Hooookay, I finally got the exhaust installed. I tried using a flex head wrench on the bolt connecting to the downpipe. No go. I couldn't find my extension cord which meant I couldn't used my wired Dremel.

This morning I got a cordless Dremel and that did the trick. Cut that clamp right off!

In other news, my ICON UCAs came in today! I'm planning to install the front coilovers and UCAs on Saturday. Am scheduled to get wheels/tires mounted Monday.

Installed the coilovers today. I didn't have a big enough socket or wrench to get the UCAs done, unfortunately.

The toughest part was probably cutting the intrusion beams off , in terms of effort. Just not a lot of room in there. I also popped the sway bar out of the link boot on the driver's side. I need to figure out how to reattach it.

Anyway, getting wheels and tires mounted Monday. I'm trying to decide whether or not to just have someone do the UCA and fix the sway bar for me.

I ordered a new sway bar end link from Ford. It was $26, so not bad. Shop wanted to charge me an hour labor to install it, lol. I think I'm gonna install the UCAs tomorrow or Wednesday, then get an alignment.

How do you like your MBRP turndown exhaust? Any issues? Drone? Fumes? I am looking at this in stainless and to be honest I am doing it more for the flow than the sound, so if it isn't too deafening, then it would be perfect.

I like it. It's a little loud at startup but the sound tightens up after the engine warms up. Installation was a bit of a pain; I had to use a dremel with cutoff wheel to get the forward-most clamp off. Easy peasy, otherwise.
