Could be if you are installing cheaper downpipes but getting the rear band on is a notorious pain in the ass. You usually will have to work with it for a really long time before it falls into place.

Took me probably 1hr to get one of the bands. Have to spread it and push it around pipe at same time kind of. You'll know when it's on when the clamps becomes nearly closed without having to squeeze it shut.

The v band flange needs to be perfectly flush otherwise it will likely leak.

I actually broke the vband clamp on the strap by spreading it too far...on a saturday night at 11PM lol be careful! and if u move your head to the wheel well, there is a hole you can look through which makes it 1000x easier to get the band on and it honestly took me 7 minutes once I found that hole to look through, wish I found it an hour before hand.

(You will be laying on your back with your feet to the driver side looking between the wheel well and the frame. Just look you will find it.

Took me 6 hrs also in my garage on jacks on my back, only had car bout 7 weeks and haven't done anything to it but oil change so I was learning where everything was also.

Putting the clamp on the turbo, fit up the dp, then flip one side of clamp, then other. Still took a while, but this was the easiest way instead of trying to.hold clamps open whole time with fingertips.

Also used cardboard for the two tight spots on the dp fitment, jammed pieces in there to push/guide where I wanted the dp to go. Look at guides, u will c which two spots. Worked good for me, no rattling at all.
