woohoo!! got my borla exhaust today!!

as the title says, i got my exhaust today. i cant wait to have it installed. im thinking of gettin' up early in the morning and installing it before work. the thing is, ive never installed something like this and was wondering how hard it was and if there is any cutting involved. if anyone has a link of how to install a borla catback, it would help a lot. if it seems too hard, im gonna get my friend to call up a guy he knows to install it for me. but that wouldnt be till this weekend and i dont wanna wait that long.
