DP install today/stg 2

Well this morning I woke up extra early 730 so I would have plenty of time to install the dp and be ale to leave for class at 1215...I didnt go to class!! It took me roughly 5 1/2 hours to do the install thanks to one of my exhaust bolts that stripped (hour 1/2) and my intercooler not wanting to go back in (hour 1/2)...and multiple frusterating smoke breaks. I did it though and by myself. Man did it suck. I HATE working on cars, but I LOVE CARS....flashed stage 2 w/ ap and off I went to taco bell. Sounds awesome, drives awesome. I'm in love. There is some rattling from the exhaust somewhere underneath the car but I'm sure it just needs minor adjustment.

Setup now

Invidia G200 CB
Invidia cattless bellmouth DP (not divorced wg)
SPT intake
Cobb ap stg 2 93 oct
Autometer ultra light gauges (boost/oil pressure)

Lovin it. Z

the rattling is most likely the dp hitting the trans crossmember.

I did the same install last week. I rattle too. I think its the metal hanger from he car that connects to the DP. That's what my friend said that has an '04. He said his is rubber. I'm not sure. It's hard to hear when that sexy turbo spools.
I ran into a problem when I was unbolting the the stocker and my turbo bolt came off. The guy that removed the DP on an earlier install stripped the bolt. I ordered a new one from Subura($13). Anyone know if the bolt screws back into the turbo or do I need a special tool?
