2010+ GT downpipe removal?
 
Has anyone done this themselves?

Looking at the repair manual on how to get the exhaust off...do you really have to remove the headers just to take the downpipe off??

No... the bolts on the DP -> turbo flange are going to murder your face. If you search this forum for downpipe install you'll be able to find many tales of woe and violence. Other than that it's straight forward.

I ended up removing a couple of turbo studs to get everything out of there...

I also remember pulling on and cutting bolts for a heat shield or something while we were down there.

Haha, thanks guys. That was freakin ridiculous, but I finally got it. I ended up removing a couple stud bolts as well, simply because they came out on their own while undoing the nuts.

Is there a stud-bolt removal tool of some sorts? Looks pretty difficult to remove them short of a stuck nut.

Haha, great! That would leave the rest of the bolt in the turbo flange though :(

well the studs on the 5th gen have some sort of torx-like star on them, my friend had a set of sockets that fit on there and they came out. Pretty sure the nut also got stuck on one or two studs, so that pulled them right out.

Oh right right...duh! My bad. I was remembering my other nightmare with the midpipe stud came off and it didnt have the torx connection.

I used the torx socket set and was able to take the turbo studs out. :redface::redface:

Also, on a related note. Does anyone know the part number for the turbo studs and nuts? I think I'd like to have a couple extra on hand...
