How hard is H-Pipe install??

I'm thinking about buying an O/R H pipe, and I need to know, how hard is the install? It's going on my 01 Cobra and I have the stock headers and stock h pipe on right now.

Only issue I ran into when I did mine was 1 bolt snapped where it connected to my header and it was time consuming to remove, otherwise should go smooth.

Oh ok. Cool. What all do you have to remove to get to it?

I'd be sure and soak the bolts down with some sort of penetrating fluid to help prevent from breaking them

Definitely soak the bolts down multiple times with PB blaster. You'll need some long ratchet extensions and a swivel adapter also to have the most clearance. It really isn't that hard of a job to do, just very tedious and you have to make sure you get it bolted up correctly to the manifolds or you'll have a leak and will have to start over. I've done that a few times haha.

Super easy! I've swapped out my midpipe about 3 times now and takes me about 15 min. Extensions and a swivel socket will make it much easier.

Thanks a lot guys. Sorry I disappeared. Lol. My SLP mufflers will be in soon, then I'll try to find a h pipe, then I'm buying a JLT CAI.
