You either have to cut it in half with a sawzall (recommended) or remove the tranny support crossmember if you need to save it for some reason.

I did cut it in half to be able to get it by the cross member...but i cant get the thing out of the engine bay cause of the curve at the top of the downpipe hits the firewall and the up pipes? and i cannot get a saw in there to cut it off
