I have done it. People say that it take 1 hour to do it. It took me three times as long even before I punched a hole in the pipe. But I got it done and welded up the hole and everything is good now. I have not installed it yet, but a guy dyno'd a gutted stock uppipe vs a high dollar aftermarket uppipe and they performed the same.

Use it or lose it!

I punctured a hole in the pipe with a chisel on accident, down by the elbow of the pipe. That is what I had to weld up.

Use it or lose it!
