LB7 Downpipe Installation Questions

I am looking at buying the new MBRP Downpipe for my LB7 and was wondering how much work is actully involved in relocating the trans dipstick tube and any other issues that any one has had along with issues installing the MBRP 5in straight pipe exhaust

Thanks,
Andrew

there are two bolts that hold the dipstick in place... all you have to do is loosen them, not take them all the way out. not really that hard. (well, that stop of the procedure isn't hard... lol )

are there any issues with heat since i assume it will rub on the downpipe a little?

Nahh, no fluid in there, and it rubs on the downpipe where mine had insulation wrapped on it.

The MBRP instructions say you can use washers to space it out a bit. I just bolted mine back in then pushed on it a bit to give it about an inch or so of clearance
