I got underneath with a 14mm ratchet wrench and removed the two spring bolts at the down pipe flange then removed the firewall hanger insulator. The pipe landed on the front underbody brace and conveniently slid to one side allowing for unfettered exhaust flow. I think I'll take the weight penalty a...
