Turboback Exhaust Install Help.

So i am going to be buying the JT 3inch exhaust next week. and i was wondering for you exhaust owners out there. was it hard to install? and that if any of bolts broke off cause of the bolts being way to rusted, anybody have experience of that when installing it? and should i be real careful? also. would you guys recommend me to WD-4 the bolts first? Also if the bolts do break what kind of bolts and i get to replace them and what kind do should i get? how long did it take you guys to install your exhaust? thanks.

Have a hacksaw ready for cutting through the old clamps if your hardware is rusted on.

Don't know about that since I don't have a JT system. However you could pick up stuff like that at autozone as far as clamps go.

It depends on what type of clamps are on your car..if you have clamps like these http://www.genuinesaab.com/catalog/p...55c1668c02aa26 then you might break the head right off the bolt..i always seem to over tighten them and the heads break right off

Dont worry about the bolts. They were all fine when i put my JT on. It took me about 2 hours to take the old one off and put the new one on (with a lift).

The only problems i ran into was the turbo manifold bolts kinda stuck when i was taking off the old exhaust. So be carful when backing thoughs out that you dont break them.

I would spray it with WD-40 if thats all you have, the best stuff to get is "PB blasters Penetrating compound." Thats what i used and it works awsome, i would spray it on the bolts a few days before so there easyer to take them off the day you do it. Then right before your going to work on putting the new exhaust on, spray them again to be sure they will come lose.

Good luck with the install if you need anymore help or have questions PM me im pretty much always on.

They're just regular old 8mm studs. I replaced all of mine when I replaced the turbo, but two of them came right out of the turbo with the nuts rusted on when I took off the downpipe last time, so I just replaced them with stainless steel bolts, flat washers, and lock washers. I noticed that Nick Taliaferro did the same thing on his Viggen.

2/3 of mine came out like that too. I just put them back in, rusted head and all. Next time I have them off I will replace them.

I would have one of these handy for exhaust work



My exhaust was welded and clamped, and the clamps were all rusted to hell. So I cut off what I couldnt get off and had to cut the welds.

It was a rewarding experience.

It's very easy to do. You'll have to get new clamps anyways because if I remember correctly the JT system is a slip fit design unlike the stock stuff which uses flared connections with clam shell clamps.

The picture for the JT system on GS site shows that it has most of the clamps and it is a slip fit. Just order the exhaust and when it comes in goto autozone and pick up however many you need if you need more. It'll use the stand u-clamp.
