94-95 B&G Downpipe Installation?

I am mocking up my turbo hotside setup that I just got from Brian and am trying to figure out what the best strategy is to get the B&G downpipe installed. I currently have the turbo and P/S header installed and I am thinking its not going to go in fully assembled like that. Any tips before I go banging up a perfectly ceramic coated downpipe? I was thinking possibly feeding it up from below but i am just not sure....

Get some 2in wide blue painters tape and tape that thing up for the initial install.

I cut it, installed a V-Band and suggest the same to others.



You can it in, as sent from BG but.. if you have A/C or in my case, A/C and I piped the wastegate back into the downpipe. It's a bit much of a struggle.

If you pull the passenger side valve cover off, you should be able to get it on. I have had mine off and on a couple of times now. The other way to do it......Set the passenger side header in place but not bolted in. Slide it as far forward as possible and tilt it down. Then you can slide the downpipe in its home and prop it up with some zipties to the hood. Now you can go about installing the header and the turbo.


It can be a total pain in the ass.

I did not want another exhaust connection under the hood, just another joint to come loose and I dont think they look that great under the hood to be honest.

Good luck!!
