Talking How To: Diamond Eye downpipe install

Just finished installing my downpipe . Took a couple hours to do it . The hardest part was dipstick tube nuts .

This is my first DIY post so bear with me .

tools I used
10 , 11 , 14 mm sockets , 3/8 air ratchet ,pb blaster , pry bar .

Remove passenger wheel and wheel well (fender liner)
take front pipe loose from down pipe . remove front pipe if possible i didnt
but would help . remove bolt on bottom of downpipe and 3 bolts in heatshield
loosen 2 nuts on dipstick most say remove dipstick but I didnt have to .
remove turbo heatshield , take off band from turbo to downpipe , wiggle downpipe from bottom may be stuck pretty good I had to spray top with pb blaster a work it back and forth a bit to get it out . sand turbo outlet to get rid of soot also sand downpipe where it goes into turbo put a little lube on it to get it in . install turbo clamp , bolt in bottom tighten dipstick tube , front pipe clamp . check for leaks . replace wheel well . and test drive . Wow it was worth it !!!

Nice DIY. If you do a few you will find great ways to position yourself to get the dipstick nuts and heatshield bolts off. i like to get right up in the fender well, lying on my back feet against the driver tire and push back and wiggle myself till im in sitting position against the passenger side tire. limited arm movement but u can pretty much get them all from there....
