Default Downpipe install?

Has anyone changed one, any advice? Looks to be a challenge. I am planning to do one next week.

Well if you're doing it in your garage, I'd say to remove the heat shields off the up pipe and downpipe, your trans dipstick and be prepared for a tight squeeze. It's fairly straight forward though. Good luck!

The damn bolts are tight and yes I had to hammer mine out

I used the stock jack to get some of the bolts loose as there is no room to get any leverage

Haha I used a ratchet strap hooked to the support brace by the fuse box. Sometimes a little rigging works best!
