buschur TBE install on an IX

So I ordered my TBE from Buschur a couple of days ago and I was wondering how hard it is to install? Are there any good writeups out there for it? Any good advice that you guys can give? Can I do it in my drive way with some a floor jack?

Thanks

It's basic and simple. There is nothing you need to know other than to use the provided hardware. It also comes with its own instruction manual. I did mine in my garage with a jack and jackstands. Never work under a car that is on a jack, though. Always use jackstands.

In addition to the supplied instructions, I used this post over on Evom.net:

Buschur Exhaust Install on EVO VIII - there are some nice tips on the second page that I found pretty helpful.

and this write-up:

I just installed mine on sunday in my driveway. Just took a couple hours. I'd say the hardest part by far was getting the rear o2 sensor out of the stock exhaust. Just get an o2 sensor socket, spray it with something to get it to loosen (i used PB Blaster), use a breaker bar/cheater bar and a foot and you'll be fine. Other then that the only hard part I had was getting the round gasket off the o2 housing (you have to take it off for the downpipe to fit... it's all in the directions though). I don't know if anyone else has any better tips for you on this one but i just got a thin flat head screw driver and worked it under the gasket and pried it off.

Goodluck

Sounds good guys. I will make sure to take some pics to post after. I am used to working on my old jeep wrangler that had over a 5" lift on it. So this is a little different.

Thanks
