Default Uppipe install woes

In the middle of my Uppipe removal, have the passenger side header removed and the uppipe unbolted from the turbo, but the darn thing just doesn't want to wiggle out. Anyone have any suggestions on how to accomplish this without removing the turbo as that is the last thing I want to do.

unbolt the passenger side engine mount and lift the motor with like a phone book and a jack on the oil pan.

it will come out after that, or you can do what i do and pull the turbo

I unbolted the motor mount and jacked the engine up by the oil pan. You should be able to sneak it out the bottom that way. Like TJ said, use a phone book or a piece of wood between the jack and the pan. Anything to absorb and spread out the pressure between the two should work. Good luck

you just need to lift the motor a bit, i used a piece of wood and a floorjack.

unbolt the 14mm passenger side motor mount.

i pulled the motor mount, and fished it out where the dp would be after a lot of wiggling, shifiting and cursing.

Since I was using an AP anyways, I ended up just wrenching off the cold egt line that was holding up the removal, after that it came out like a dream. Got everything installed, uploaded the Stg 2 map and took her out for a test run to make sure nothing popped off. Pulled a lot more solid than she did w/ just a Stg 1 map, and the exhaust note was deeper with a clearer sounding turbo spool. The only "downside" to replacing the downpipe was that the original heat shield for the turbo was bolted to it and she is now sans turbo heat shield. No CEL, no exhaust smell, I think I managed to do this right the first time.

yeah i found it easier to pull it out from the top, as mentioned above just pull on the turbo, it takes some convincing to get out but its definitely do-able

Why did you change to stage 2 with the addition of an UP?

This confused me too, but sounds like he actually installed a downpipe, not uppipe (or maybe both?)

He's definitely talking about an uppipe install (EGT). Must have installed a DP too.

To the OP, you WILL get a CEL in either the uppipe or DP. Both require a fix or they will 100% throw a CEL. The fixes are easy, just do a search.

And BTW, pulling the turbo is not hard. To future uppipe-installers, if you just can't figure out how to jack one side of the engine up (easy), then just pop the turbo out. I just plug my coolant like from the engine with a shaved down wine cork so I don't spew antifreeze anywhere.

Sorry for the confusion, I installed an TurboXS dp/exhaust along with my CoBB uppipe, hence the Stg 2 map. I'd have to reread the Stg2 map notes but I believe they put in an electronic CEL fix bc even though I completely pulled out the cold EGT sensor I don't have any CEL's as of yet (no light and doublechecked w/ the AP).

Yes, your AP will defeat UP and DP CEL's.
