    How hard was it to get the old one out? I'm thinking about replacing that one next. My downstream one was so rust/heat-frozen on that Toy Connection just replaced my entire exhaust from the flange to the back. :laughing:

    My mechanic cut the heat shield off and took the exhaust off the truck and inched the old bolts off slowly, New bolts and gasket were less than $15 at the dealer so.... why not.
    Apparently the downstream one was a bitch though cause of all that.
    The upstream one by the engine was easy peasy. came right off.

    Also the upstream one is the most important.

    Yeah, that's kinda what I'm worried about. If it's anything like the condition of the downstream one, I'm in trouble. The truck is still throwing a P0300 from time to time, and since the plugs and wires are relatively new, I'm thinking it's gotta be that sensor, or the Coil Packs themselves that need replacing.

    My truck has never thrown a code or failed any smog for reasons of needing parts replaced, just idiot techs that cant understand my parts are 50 state legal.. LOL

    I try to keep it properly maintained and running smooth. but since its not my daily driver anymore I didn't realize how bad it needed a tune.

    Same here, everything I plan on doing is something I saw someone else do on here. But that's why I am here. If I still checked pirate4x4 everyday it'd be swapped to tons and 40s by now.
