On the right side? I think you better find a new mechanic.
You'll have to remove your factory ypipe (which you were going to do anyway because you were just about to order a Racingline Ypipe) and then the front cat is a breeze. 4 14mm bolts from the bottom, 2 from the top. The firewall side is a little tougher to reach. There are 2 14mm bolts you reach from the bottom and 2 14mm nuts you have to get from the top. I got to my top by removing the upper intake manifold assembly. It's not hard, just time consuming. There's also an aluminum compression ring that has to be replaced on top of the rear cat. Don't reuse it or you'll get a P1273 exhaust leak code like mine.
Taz...If only I had known my cats were going to be coming off during my y install...And if I had the extra dough. But...They're coming off again to troubleshoot my exhaust leak. So I guess I'm just in need of dough.
Edit: I suppose I should add "if the new product is ready"...
Just looked! They're on the site! Holy balls! I'm drooling...I need to sell something.
