Down Pipe Removal

Could one of you guys tell me how to get the down pipe out........? I cut it about a foot up from the lowest bend and no matter which way it twist or turn it will not come out.

It took me almost two hours to get that bugger out. I cut the bands and removed almost all of the insulation. There is the end of a screw/bolt that comes through the side of the firewall/fender that kept poking holes in the insulation and holding the pipe in. Then, looking up from underneath, I twisted the turbo flange end to the left and was able to finally get it out. It still took some muscle. It looks like you should turn the flange to the right but it catches on the lifting bracket.
Good luck!

Mine came out in less then 15 minutes that is including the time it took to disconnect it from the turbo and cutting the pipe from the rest of the exhaust.

Did you remove the rest of the exhaust yet. If not that does help. It took me and my buddy less then 30 minutes to remove the full exhaust system. All we used were the correct size sockets 3/8 drive impact and a sawzaw with a new blade.

Thanks for all the info! I did get it out..... Did not get the new exhaust installed. After assembly before tightening down I could not get the Down Pipe flange past the turbo housing flange. I need just 1/4 in to get by it. Any body else have this problem. I was thinking of dropping the Trans Cross Brace to see if I can get the clearance I need.
