Default SPD turbo adapters and Kooks catted downpipe install tips/help
So I have my SPD turbo adapters, stud kit, stud extractor, and Kooks catted downpipes. Iím no stranger to wrenching on my vehicles myself, so Iím not worried about that. But does anyone has any tips or suggestions for the install. Looks pretty straightforward from what I can see. Found some videos on the turbo adapters install, but not much on the downpipes swap. Looking to tackle this job this weekend myself.

Stock exhaust for now. I want to see how it sounds before I decide if Iím changing anything else. My dealer will take care of the install but they are 3 weeks plus from being able to get it in. I have just over 3600 miles on my truck. How many miles were on yours at the time?

I would say you almost have to get a torch to remove the stock turbo studs.

Take your time and plan on 6-8 hours if this is your first time doing it.

Mine was done with around 18k miles.

If I were to do it again, I would do the same your doing, Downpipes+adapters to stock exhaust.

When I got my borla s type, I never thought I would want to change the stock dps down the road.

Thanks. I have one of the of the hand held torches. Someone recommended getting the flexible extended attachment for it. Iím picking that up tomorrow. Itís not a daily driver so time isnít a factor. Canít be more difficult than working on my supercharged Tundra was, can it...... lol.

Iíve watched/listened to as many videos as I could have before deciding on the Corsa extreme vs downpipes. And then calling every downpipe manufacturer before deciding on which set of those to go with. Iíll see how happy Iím am with it then. I added an AFE intake last weekend. Turbos sound a little better with it.

We do the studs with a ton of heat. keep the torch on it and hit it with an impact, if it doesnt move, keep heating.

Sorry Onemoosehorn for a Gen 1 butting in, but wanted to add my .02. I'm no stranger to wrenching either and coming from the diesel world, nothing can't be any worse than working on a Duramax. What I did back in the day was soaked the studs for a couple of days in penetrating oil (like WD-40 specialist), then like trophycummins said, through the heat to it. The hand held torch in the yellow bottle works much better than the blue ones. Never broke a stud and most all came out with very little effort.

Thanks. Iím going to pick up a bottle of Mapp gas to use. I believe thatís the yellow bottle. Iím hoping they arenít to bad with only 3600 miles on it.
