        don`t have a clue mate.
        but im very interested in finding out how easy it would be.
        im like a lot of owners,can barely afford the car as it is,so doing things the cheapest and a bit at a time appeals to me.

        are you thinking of using a ramp or jacking the car up?

          thought i would use ramp and trolley jack with axle stands to support the exhaust while being removed and fitted. anyone know what size the bolts are

            rather you than me!!! whats £100 or 2 to get fitted, when the exhaust is costing 1100 and your messing with a 20k car, if you haven't got any experience in exhaust fitting i wouldn't even bother, (just my opinion)!!

                I couldn't bare the stress and the inconvenience if i f***ed it up and anyway its much more pleasurable watching someone else do it and knowing that it is spot on when you drive away!! and watch that slight twist on the tailpipe it has a tendency to just lean over abit to one side :wink:

                  im sure it will be fine its only nuts bolts and brut force lol oh and time. really i would much prefer to do it ,myself not only for the satisfaction but i am going to put a lot more care into it than anyone else due to it being my car. Im also interested in fitting things as i always learn new things each time cant justify paying someone to do something i can do myself :wink:

                    just take care!! i know its only an exhaust and probably is pretty straight forward, but i like to be covered under warranty for everything i have done or at least be able to get it put right at no cost to me!!

                          had a quick look at the front cat and it has something in the side of it like a plug, is this a sensor of some kind. been trying to see how easy it will be to change over to the free flow pipe

                            My 2p is that there are a few vxr,s out there with twisted pipes that are either off centre or knocking on the rear valance.....
                            someone had a thread on here about believe milltek at angle....(i believe)
                            I seriously would take into account what you will do if all stripped off and fitted and rear looks ******?

                              i would put it back to standard and seek pro fitting if that was the case
