I remember that it takes a really large wrench to fit it, and it's a pain in the arse to get to. If you can get to it, then you can get it off.
Do you have aftermarket flex?

no i dont have an aftermarket flex.. doesnt that cat come with it? looks like it.. not sure, lol

yeah i have gotten the egr before, not a problem.. i was just worried there wasnt a spot to put it on the new cat. cool there is. thanks alot.

i know how to get the cat off.. not hard at all..

nvm just found out that information..

that aftermarket cat is long.. i never realized that..


so next im off to get a flex pipe.. cool. thanks for your help man, i really appreciate it.

i wish i would have gotten a better look at your engine bay. so much going on i didnt get the chance to.

Yeah, get a flex, it will come with good gaskets(if you get a new one). Then you'll have full exhaust!

here's the thing....

i want those mods, the only others that i have are bolt ons, ie. see signature. i thought only race headers and flexpipes voided warranties. plus, guys at my dealership have told me personally that as long as the mod doesnt cause the problem, its covered. im assuming that an O2 cheater voids the warranty. kinda looking for a little info here.
