Anyone do DP installs on the side?

Attempted installing my N54tuning DP's this last weekend. Got the car on ramps, pans pulled, and OEM pipes out in under an hour- I'm like hey, this ain't so bad!

3 hours, 6" of bruising on the top of my arm from the rack, and missing skin on the bottom from the crossmember later- I put the stock pipes back on and was real upset.

The pipes fit into the turbos so tight that I couldn't get them seated, and therefore couldn't get the v-bands on.

Mike was awesome and is sending me HD v-bands with longer bolts to make the install easier.

I'm looking for someone who has done LOTS of downpipe installs and is familiar with these tight-fitting issues.

I am capable, so I'm not willing to spend a whole week's earnings for income on this, but if someone will do it for a reasonable price- I would rather not further my frustration.

Thanks!

I shouldn't have said anything about "a weeks' income".

I'm not rich, but I make more than $200/wk ☺️
