My Racing Beat REV8 catback tomorrow morning. Going to go pick up 2 more jack stands and a bigger car jack which I'm going to use to roll the stock exhaust out and the new one in. Gonna try doing this solo. WISH ME LUCK

good luck.. don't forget to lube up the hangers and maybe hit your bolts with some penetrating oil before you go to bed tonight
I sure did! Cleared out my garage from my kitchen cabinet project to get the car in and WD-40'd. I sprayed some in the rubber hangers just for kicks but I'll probably use the "detergent" method to slip them out. Everything looks like it's in there pretty tight so I'll be honest and say I'm a little intimidated... Also it seems the rx8 jack doesn't go high enough to where I want the jack stands to be.
For those who have done this, how did you guys get the bolts loose??? I went out and bought an impact wrench but forgot to get the socket adapter to fit a smaller socket. Then my wife went out and I have no car lol.
Thank you sir! I was originally trying to go with install option 2 (no shroud removal) but it seemed almost impossible to get the stock exhaust out without taking the shrouds off. Surprisingly easy. Usually me + plastic tabs = epic fail, but not this time my friends!
@rxwarrior I probably honestly wont get a midpipe until I get the Cobb AP since CEL is something I CANT live with. I'm thinking the RB mp in the effort to build a full RB exhaust setup. Maybe even the headers in the future...
It really does get louder as I run it for longer. Now I'm thinking either the BHR or Mazsport midpipe. Am I reading right that the Mazsport is in fact the same thing as the Agency Power? So confused... Still on the edge as I want to pass emissions without hassle and no CEL.. ah the cost to play
