Alright, I got the rest of my TBE back from the coating shop. My ? is can I put my 3rd cat delete and my mid pipe on with out putting the Downpipe on.But I would like to put the 3rd cat delete and the midpipe on.

I don't have time today to take off the topmount and the heat sheild and fuss with trying to get the DP off. Is it possible to get it off DP off really easy from the underside if I have a lift and airtools or is it going to be just as big of a pain in the ass.

If I do just do the other two pipes, can I just leave the car Stage I and drive it like that for a little while till I have time to do the Downpipe or should I just leave it all off till I have time to do the whole thing.

Thanks for the help everyone.

Yes! I actually did it without taking off the TMIC, you're lucky to have air tools, the biggest PITA was takign the heatshield off. Other than that if you soak the DP bolts and nuts with some PB uninstall should be a breeze. The whole process for me took three hours, but that's with just hand tools. The second time I installed a different downpipe, taking the whole thing out just took less than an hour. Hope this helps!

i took off my IC but then its not necessary, it was annoying putting my IC back on too. you have the tools too, so it shouldn't be too hard.

alright guys thanks for the help. I know I talked to some people and they say take the intercooler off, but I really really didn't want to have to do that. I think I may see if I can give it all a go tomorrow.

Woohoo, i hope I havre some free time tomorrow. I can't wait to go Stage II
