Uppipe and downpipe installation difficulty


Recommended Posts

anywhere from 2-8 hours. the norm would be about 3-4 for both. make sure to hit the bolts with some PB Blaster a couple hours or the day before. This will help you cut the time down.

8 hours only if you're like me - super-anal and taking pictures at every turn, labeling every bolt and nut that comes off..... *AND*, lest I forget, having long breaks and a lunch with a good friend, goofing off! :lol:

 

Sure, it took wayyyyyy too long, but it was a fun time had by all. ;)

I could certainly do it in <3 hours. The issue at hand is if the bolts you are going to be working with are going to work with you or against you ;)

 

Also, keep an eye for details on the UP that you purchase. For example, I installed a Crucial UP/DP last weekend on a car. The studs on the UP were too long and made installing the DP a real challenge.

^ RE: Crucial's supplied UP studs -

 

Indeed, the two towards the "rear" are a bit too long, if installed "by Hoyle."

 

However, like you said, it's very important to keep an eye on install-note details - these two referenced studs are supposed to go in "upside-down" to facilitate clearance. :)

 

Very good point! God is in the details!

That's what I get for thinking logically! DAMN!

It's about a 3 hour job for me. Air tools aren't that much of an edge due to the location of the bolts. There are just a lot of bolts that need to come out to get the UP in, and some require a good dousing of PB Blaster and a good bit of grunting with a BF breaker bar!

Haha, now I know about those studs...
