Just loaded the @Two Step Performance stage 1 tune. Runs great! Intercooler arrives Friday! The MAP exhaust is 3 to 4 week turn around!

Sweet build man. I will be looking to get a lot of the same mods as you chose to go with in the next year or so.

@MAPerformance exhaust install!

Old exhaust removal process:

There are 7 exhaust hanger rubber bushings. Before starting i sprayed all bushings with a generous amount of wd40 and let them sit for a few mins.

I used a pry fork to slide off the bushings from the old exhaust hangers.

Lets look at hanger locations

The rubber bushings for these two can stay on the exhaust and not the car!

Notice 4 in this center section. These are the only muffler mounting points for the MAP exhaust.

The last hanger is in the resonated mid piping shown

Now for the new @MAPerformance street exhaust:

Tools used rachet, 14mm socket, 15mm socket and deep 13mm socket.

I started with the muffler section.
I lubed all 4 of the muffler hangers so they would slide easier into the hanger bushings. 2 bushings per muffler side.

Muffler is now hung!

45334526275_f87b0a2f73_c.jpg


Next I installed the front section of the exhaust (3 bolt flange) using the provided new gasket and new bolts, tightening with a 14mm socket.

46247627411_c19be19df0_h.jpg


I laid out all of the new piping following the curvature of the factory piping.

Next I installed a vband clamp over the front piping.

46247729041_aa5649a64d_h.jpg


Lubed new hanger and mounted up the center resonated piping tightened vband snug to prevent movement but not too tight.

46197000332_ec22399c8b_h.jpg


32375440628_e30accab4c_h.jpg


Next slide exhaust clamp over the resonated piping. Next I bring the additional piping over and slide the clamp over the two pipes equally (eyeball it). No tightening here!!!

46197098252_95d751ba3f_h.jpg


I slide a vband clamp over the muffler piping. I connect the mid piping to the muffler with vband clamp and tighten snug but not too tight!

46247862261_7c57661784_h.jpg


At this point everything is together loosely this is the time to check piping clearances to the body and eliminate potential vibration points of the exhaust on the chassis.

Once clearances are checked tighten the vband bolts with 13mm deep socket and the exhaust clamp with 15mm socket. and you are done!
