Default Downpipe Installation OC?

Hey,

I attempted to install a DP on my 2012 last night and got to getting the five bolts off the top of the DP (after way too long), before I noticed it was way too late and I was way too jetlagged.

I ended up putting it back together, leaving the head shield and bracket next to the BPV off and driving back across the street home.

Anyways, I was having some serious trouble getting this thing off (despite it saying it's easy). Is there a member on here I could pay-bribe in beer or food/a place I could take it locally to put this on for me? It's not worth the headache.

Yeah. That and the other little part that connects to it as well as the arm between the TMIC and the BPV (except I'll put that back on this morning). It's not too hot here anyways ATM... I think after I install the new one I'm going to put on a Grimspeed shield anyways.

If you need a shop, go to Forman. http://goforman.com/

Also, for the local help, state your location.

I did the install pretty smoothly. You just need to saturate all screws with anti seize. I used a wd40 variant. Sray, wait a few minutes or so and then try again.

A huge +1 to Project Import. I know you were looking for a beer and pizza type job, but if you ever need a shop to go to, this is the one to go to in OC. Steve and Bryan, the owners, are straight up no BS kind of guys who tell you exactly how it is, good or bad. I've tried other shops but always end up back at PI.
