Installing Borla Ataks in the Spring on my 13'. One of the videos I recently watched showed them disconnecting the H pipe. Not a big deal but is that actually necessary?

 

Thank you

Unnecessary. Axle backs are pretty simple; aside from unbolting the clamps I also recommend removing the two bolts the hold the hanger assembly to the body. Drop the muffler out with the hangers still attached. Trust me it speeds up the process exponentially and easier to frig with the rubber loops on the ground. Probably take you 5 minutes a side that way. I miss my ATAKS, best sounding exhaust on stock H pipe and headers. Switched to GT500 mufflers after the long tubes and O/R H-pipe.

I just swapped out my factory's for a set of Corsa's last weekend.  Totally unnecessary to remove the over axle pipe.  However I did remove the driver's side of the chassis stiffener, it was 2 bolts.  And dropped the sway bar.  Those two things out of the way it was easy as pie.  I did use a small jack on the over axle pipe.  I couldn't hold that up and try to squeeze the muffler in on the driver's side.  Just pushed the pipe up till it hit the bottom of the car, just enough room to get everything in there.

 

I'll probably need to loosen the H-pipe so I can so I can move the mufflers a but to get my tips set perfectly.

Roger that on the Corsas, put Xtremes on last year. With open sidies it's perfect. WD is correct about installing, just unbolt hangars themselves from car and drop down. Oh, I did slightly jack up my over axle pipes also, gave me that extra critical 1", nothing disconnected.

For tip alignment should be able to loosen muffler ball and socket, slightly rotate and resnug. Mine anyways had enough flex with rubber muffler brackets to do this. Not sure at first but now like how the tips are rotated to match rear contour and actually look angled outwards (illusion). Appear to be more integral with fascia, mine look like these, casing is heavy 304SS. Attached File  image.jpeg   95.41KB   0 downloads

Well too like the actual tailpipe exit from rear of car. Not looking like a stub out off a muffler at the back end of the car but with appearance of muffler further inward. Will leave stainless showing underneath but I too have blacked out mufflers and pipes on other cars.

Same as above, I didn't have to touch the H pipe although it was recommended IIRC. I can see it making the bolting the axle backs in easier but the install overall is more complicated and time consuming so don't see the point. Good luck! Please post a video!

Roger that on installer preference. Just was easier for me, I'm left handed and do everything backwards anyways. Used open end wrench as it's a tight spot. Myself, can't help with video as car is in deep freeze mode in shed (1 1/2 car garage) and had over 2' of snow with drifts last night lol. As I recall hanger with muffler drop was easier than trying to pry muffler struts from them. Come right apart with no strain on anything.
