berk tech downpipe arrived !!!

Yep that's exactly what I'm saying. Thr nuts had to be pretty much all the way loose.

Note. This apparently took me 4hrs to swap. You'll need a swivel or knuckle socket to get to the stupid bolt directly beside the oil dip stick. It was such shit getting it on and off lol. Otherwise it was pretty easy after figuring out the manifold had to be moved. Clean the top of the manifold tho of rocks and crud cuz I had some fall between the gasket layers and now I've got a leak causing me to get mixed reading and making me run very rich

Worked on it for another hour today. Got the cat off, DP is still stuck. :bangshead:

How are you guys removing the studs with the DP still in position??? :shrug:

Looks like ill be doing the manifold loosen technique. Ill have to go buy a swivel socket to get that one bolt off behind the alternator like previously said.

Well atleast you got somewhere. Even if you would take the studs out it wouldn't help cuz by the time you got them
Out you wouldn't be able to get the bottom 2 out. If you can your a magician haha
