I've only ever done simple maintenance work on my car (oil change, air filter change, etc...) and have swapped out a stock intake for an aftermarket - that's probably the most difficult thing I've done on a car.
Would you recommend that I attempt to switch to an aftermarket downpipe myself? I've been looking at tutorials and vids but they're mostly for older WRXs. On youtube there's a vid called "2011 downpipe install" but it's a short video of the guy just showing it installed on the car already.... really helpful...
I plan on getting (not sure if I will buy from RSD but just wanted to show exactly which items):
Downpipe: Invidia Downpipe Catted Divorced Wastegate Subaru Models (inc. 2008-2012 WRX / STI) at RallySportDirect.com
3in to stock catback gasket: http://www.rallysportdirect.com/Grim...u-Turbo-Models
Donut gasket: Subaru OEM Donut Gasket Subaru Turbo Models at RallySportDirect.com
Downpipe to catback gasket: GrimmSpeed Downpipe to Catback Gasket 2 Bolt 3 Inch at RallySportDirect.com (DO I NEED THIS?)
Do I need torque wrenches? Will just raising the front of the car up (using ramps) be enough to accomplish this job? Thanks for any info.
