    its easy....jack up the car by the diff...make sure you but a rag on the jack....then lace ur jack stands..then unbolt the catback...its easiest w/ a closed wrench and ratchet...youll prob reuse the doughnut gasket and the spring bolts too....i would def use silicone lube to help get the exhaust out of the hangers

    ive installed that exhaust before. i think its mine

    jack up car by rear diff and put 2 jack stands under the rear for safety

    make sure the exhaust has a chance to cool down first

    make sure your e-brake is on, car is in gear and place a piece of wood infront of one of the front tires just in case the e-brake fails.

    remove the 2 14mm bolts using wd-40 or liquid wrench - more the better

    spray wd-40 on the exhaust hangers and remove the stock exhaust

    now those damn springs.

    you can either cut them in half to get teh exhaust to fit or not use them. I cut my springs in half to get the exhaust to fit. I dont know if there is a better way...be carefull when cutting them.

    you have to do this because o the thickness of the flange on the catback.

    put the midpiece up first in the hangers. no gasket is need between the cat and the pipe.

    then bolt it in tightly but do not over torque

    then place a gasket between the muffler pipe and mid then bolt the 2 14mm pipes together

    wallaa....vroom

    listen for exhasut leaks...loud high pitched sound

    you got one damn sexy exhaust

    now retorque the bolts after about 100 miles

    enjoy


    or jsut pay a muffler place or local garage 50 bucks to do it.
