Default Who's got the best thread on how to install a turbo-back exhaust and up-pipe?

I looked on scoobymods.com and couldn't find a good one with any real detail. If someone could link me up I'd really appreciate it. Thanks

Thanks. Stupid question though . . . are the instructions the same regardless of manufacturer?

some of them do things a little differently such as what bolts you tighten first on the uppipe and such but they should all get you to where you want to be w/o too much hastle. The one thing I would suggest is use new gaskets where you can, it sucks to have to go back in there once you think you're finished. alot of times it seals okay w/o new gaskets but it's better not to take the chance if you can help it. Now would be the time to drill and tap the manifold and put a EGT sensor in there if you plan on getting a gauge in the near future. -James

James, I did the EGT already. As far as gaskets, I know to replace the up-pipe gaskets, but what others are recommended to be changed as well?

You should be okay with just those but I ended up with a leak where the DP meets the turbo which may have just been a fluke. The only other one you're messing with would be the crossover pipe to the manifold gasket. I didn't need it for mine but it might be a good idea depending on how anal you are. -James

Edit: I forgot about the manifold to the block gasket but I havn't heard of any leaks there yet.

Anyone else done this? I was planning to replace only the uppipe gaskets, but I'll change out the others if needed

By the way, APS states that all their exhaust systems come with detailed instructions (in case anyone is interested)

Both gaskets for the up-pipe right?
