    Audi A3 1.8T exhaust removal.

    Ive just acquired a 2.5" decat downpipe and a full 2nd hand 2.3/4" Scorpion Exhaust off a MK4 GTi...

    Is there anything horrible i can expect once i get under the car?

    Removing Turbo flange etc...

    The nuts could be seized on the flange as is with all cars tbh, if you don't have one already get a blowtorch to heat them up if they are seized, your brave doing that job on your back I would find somewhere to fit it for me for a good price, it's not worth the hassle imho.

    Too be fair I have issues when it comes to lying underneath cars if you don't then knock yourself out, not literally of course .
