Default Any Tips For HFPC Install?

Tomorrow I'm installing my y-pipe and Racingline pre-cats. It says that there are 2 bolts I can't get from underneath on the firewall side pre-cat flange. Do I have to get to them from under the hood or can I get them off while under the car? And if I do am I going to have to remove the UIM? How long of an extension do I need for my socket wrench? I have a small extension plus a universal joint for angles. And I have a can of PB Blaster. I read the instructions on their website but I have a gut feeling that I'm going to have problems.

Well unversial U joints is your friend, well it was when I had to take the (header) off the rear,

the pre-cats should be easier , But I never done any work on the floor so Im not sure how much room you have to wiggle.

Hopefully you have a friend to help out

I ended up taking the plastic cowl and wipers off so I could get the heat shield off the rear manifold. Other than that it wasn't too bad. Took about 5 hours by my self taking small breaks. I had zero problems with any stuck bolts. Breaker bar is a wise investment. I had to replace the front O2 sensor because I couldn't get the old one out. I won't be able to tell the results for about a day. I took it out for a drive but I didn't notice anything yet.

Oh ya, I think that metal piece under the plastic cowl is the strut tower brace. Not a very good one but nevertheless its got one.

the best thing after you do any mods , take the battery terminal off and rest the ECU, then start the car and let it idle for 20 mins.

the ECU has adjusts and re-caculated AFR everytime you do a INT/EXH mods.

this would be best after youve installed these pre-cats, do you have a y pipe as well from them ?

glad to hear you got them out without any issues !
