I went online last week (Thursday, 5/17) and ordered the Fister D Exhaust under the exchange program. I got the confirmation email that said someone would be in touch very soon. No word yet. How long did it take you to hear back from them?

It's not hard to do. I ran into a problem when one cat bolt was rusted solid and I was impatient. Give them a good spray with PB Blaster and let it soak in for a little while. I wound up cutting it off and the rest was easy. You remove the bracket from the car with the muffler attached, not the muffler from the bracket. There are DIY's around that explain the process step by step. Once the mufflers are off, you'll probably have to cut the bolts from the clamps that hold the tips to the the mufflers. You can find suitable stainless replacements at Ace Hardware or Home Depot. Some DIY's suggest replacing the tip clamps - they're about $35 a piece. Don't waste your money, reuse the clamps but replace the bolts..

I didn't remove the bumper or wheels as some have suggested. Just back the car up onto some sturdy ramps. I used Rhino ramps from Autozone.

If you can get under the car reasonably well, then you don't need to remove the bumper. When I did mine, I removed the rear bumper and the wheels. It made access much easier.

Dont waste your money paying someone to install. 3 hours is crazy. it will take an hour at most. 3 bolts hold the muffler in place and the bolt holding it to the cat. Maybe spray a little Wd on the cat bolts ahead of time. you dont need to take the fender off. After you do thefirst side second is a breeze. while you have these off , replace your spark plugs :)

I have order mine on june 8th and received and email on july 15th telling me that it was ready. So a little more than a month. Now I am waiting for the mufflers to arrive home. You have to be patient, it's a popular mod :thumbup:

I just notice the date of you're post...I hope you have received it !!
