 I've got one of those, early Sealy type, works fine no problems, as Nick says breaker bar then spin off with gun,, for stubborn types I've got old fashioned CP windy gun.




No, Nick is saying that a long 1/2" ratchet should be bought before an impact wrench especially for occasional DIY use.

 Stop being pedantic.. :)

Either get the lambda's moved as per the guide,, or fit a pair of 3.0L downpipes with lambda's fitted as per the guide.

I had thought about it. Do you notice a gain by eliminating the precat?
There is a marginal improvement by using good 3.0l cats, and they are likely to last longer than the utter junk fitted to 2.6/3.2 cars.

Nobody suggested removing the pre-cats on 2.6/3.2 exhausts, just moving the lamdas :)

Biggriffin has commented to install downpipes 3.0, since we are at work.. ;D
Yes, it does give a marginal improvement, so worth doing.

They need minor mods to make them fit, from memory a few mm have to come off the manifold end, and obviously they need a lamda boss welded in post cat (which you would have to do on your 3.2 cats anyway, due to the failing starting cats).

 Correct, grind about 2mm off the protruding bit from manifold end of down pipe,,, the improvements to performance aren't noticeable when driving, if there are any,

Check sun roof drains, and ensure boot air vents are working.. the common way for water to enter the boot is thro rear light seals
