Instructions:

NOTE: DO NOT TIGHTEN ANY BOLTS OR CLAMPS UNTIL THE LAST STEP!!

  1. Disconnect the battery (this will allow the vehicles computer to reset and read the new exhaust system).
  2. Support the vehicle in a safe manner, using a shop hoist or frame contact jack stands on a level surface. Remove the exhaust at the clamps behind the converters. Leave the o.e. rubber hanger mounts on the car, as well as the o.e. mufflers, unless you will be also installing an additional axle-back system (now is a good time to do so though!!).
  3. Install the driver side (left) over the axle pipe to the muffler using a 3” clamp. These are the same for driver and passenger side.
  4. Repeat step 3) for the right (passenger) side.
  5. Install the driver side (left) straight pipe to the X-pipe using a 3” clamp, the outlets of the both pipes have an over the axle elbow welded on.
  6. Repeat step 5) for the right (passenger) side.
  7. Install the X-pipe to the S-bend extensions using the new 3” clamps.
  8. Install the driver and passenger side S-bend extensions to the o.e. converters using the included new Euro clamps. The inlet of both ends has the flare, and they route the exhaust in towards the drive shaft. These are the same for both the driver and passenger side.
  9. Once the new pipes are hooked up to the o.e. hangers, connect the over the axle pipes to the rear mufflers (or install the new axleback kit), using the new Euro clamps.
  10. Check for clearance of the frame, body, suspension members, and of all brake and fuel lines. When you are satisfied with how the system hangs, tighten the clamps. Reconnect the battery.
