Wish i had done mine when i installed my 38R.
Installed my International pipes last weekend. Toughest part was removing the old ones where they mount to the manifold on the passenger side. The top bolt stripped on me so i had to weld it to the flange so it would not spin on the back side. Ended up just snapping the bolt cause the nut was seized on there. I took a torch to the bolts before trying to loosen in hopes they would get soft and break. My idea worked great, about half a turn on the bolt and they would snap.
Driver side was a breeze and both up-pipes fell out of the collector.
I was tired and rushed the install part of the turbo though and didnt have one of the pedestal o-rings in correctly so when I started the rig back up it was puking oil out the bottom of the turbo. Next morning i tore it apart again and had it back together in an hour. Im getting good at pulling the turbo!
