those bolts are bitches man..... ok if your replacing the dp this is what i suggest.... take the bolts off at the turbo and cut the **** out of the dp and that exhaust bracket to get it off and then pull it all out the top, thats what i had to do when i was doing my test pipe install

yea, i had to use a stupid long box end wrench from under the car to get the bottom cat bolt, and a stupid short box end to get the one closest to the block, and the third was just a wrachet.

then the bottom bolts were pretty easy, just needed to be broken loose.

I suggest if you need to put your exhaust on.. You put one on a friends EVO first... Then tell him its his turn to do yours....
