are you complaining about working on your car?

are you installing the walbro inside or outside the tank?

as far as i know you have to drop the tank or do the trap door method...which i prefer not to cut my car

you can drop the tank on jackstands in an hour easily...EASILY... its not as big a deal as everyone makes it.

why is your entire catback welded?

Not only that you can get your catback down enough with the rear dropped if it is still clamped at the Y. and you will need to clean ou the gunk from the tank while it is out.

have to drop the tank and for ur exhaust cut it reweld it or just clamp together. as for the harness you do not have to drop tank u can either run it under ur car or just cut holes in the car and run it that way to the alternator. its easy
