    Does it require lifting the motor up/out?

    Just lift the front end with jack stands and have plenty of extension bars to reach the bolt that you have to get front inside the hood. A slight pain but not hard at all

    My stock cats appear to be decent shape for the time being. But if one were to fail, I'm sure I could live with a little extra drone if it saved me a significant amount of cash.

    thx!
