    Feeling defeated exhaust install

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    I am getting too old to be crawling around on the garage floor. I need a lift.

    One of the nuts is trashed, didn't want to come off, it finally did. Looks like the threads on the dp are boogered.

    Installing the aftermarket system didn't go any better. The rear section wouldn't stay together (slip fit) so I couldn't get the system bolted up to the dp to even attempt to adjust it.

    Arrrrg I finally gave up. It was supposed to be an easy install, only two nuts and a couple pipes right. Fiiick

    Cpe purchased from you. I was trying not to mention the brand. Oh well. Nothing against the quality of the system, it's glorious. Just difficult to install by yourself laying under the car with very little room.

    This why I let the local tuner shop install my Nexus system (even though the car was only 3 months old at the time, and was only exposed to salt one time), since if THEY broke or stripped the down pipe studs they would be able to fix it on the spot instead of me tying up the car for DAYS waiting on parts.

    I also only had 2 jack stands to work with.

    How old is, and how many salt soup midwestern winters did the down pipe/factory system go through?

    I tried going to the local tuner / performance shop but they refused me. German cars only. Guess they don't like money.

    A tad over 7,000 miles and one winter.

    I hear you dude. I crawled my fat ass under my last car (Sentra Spec V) more times than I'd like to admit to swap out exhausts. I paid the local exhaust shop to install my CBE on the FiST because I am too old/fat for that nonsense.

    I had an alignment rack to work from when I replaced a bunch of stuff at once.

    My co-worker did the exhaust while I did the intercooler and he was cussing the entire time. =D It seems the exhaust on these little beasts can be a little tough to get installed easily.
