Uppipe Install?

I am about to purchase an uppipe, probably a Cobb or Helix. I was jus wondering if someone could give me an estimated time to do it, and some basics of what i have to do. And if any, warnings? I'd appreciate any suggestions. Thanks, Adam

well...heres how my installs have gone

The first one ever..about 12 hours of swearing and drinking...and a lot of bloody hands

The second...I was a little wiser from the first so it took about 3 hours

The Third...about 2 hours with frequent beer stops

The rest that I have done take between 1 1/2 hours to 2 1/2 ...depending on a lot of things...such as beer and women

If you can get it in the air it shoudnt take more than 1 1/2 hrs. Droping your exhaust manifold all the way out will help. Leave all the bolts loose untill youve got everything in place. And get some muffler cement.

I have found that taking the right side of the headers off and the downpipe off make things go a lot faster...that way you don't have to take the turbo and TMIC off.

Please share your secret method as I am doing this this weekend. I will have it on a lift and it looks like if I take the exhaust manifold off I can get to it pretty easily.

Take the manifold and DP off and the up pipe will come right out
