DFW area: Installation of downpipes?

I am too lazy to get under the car in this 100+ weather to install back my DP when i removed it couple weeks ago for a dealer visit. Any shop in the area that will do this other than Cobb? Cobb price was between $250- $350, depend on the DP. I sold my VK DPs and now i have the AA DPs.

Do what I did. I put my car in the garage on a Friday night, then opened the door between my laundry room and garage (and left the garage door closed). Saturday when I woke up I had an air conditioned garage to work in. Made the work easy to do at 72deg F

Lol, what if one doesn't have a set up like that? Anyways, I got mine done at Cobb. It was $200. I have AR downpipes.

Probably because I have AA's and they were a bitch for them to fit perfectly...

Is it really that difficult to install some downpipes? I mean, I get that it's at the back of the engine bay.. but do you need to yank the engine or something?

I guess I'll put it back by myself than. Who said the AA Fitment are bad? I had AR 3", VK 2.5 and now the AA 3". The VK was harder to put in because the the length. Other than that AA and AR has the same Fitment. I'll stop by Fry to get me one of those portable ac unit. Hope that will do the trick.

I say the AA fitment isn't as good as AR. It is much harder to fit the clamp on and the pipes are very difficult to align right.
