The s-pipe should be pretty easy. Taking the O2 sensor off is a pita, but a little PB buster or WD40 will help. Unscrew the s-pipe to manifold/header w/14 mm socket or wrench. Unbolt the s-pipe to midpipe w/14 mm socket. You'll probably need a 3" extension to get over the sway bar there. If you're a little guy like me a set of jack stands will be enough to slide under the car and do all this. Shouldn't take more than half an hour to get it all done depending on how long it takes you to get the O2 sensor off.

Does anyone have any updates on what Megan has done to fix the issues from '05....or any new DIY out there for this?

Thanks!

I just got the Megan catback exhaust today! This DIY might be old, but it's still helpful! Can't wait to install it!

This is prolly a stupid question, just starting to learn about exhausts, but does this setup delete the cat?

Visual inspections here are a pain.

Catback exhaust generally removes the secondary catalytic converter. The primary one is on the exhaust manifold.

This is an outdated DIY but it does still help. After I eventually do my suspension I'm gonna go ahead and replace my current exhaust (greddy) with this one.

Default Need advice

I have the megan header and s-pipe. I want to finish the exhaust without the cel coming on so I can still pass emissions. What should I add on? Anyone got any suggestions? Right now it's the trd exhaust. In a 2008 tc manual transmission.

Thanks for any advice or suggestions!
