Thanks Al for your help and use of your lift:

Swapped downpipes for Miltek high flow downpipes and cats:

3 of the 4 bolts for the heatshields over the stock downpipes stripped immediately upon trying to remove them. Worst. Thing. Ever. Also, two of the bolts for the passenger axle or transaxle boot also stripped. Ended up breaking that off in pieces as well.

I used a friends lift and garage to do this. Swap. It helped tremendously. We spend about 85% of the time with the heat shield removal. The stripped bolts, especially the one on the drivers side closest to the wheel, which you have NO room to cut it off or anything. Reinstallation was a cinch without the shields.

Stockers:



Miltek vs destroyed heatshield:



Miltek on the car. Don't mind the wire and crap lol. Car is at the exhaust shop right now getting that fixed.



No heatshield put back on.



Bastard bolts. These were a pain but EASY with the heat shields off. I spend many, Many hours just taking the shields off:




Since all the stuff was off the car, I check both K03 turbines for shaft play and they're perfect!

Been working on this last few days. Hope to have everything buttoned up within the week and get the tune at least somewhat on the car...

Haven't taken any pics, but I will snag some tomorrow!
