new goodies

i just cashed out and got super lucky. i just picked up a full 3 inch cat back exhaust, short ram intake, cobb turbo heat shield and a go fast bits manual boost controller. All for ONE HUNDRED DOLLARS!!!!! However the exhaust came with no gaskets and its in two pieces. I have the stock down pipe. What gaskets do i need?? Just a new stock one for the front and do i need to order a 3in gasket for the axle back or will the stock one work????

Its best to get new OEM gaskets. What brands are the intake and CBE? That will determine if you got a good deal or not. And ditch the MBC it's only going to hurt your car in the long run.

yeah i'm trashing the mbc. the exhaust is a Helix Power Cat-Back. Also the owner before me had a down pipe on the car but took it off when i got it. I was looking to install the turbo heat shield but i don't know where to bolt it too. Anyone have any pictures with there heat shield off??? Or directions on how to install this piece. I think that i'm missing some brackets....

Good deal man. Check COBB Forums they have a user manual you can download with instructions. I also have the COBB turbo heatshield. Its tough to actually describe where to bolts go (3). If you're standing on the passengers side of the car over the engine bay (Cobb name facing you on the heatshield) the first bolt you'll want to do is right near where the turbo connects to the Uppipe on the side closest to you. The next two are kind under the intercooler on the other side. I did those two by feel. It's only 3 bolts I'm sure you'll get it. That's the best I can do.

you can't really put the cobb heat shield on there if you still have your stock heat shield on there. You'll be thankful you got it when you replace your downpipe with something else though as the stocker will no longer fit and that cobb one will be much more obvious at filling in the whole where it used to be...

Absolutely you can it covers up less space then the factory heatshield and mounts in 3 factory locations. I would be shocked if it didn't work.

let me re-phrase: You ALREADY have a heat shield on there. The Cobb heatshield however is designed to work with aftermarket downpipes where the stocker will not fit any longer.

It is not needed with a stock downpipe because you can use the stock heatshield

Oh mosc then I misunderstood. If he wanted to put the cobb on he could, but you're right there isn't much of a point until you get an aftermarket DP.
