WD-40 (or similar penetrating oil) is your friend. A prybar is a big help with the rubber hangers. A light rap with a hammer will help get the v-band clamp off the turbo and down pipe.

pyroil or pblaster is much better than WD-40 for penetration station. for lube silicone, to get it back in the hangers.

Use a sawzall to get the old exhaust off. I cut the downpipe in half to get it out. The 4 inch downpipe is going to be very tight to get in. It'll go, just don't be afraid to muscle it in. Careful with the turbo though. I love my Diamond Eye 5 inch. It sounds incredible. Good Luck to you! It took my students about 2 hours from start to finish.
