Yes and yes. These studs donโ€™t require a nut. They're stainless steel
Thanks ... will put an order in. ๐Ÿ‘ would be good to even have if I didn't even change them over as this is my only car and would make it difficult to get to work if something did happen.
Going to have to wait to do the job anyway now as the gaskets I need are going to be at least a week away ... damn covid slowing shipping down ... grumble grumble :D

To be fair you should at least have the special tool to remove the two sensors. We also used this double extension setup to reach for the upper screws of the flex pipe, but it also works without it, it's just a tad more fiddlier.

The rest is just making sure you turn and angle the upper downpipe in the right way to pull it out from underneath the car.

The process itself is not that hard, it becomes a pain when some screws or one of the sensors is rusted into place.
Hey @Bu11eT - been looking for this double extension tool and all I can find is something called a wobble bar. Is this the tool or is it called something else?


Thanks

Yes that's the right one. Didn't even know there is such a name for it ๐Ÿ˜…. In general most high quality extensions offer you the option to not lock in fully, but to become a "wobble bar" as well

Small update ... new downpipe installed. :D Chickened out in the end and got an exhaust specialist to help me install it. Sounds like it was a good call though as some of the studs required some extra work that would of been out of my league to fix ๐Ÿ˜ฌ. Quite an aggressive sound from the young lady now.

I'm keen to get your feedback on the battery. Do you think it's a viable replacement for the stock AGM battery?
Firstly...this is my first LiFePO4 battery and have not had much experience with them in the past. Plus its only been in the car for just over a week.

At the moment I'm very happy with the battery and have had no issues with starting the engine. (at the moment the longest time no starting the engine would of been just over 3 days) I guess the big question is if you interested in getting rid of weight out of the front of the car or not? If I was not really concerned about the weight I might of never worried about it but compared to some other mods I have done to help lose weight of the front of the car, it is defiantly the cheapest dollar per kilo mod.
