Default Who can help me with up pipe / downpipe install?



I plan on getting TurboXS stage 2 and an up pipe in a few weeks.

I don't wanna pay someone to do it I want to do it myself with help from others in case I run into any problems

I've done the downpipe, but I've never done an uppipe. However, I would be happy to give you a hand. From what I heard, you should set aside a decent amount of the day for this. Also, GET NEW GASKETS. Sorry to yell, but it seems as though people are having trouble with exhaust leaks & re-used gaskets.

I second the new gasket approach. I was advised to do so by Suby Sports and I have never heard anything even resembling an exhaust leak since I did it myself with new gaskets. Actually I JUST got the gasket that fits from header to bottom of uppipe. My downpipe/exhaust came with a new gasket and I reused the one that sits between the turbo and top side of the uppipe.

Gaskets are a must, and if leaks are an issue, get the Permatex Gold high-temp exhaust spray-a-gasket stuff, and spray that on the gaskets prior to installing.

My garage and tools are always available (assuming I have the time) and I am in Aurora. If you are interested let me know. This weekend is booked solid with races and then a clutch install, so that won't work.

PM me if you are interested. I've got everything you could need - air tools, engine hoist, ramps, jackstands, creeper, and I've worked on all 52 cars I have owned so have plently of tips.

Okay RS25.com had to back out.

Is there anyone else that can help me with the up pipe install?

I got the Godspeed uppipe with new gaskets.
