Job done. The manifold / cat assy. came out the top as expected albeit not as easily as I'd have liked. The heat shroud is the biggest hindrance to pulling it straight out, it's a tight fit to say the least, it took 15 minutes of wiggling, twisting and prying but we prevailed. The whole job took around 2.5 hours, that included welding in the new piece of flex.
Thanks again for the valuable advise.
