    looks like a PITA job. the youtube videos always make it look so easy and are always missing a few key steps (i.e. removing the heat shield). if they videotaped it the FIRST time they did the job, it would scare people off from buying the pipe and installing it . not to mention all the swearing in the video.

    meh, i may get around to it at some point if i get bored and have a day to kill messing with my care when it's not so freaking hot out.

    Definitely gasket, probably at least one stud, plus one resistor. Buy PB Blaster and band-aids too.

    The GrimmSpeed kit comes with all the studs and nuts you need. Yes, you should purchase new gaskets for every location you open up. RallySportDirect.com also sells GrimmSpeed gaskets. Check out this thread for more good information: What is the best catless uppipe for a 2002 WRX?.

    No problem. Everyone starts out knowing little, so don't feel bad. That's what the community is for, sharing information and helping people with problems. Good luck with the project and remember to put the heat shields back on. They do more good than you think.
