    Full exaust installation

    Hey guys got all my parts on order they should get here today & tomorrow got pacesetter lts with ory and adjustable borla cb, just wondering about how long it took people to do the installation for the ones that did it themselves, I'm fairly mechanicly inclined so it shouldn't be too hard and have access to a lift and all the tools I need. I'm expecting a solid 4-8 hours with no interuption.

    should be right around there... your stock cat back will probably have to be cut to get it out...

    4-8 sounds right with a lift. Mine took 14 hours on jack stands, but the jack was wimpy and a lot of that time is simply climbing under the car over and over.

    It is not too hard of a job. Enjoy your new exhaust!

    Yeah I got the exaust, my biggest problem is going to be finding a dyno tune, the only place in my area I know that has a dyno doesn't do tuning and the only place I know that does tuning doesn't have a dyno

    You won't need a tune IMMEDIATELY... but you will need one. You are lucky to have a lift. Make sure you take the Coil packs off but other then that you're good.
