Some downpipe installation advice

I decided we need a thread to make this more simple. Once everything is unbolted and you take the clamp off the turbo and let the factory down pipe fall. Let it fall as far as you can. Make your cut 5 1/2" above the top most most of the large kink. I use a 18 tpi blade 8" long and cut at a 45deg angle. Once cut you push the left over piece up and rotate it , it will then drop right out. The transmission dipstick does not need to be removed. This took me about an hr with a lot of breaks in the middle because my driveway is not soft after a hard days work. Here is a few pics to show the cuts. On installation of the new pipe slide the new pieces together before you bolt the top piece to the turbo.

Wear safety glasses you don't want all that metal in your eyes.
