Oh. Ya I forgot I did my whole exhaust at the same time. Ya, I went all Borla and didn't have to cut anything. Nor weld anything since I left the cats off.

You'll see, it's pretty easy. Not sure how old your son is, but I'd have him underneath guiding and making sure the sensor wires are out of the way, while you guide from the top and get a bolt started. After that, it's easy street.

I don't get it.
Ok. He's 15 so he will be under the car guiding everything up while I bolt. And I think the only reason I have to cut is because I have to cut out the mid pipes and resonators to put in the ARH stuff. But I believe they give you clamps to put their stuff to my mufflers. If I have to weld, I will just have a local shop do that lol. Thanks for the info!

Good luck. Cool that your son will get some 'wrenching' time. I had my son help me with his Jeep do the control arms and rotors and pads. Had my daughter, 14 help with my Camaro.

It is so awesome that you guys have the kids helping. My son, 10 at the time, helped my put the SW exhaust on the SST the first week it was here. Kids have such a blast doing it. After that, we were driving down the road and one of his friends waved us down. Took him for a ride and my son said "yeah, check out this new exhaust I helped put on Dad's car - it's a lot louder..." And his buddy said "that is cool that you did that with your Dad." Makes you feel good they can be a part of it.

I wish my husband would be interested in helping me work on my car. A spare pair of hands can be very helpful at times.

Cool story. And yeah they come in handy sometimes An added bonus is my son researches all these DIY's and other instructions that will help me out, and he always tells me we need to do the mods ourselves because this is what he wants to do the rest of his life, work on cars. It's good bonding when we both love what we are doing.

My son didn't like it at all. But I didn't when I was his age either, and look at me now.
