    Downpipe and decat installation

    MOT done (passed first time ) so ready to fit downpipe and decat to the S3. Is there any guides hidden in any posts anywhere? Going to be doing it myself.

    Also is it possible to do it on a jack without too much stress?

    Mods Wanted/Planned: Wheel Spacers, Moar Silicone, 3" Downpipe, Decat, Debadge Rear Rings, Spray Front Rings, 8P/V Gear Knob, REVO!!!!!!!

    MISC: Sort Out Paintwork...

    Because It Makes No Attempt To Be Great, It Is Therefore Extremely Great.

    If you don't have a ramp, I'd recommend paying someone.

    I can have access to a pit, just wouldn't be for a couple weeks as he's on holiday. Wanted to get it done this weekend that's all. Better to wait then is it?

    I'd say so, it'll be a ball ache on stands as you'll be on your back with little room to work in. You've a much better chance of it going smoothly on a ramp/in a pit.

    2nd this, it's a pain on a ramp, don't attempt it on the floor!!!

    Audi S3 8L in absolute red, Stage 2 tuned & Golf MK4 GT TDI PD, bright green pearl, also Stage 2 tuned... 23mpg vs 53mpg!
