    Josh, on the install - do you have ramps and a socket set? The V exhaust is one of the easiest exhaust systems of any car to swap. Only a handful of bolts and it comes right out. Almost as easy as plugging in a !CAGS Eliminator.

    If you collect V pictures off the web like I do, here's some off the B&B website.

    I dont have ramps, but perhaps I should. Was going to pay someone to install your CAGS eliminator too Rhino Ramps sufficient?

    If you bring your V to my garage, I'll install the !CAGS and B&B for you - all it will cost is a 12-pack.

    Rhino ramps will work good, that's what I'm planning on having under the rear axle for my B&B install.

    Re: Billy's Exhaust Kicks A$$

    My thoughts are just one set of ramps under the rear wheels will allow room under the car to loosen the four front exhaust flange bolts. The big benefit of just one set of ramps under the rear is there will be lots of room under the mufflers at the rear of the car to work since the V will be tilted nose down, accentuating the height under the rear of the car.

    Two sets of ramps would probably work very well and provide a uniform clearance under the car. For my B&B, I'm going to give it at try with just one set.

    One set of Rhino ramps, a good 3/8 or 1/2" socket set a creeper and that should about do it for the install tools.

    Just going by memory of what the underside of the car looks like, there is one cross brace that will need to be removed - thinking it is 4 bolts??? The next step will probalby be to disconnect the front of the exhaust from the exhaust manifold down pipes. Then wiggle the exhaust out of its hangers and slide it out from under the car. Probably missing something in there, but that's the jist of it. Billy's system should install pretty much in the reverse order.

    In the future, I see another How-To write up coming...

    For the beer, I'll need something dark, imported and preferably Deutsch. Danke. :drinker

    You guys are freaking nuts. Pay someone to do your install. That way you have someone to scream at if it breaks.

    Good advice for non-gearheads Cal.

    For me to pay $100 for someone to tighten a few bolts? Never. In my 18 years of auto ownership, I've paid for someone to work on my car once and that was for air conditioning work as I didn't own the gauge set at the time.
