      It is easy. I fitted the cat back on the drive but its tricky getting to the precat. luckily my bro is a mechanic and put it on the ramps where he works to fit.

        IMO it's a complete ******* to fit if you don't have a ramp.

        I did mine on the drive using axle stands (please don't just rely on a jack) and whilst it was straight forward in principle, actually fitting it was difficult due to the access.

        I found the hardest part was re-fitting the v-band clamp at the turbo end once it was loose enough to allow removal of the pre-cat.

        You can do it, no problem. Just be prepared for a job that it appears should take only 20mins taking considerably longer...
