Information:
  • For this guide it is implied that you already have the car in the air and on Jack Stands
  • While not necessary, it is MUCH more convenient if you drop the catalytic converter section of your exhaust
  • My Transmission Crossmember came partially put together, if yours did not you will utilize the 11/16 SAE Socket
  • An Impact is useful in removing the PPF Nuts, but not required
  • If you still have the OEM Split Air Pipe minor modifications will need to be made to the mounting tab

Steps:
1. Remove the Transmission Splash Shield with a 10mm Socket/Ratchet
