, extensions, and socket. crawl under car, take out bolts, remove old exhaust. Install new exhaust starting from the header, or cat , TIGHTEN ALL BOLTS VERY GOOD. after 30 minutes to 1hour you are done!!!

It is not too difficult, the hardest part would loosing the catalytic converter bolts. I would spray a lot of WD40 before loosing the bolts.
