I've removed the heatshield, the lambda sensor and... the battery since it gave me the extra room i needed to twist the pipe out.
I didn't find swearing helpful.

Just one washer; i think it's there as reference to avoid overtightening, I've lost mine the first time i took the pipe off and i never felt the need to replace it
