Hi All,

Got my downpipe from VIVA, but now that I'm actually looking at the space under the car, some of the bolts where the DP bolts to the turbo seem nearly impossible to get to. :confused:

Also, there's a fair bit of heat shielding that looks to be mounted to the OEM downpipe which obviously won't transfer to the ferrita unit.

Does anyone have a step by step (or at least an overview) of how to get the OEM downpipe out of the car? ( I have an xc60, but I imagine the packaging is nearly identical for s60/v60)

All that heat shielding is lost, bag it up with the oem dp. You will also need new hardware to bolt on to the cat-back, what is on the oem pipe stays on the oem pipe. I believe you need to remove some of the bracing to help the access near the turbo, but that's about all I can offer since i didn't install myself due to the dyno testing I committed to doing. Best of luck.

Can you confirm that they didn't remove your angle gear / transfer case? Just removed heat sheilds/brackets/bracing and other non-mechanical parts?

I'm happy to start pulling parts if I know it's possible...but I don't think I've got the time this weekend to tackle this if I need to pull the angle gear.

Good news! Removal of the old downpipe IS possible on the XC60 as a DIY without removal of the angle gear or any other mechanical components. Will put together a write up in the next couple of days with recommended tools, lessons learned, etc.

If anyone else is attempting this today/tomorrow, PM me and I'll give you the quick version.

New question: does the Oxygen sensor spacer go on the sensor closer to the engine or on the sensor closer to the resonator?
