    i did the whole system my self and from the precat back took just just over an hour. then fitted the precat at a later date and about an hour for that as well. all done crawling underneath. hardest bit was doing the precat clamp up. do it yourself save the cash for another mod

    Fitting the exhaust is easy enough, just take your time and you'll need to be able to get underneath it with a little space...

    It comes down to either paying the $$$$'s or having the satisfaction of doing it yourself...
