Just replaced my up pipes

Wow i just did the bellowed pipes on my 02,, everyone made it sound like it was going to be hard.

I did remove the turbo and pedistal and left the 4" down pipe in place.

only tool i needed was a 1/4 drive ratchet with a 5/16 or 8mm socket. and my torqure wrench.

I cut the 4 bolts off the flanges at the exhaust manifolds and the doughnut on the pass side up pipe was real loose so i just lifted the y and driver side pipe up and out and after cutting the 2 pass side it came right out as well..

only real time consuming part was the pass side lower bolt which with the bolts only loose in the exhaust manifolds allowed the uppipes to move to where the ratchet was able to tighten a 1/8 turn at a time but did it never the less. I am not done as i am finishing the EBV delete so whould button it all up tommorow..

I was suprised as well at how easy my up pipe job went. The hardest part was putting the exhaust back together.
