unbolt stock exhaust from Cat section, unbolt exhaust hangers. Drop exhaust. Put new exhaust up, attach hangers, use new mid pipe to cat gasket, and bolt up.
There, you are done

The hardest part about it is getting the bolts undone from the flange, as they are all cooked together. If you can, put some bolt loosener or WD-40 on them the night before, and they should come off a bit easier. The rest is cake. And if you are skinny like me (6'0", 160lbs) and still have your car sitting at stock height, you could even do this with out lifting the car. I just put a big piece of cardboard underneath the car to slide around on, and did it all like that. Same way I did my rear swaybar and diff cover.

Here's a trick I use when I don't want to jack the car: drive the back wheels onto phone books. Raises the car just enough to work under comfortably. Well, sorta.

You may also want to have a good propane touch handy to help un freeze the stuborn nuts and bolts. I needed to do that on my RS when I put my mid pipe in a couple of weeks ago with 63k on it. After applying a little heat they came right off and I didn't strip anything.

Do yourselves a favor and buy stainless steel bolts from a hardware store to replace yours. Just in case you ever have to replace(likely with the Stromung) or take off your exhaust for any reason. And get longer ones for the midpipe to cat bolts to make that spring easier to install.

good tip garface, I forgot to mention i got all new bolts.
Danz- you can use factory gaskets, just buy new ones...

Spray liquid wrench or PB blaster on all the bolts the night before the install, and about 30min before the install.

Wait, so you can't use the stock gasket from the midpipe to the cat that's already there?

Just call your dealer and tell then u need a stock mid pipe/cat gasket and they will have them in stock at around 3$ or something like that. Good luck!

$3??? HAH, try like $10. It's like $8 for the muffler to mid, and $12 for the mid to cat. At least at my dealership.

I'm still kinda unclear...

Can you use the stock mid-to-cat gasket, or is it necessary that I buy a new one?

Guess it's time for a trip to the dealer

The exhaust-to-mid gasket might not be necessary, since I bought the whole stromung catback system.

they most likely come apart, and who knows if you are supplied with a gasket...

I'm pretty sure they supply a gasket for the muffler-to-mid section. I'm going to have to buy a new mid-to-cat gasket.

When I bought just the muffler it came with a gasket. So a full catback definately should have one.
