Congrats man. I felt like a Billy Badass when I did mine and it cranked up! I remember thinking, "well that wasn't to hard." Although my knuckles were bloody and I drank more than I ever have in my life! Can't what tell I do my studs in the near future!

it took me two 9 hr days to do it . there were lots of tips i learned on here that made my life easy . having a pillow and a stand to stand on was great . i was lucky to have a shop to do it in with air tools . its not as bad as i thought it would be ., for everyone debating it just go do it its not too hard . the hardst part for me was the up pipe dam its hard to get to . i took the lining out of the wheel well . i want to cut my oil cooler open and see how cloged it was . my delta was 13 - 15 so mabey its not too bad . if any one has questions about this task just let me no its fresh in the mind .

LOL!!!!!!!


I also had two bolts missing when I did that job....
Then when I tore it apart recently I noticed that my uppipe to exhaust manifold (the egr delete pipe) connection was missing those two flange bolts


nice little exhaust leak I had for half a year

And now since I did the HG repair/studs, WHO KNOWS how many bolts I got left... I lost count

Those bolts maybe hold the egr cooler on the intake? Now that its deleted, no need for those bolts. I ended up with 2 bolts too when i did mine
