Got the factory downpipe out and the MBRP 3” Downpipe installed today. It sucked. Getting the dipstick in/out was a pain. I also haven’t ever removed my heat shield over the turbo, so I got it out of there. You pretty much have to destroy it. My band clamp was positioned on the bottom at the top of the downpipe, so I had to remove an electrical panel on the drivers side of the turbo to gain access to the band clamp bolt. All n all it’s just a lot of uncomfortable positions I had to contantly put my body in (like lying on the engine) and now it definitely hurts. Ha. But I got it finished! No leaks!
