ORP Install?

Any tips or advice? I haven't looked at the cat bolts to see how hard this may be but I'm getting an ORP today and would like to insure that I have all the tools and stuff. Thanks!

Not to complicated.
Make sure you DO NOT tighten the bolts until you have everything aligned. Also jack the car high enough to have room to move the ORP around for alignment.
Enjoy

It looks like most sellers include the bolts. Of course I'll be damned if I can find it in stock so far

Installing the ORP is a breeze...Removing the cat is a little tougher. Not a big deal but you might want to unbolt a bracket on the back of the engine to get the cat out. If I remember correctly you'll need to reinstallal the bracket.

Actually, the Gen2 FC ORP does not use the bracket. Mine didnt. I left mine off since I had so many replaced under warrantee. No problems 5k later...

Be very careful messing with pollution gear. I had an ORP in my car and got stopped. Almost all police departments are now training officers to look for illegal pollution gear changes. He knew right away I had an ORP. To make a long story short between the fine and legal fees I am going to be out over 8000 dollars. I now know that tampering with polllution gear is not just a fix it ticket like I assumed it would be unless you get lucky. Be very careful unless you have a big bank account. The EPA has no sense of humor. The fines they can access are huge.

I do empathize with you for the fines...but this is exactly what I was talking about in the "New to Sport Tuner..." thread. I think most people still don't realize exactly what they are doing when they take off their CATs...for all of you with ORP (or considering it), read what DoubleTrouble said and take it to heart!! Thank you for posting this!!
