This is a very straight foward mod. A few bolts and the hangers and you're golden Brau....
Have fun.... Are you gonna do downpipe.

Find out if you want to stay catted or not and I believe the Helix catted downpipe is like $400 and the catless is $230. Seen the Helix flex uppipe and catted downpipe combo for like $520.

Catback install is nothing. If you know how to use a ratchet you are golden. A few bolts & nuts, some rubber hangers, and a clamp or two.

The only thing you'll have trouble with is the spring bolts that connect the catback to the downpipe. They can be a little stubborn.
