Default Exhaust installation tips?


Just received my flowmaster 17326 kit from summit. I was just wondering if anybody out there has tips to make the installation easier. I plan on doing this myself in my driveway tommorow after work. I need to borrow a jack and stands from my friend. So far, the kit looks nice and clean. The tip is a little bigger than I expected, but I'm sure it will look alright and not ricey.

I installed a BTG axle back. My tip would be: get that car as far up in the air as you can!.. beer guts dont like small spaces

honestly though. Get everything put in and tighten stuff from the front of the car back. i did it the other way and it didnt line up quite right

Get Rhino ramps - about $20. Safer/easier than jackstands. Get a big piece of cardboard to lie on. Install all the pieces, but don't tighten. Check, re-check, then tighten from front-to-back. Test drive and re-check. I added a second clamp where my BTG meets the stock pipe - after a test drive it was loose, even tho I'd tightened.
