Post intake and exhaust install questions

Hi all- sorry for the slightly long post, but two questions for my '99 RS
1. The JC Sports intake- not sure I have enough parts. I have one yellow hose (two different diameters) that connects the MAF to the far end of the J tube. Does the near end attach directly to the intake manifold/throttle body or do I need an additional yellow hose. If so, can I get one at NAPA?

2. I have a WRX Sti exhaust plus 2.25" midpipe (Thanks Mike Shields!)- do I need new gaskets for the flanges or will the old ones work? Also, what is easiest order to take off old system and put on new one? I will be doing it alone so I need all the good suggestions you have. Thanks!

Hey now-

If you d oa search for "JC Sports Intake install" You'll find what extra parts you'll need and a few other of the important details that you might need to know. Thee kits are infamously incomplete.

In terms of your exhaust, you'll need the following: Liquid wrench, a 18" 'breaker-bar' socket handle or if you're really fancy a pneumatic impact wrench (do you get the impression that those bolts are really gonna be on there? Well they are) and some jackstands (that your car is not sitting on) or milk crates.
If your gaskets are not flakey or really old I say that you could reuse them, but my car only has 16k miles on it and they were shot. You want to unbolt the stock midpipe from the catalytic converter (after generous soaking with liquid wrench) first, and if you want you can leave to exhaust bolted to the midpipe throughout the removal. The next step is to position some jackstands or milk crates or other thing to support the exhaust while you pry loose the rubber hangers. from the front, leaving the muffler hangers for last. Reverse the order for the install of the new exhaust.

hope this helps

RJ- thanks for the info. I did do a search for JC Sports intake instll but found nothing too helpful about yellow hoseadaptor. Will I need one at each end og the J tube and can I pick one up at my local auto parts place?

thanks again!

This thread should do the trick. And yes, everything could be from your local napa.

i really recommend a set of ramps for the exhaust install. Getting the back of the car off the ground helps immensely

ramps are too clunky and annoying...jack up the car by the rear diff and use jackstands.

Ramps are too clunky and annoying? It's a LOT easier to back up onto ramps than it is to jack the car up and put it on jack stands, not to mentiona little safer. Just my $.02
