Up Pipe Replacement.

Well the time has come to replace my up pipes. I have been putting it off because of how much of a hassle I have been told it is. I have found a write up for the SD but not the OBS, does anyone know of one? I know I have read some say drop the trans and others say to leave it in, some say pull the turbo and others say not to. I am not against doing one or the other these I would prefer not to pull the trans if it's not neccaseary. If anyone has and tips please let me know. I am going to do this in the next week or so.

if you dont run into seized bolts you could try lowering the back of the tranny to give enough clearance.

Ok. I soaked the bolts with PB Blaster last night and will continue to do so every few days. I am planning on doing it in about a week from now if time permits so I figure the more I let them soak the better.

I'll be sure to let you know how it works out for me. I foresee a few busted knuckles and a lot of creative language in this project haha

Subscriped, I'm also looking to do up-pipes as soon and as time allows. My driver side manifold is worst leak at moment, hoping to try just replacing the manifold first without having to meds with the pipes
