    Welcome to the Forum, nice car.

    Well thank you sir!! As soon as I can actually get it inspected I'll be quite happy about it! I thought I was preeeetty good at cars but I underestimated how much more complicated this turbo setup is than my old jeep....haha

    EDIT: Actually you might be able to get away with starting at removing the bolts from the turbo to the dp as you do not have a heatshield over your turbo, I can see in the picture.

    I found an 02 exhaust in the for sale section of this forum. I couldn't find anything on google telling me if an 02 exhaust will fit on an 03.

    If so, will I need to get anything to mate the dp to my turbo? Or just to the rest of the exhause behind my dp?

    02 and 03 year models are identical, so yes, it will fit





    You should get replacement gaskets so it doesn't leak.
