Installation Time: (approx) 2 Hours
ALWAYS USE EXTREME CAUTION WHEN WORKING UNDERNEATH A VEHICLE. USE STURDY JACK STANDS PLACED ON A HARD LEVEL SURFACE. ALWAYS WEAR PROTECTIVE EYE WEAR.
Step 1 Disconnect negative (–) battery terminal.
Step 2 Lift the vehicle as high as possible with jack and support with stands.
Step 3 Unplug the passenger side front, and the rear oxygen sensors. Do not remove the sensors from the pipe yet. This will be done after the pipe is removed from the car. The driver side sensor is located in the exhaust manifold. It does not need to be removed for this job.
Step 4 Separate the cat-back system by loosening the (2) 15mm nuts on each band clamp and prying the locking tabs up with a small screwdriver while sliding the clamp towards the rear of the car.
Step 5 Unbolt stock H-pipe from the exhaust manifolds using the 15mm and long extension(s).
Step 6 Remove the H-pipe from the car by sliding it backwards until the hangers slide out of the rubber isolators in the transmission cross member.
Step 7 Transfer the 3 oxygen sensors to the BBK X-pipe using a 22mm open ended wrench. Be sure to install them in the correct locations, they are color coded to avoid any confusion.
Step 8 Install the BBK X-pipe using the stock hardware.
Step 9 Re-connect the oxygen sensors.
Step 10 Reconnect negative (–) battery terminal.
I'm pretty certain this is the best shopping experience I've ever had. I found what I wanted on AmericanMuscle.com, then did some price shopping and ended up coming back and order from them because they had the lowest price AND free shipping too. I honestly look forward to spending more money with American Muscle. They have customer submitted photos in addition to their great product photography as well as installation guides from users and manufacturers. Their videos are honest and incredibly useful. I can't think of anything else I'd like to see from them.
