Roush Axle-back install

Hey guys so I get my stang back from the shop either tomorrow or Monday andthe first thing I want to do is install my Roush exhaust. Im only 18 and I've never done one before so I was wondering how to install without taking the midpipe off. I've heard some things where you can lift up the back and undo the 2 clamps, pry off the tacweld and just install the new system but the instructions for that way are slim to non. So just looking for some install advice for my 2012 v6 Roush axleback. Thanks guys!

The best way to learn how to do it, is to do it. It's very easy. There are 2 bolts for the clamps and then all you have to worry about are the hangers. I find it easiest to take of the front clamp, two 13mm bolts per side. I could do a swap in less than an hour, very easy.

Doing axle backs is an easy job man. Just take your time and the good thing about doing that work on your car is you learn more about your car. I've done all my work on my car except for my gears and also doing the work yourself you will most likely do it better than any shop (learned this from prior experiences).

Back it up on ramps. Unbolt the stock exhaust clamps. It may also be easier to go ahead and unbolt the hangers from the car to get the stock pipes off, then reassemble in revearse order. It is a super easy job but plan on taking your time..2.5 hours by yourself first time.
You'll want a hammer to help coax things along too.

Always good videos on YouTube to help out if you need it also.
I never did any work on cars or my car until my axle backs. Year later I installed the boss manifold and h pipe. It's common sense know-how and a desire to learn, but videos are helpful

yeah, there's a great and funny video from a guy called 420powersports on YouTube and he installed ataks on his with a gopro strapped to his head the whole time. it's raw uncut footage and it's like an hour long, but i learned a lot from it. plus it's funny hearing him talk to himself and curse the mufflers off and stuff.. hahah good video, I suggest you give it a watch. I watched it like twice before I did it.

Getting extra clamps before you start is a good idea. After 50k mine looked to be in good shape but we broke one during the swap.

I followed the directions from AM and it was pretty easy.
