Once you get under there and look at it then look at your new cb, it's a simple puzzle.

I did a complete exhaust swap. Mid pipe and brand new cat back and took me right at 2 hours. I didn't snug the bolts up until everything was where I wanted it. The pipe that goes over the axle is very close to the car body and it was very tight

Yeah I done my catback a few months before I done my mid pipe. When I put my mid pipe on I just left everything on lol.

A lift helps immensely if you have access to one. As does a friend who works for beer. Just plz don't drink too many beers installing the pipe and then have no ride home from the lift lol.

Where'd you guys get your lifts? I gotta jack, stands and two ramps. Will that be enough clearance for a first timer easy install??

I got my lift at an auction for 3k. Definitely worth it if you use it. And yes you can do it with jack stands but make sure it is very secure

I'm military so when I did my last exhaust I just drove the car to the auto shop and used one of the lifts there or you can buy a lift and have it installed.

To answer your question, you can do an exhaust with a floor jack and jackstands honestly. It really is self explanatory. Only thing ppl seem to have trouble with is the outboard nut on the H pipe collector. Deep well won't fit in there with a swivel and a regular socket is not deep enough. Solution is a standard depth 1/2" drive socket which is deep enough to get the nut but not too big to not fit in there.

I know some say when installing a new exhaust you need to tighen the bolts then take it for a drive to warm up then bring back jack back up and repeat the process a few times. Is that really necessary? How do shops do it without needing to test drive and retighten?
Thanks.

I'd go over it all again honestly. Just get it hot for a few cycles and go back under and tighten them all up, it'll take all of 30 minutes to do it including jacking the car up and down. I personally have not seen my H pipe loosen up much if at all but it can happen. Like I said that's mostly headers where the exhaust loosens up.

As for shops, they install the stuff and cut you loose. Not their problem after that.

No, a few heat cycles, like go drive it wherever, let it cool all the way off, do it again, maybe a third time and then go back under and check all hardware for tightness.

You need to cut down a deepwell socket to fit in there OR get a 1/2" drive adapter, 1/2" drive swivel, and 1/2" drive socket. The 1/2" drive is big enough to get a bite on that nut but small enough to fit in there.
