changing h pipe 2012 gt

is it hard to change the h pipe on a 2012 GT? Do you have to the the mufflers off to do it? Just wondering how hard. Can it be done with just ramps?

I changed my stock hpipe to a Corsa x pipe just using a floor jack and some stands to lift it. The mufflers stay on. pretty easy swap really.

I did mine last weekend - put on the Bassani-X. The rear was backed up onto some ramps and the front was supported on jackstands. I needed the extra room. F91 is right about the bolts on the front, with the heads on the top side it was a real PIA to get an open end wrench on it and there is not much room to turn it either, luckily once the were broke loose, they could be turned from the bottom with my fingers. When I reinstalled I reversed the clamp direction so I could bolt it on easier. Install time took about an hour and my wife was there to help lend a hand as she always does!







Next mod is getting rid of the crushed resonators!

You can fit a small socket onto the bottom of the front bolts to break them loose. I can't remember what size I used..

I have an articulated ratchet head so it wasn't that tough for me and yep, a small socket will fit on the bottom of the bolt.
