Hello! New on the board! I have owned 2 MKII MR2s over the years and after driving a commuter car for years, I pulled the trigger on a new 2020 BRZ with the PP. The purchase was in July 2020 and just now getting around to the mods - less than 5k on the car, ATM.

I went to 86Speed and bought: a Fujitsubo Authorize R Dual Cat-back Exhaust, Tomei Expreme UEL header, Tomei overpipe, and an ECUtek tune.

Hopefully my goodies come soon. I do not have the room or tools to do the header, front pipe, and exhaust. Does anyone have an estimate for how many hours of shop labor this would be?

Not too concerned about price, just don’t want to get ripped-off. I intend on investing in tools and some other things soon to cut down on shop costs.

Been creeping on here for months and happy to finally have something to say!

Welcome! I estimate it would take a full Saturday for me to do an exhaust like that, so it would be reasonable for a shop to be able to get it done in 4-6 hours depending on how rusted/rotted/seized everything is and if no other parts like gaskets need to be ordered last minute- I highly recommend replacing all the gaskets while pulling it apart to alleviate issues down the road.

Thanks, soundman98! Always love your post around here.

It’s a 2020, so there better not be any rust haha. I live in a small town and their is a custom muffler shop here that I am going to price-out for the install. They do a lot of fabrication for exhaust, but I’m sure they would take my money just to bolt things on. I agree with you, 4-6 hours sounds reasonable when you have access to all the tools, gaskets, and a lift.

Thanks again!

This is the best I can do for now until I get it off the jack stands.

Here is a link to the build process.

Dear Diary,

Well due to weather delays my exhaust, headers, and tune are not coming till next week. So I am just refreshing Fedex-tracking like an insane person to see when my originally overnight delivery will show up (currently stuck in IN)

Good news is 86Speed located me a Corsa exhaust! The Fujitsubo exhaust I wanted would have taken till April/May to arrive. The Corsa is coming from PA and sent out today.

Beautiful! Really well done, looks OEM. A perfect mod for all the stache haters.

It is looking more and more like I won’t get my exhaust in time for my mechanic appointment, so I will just have them install the headers and I’ll do the catback myself.

Problem is, I do not have a decent/safe jack stand setup. Does anyone have a jack stand or a ramp they can recommend me to get under the car enough for things like oil changes and exhaust work?

Thank you!

People will steer you towards good brand ones, and it is absolutely up to you in which route you take (safety is in fact, the most important in this case). I would say the simplest thing to do is look up jacks / jack stands on Amazon. They have plenty of options including the best kind.

Just from a 2 second look on Amazon, some examples of great cheap ones are below. I bought my stuff at Harbor Freight and have never had a problem. Many will say that's the cheap way to go, so if you don't like that, what I provided below may be better. Or you can spend 50-200 more bucks and get the best of the best.

Jack: Pro-Lift F-767
Jack stands: Pro-LifT T-6903D

Thank you, gentlemen. I ended up going to a rent-a-lift place today and installed my Tomei UEL headers and flashed the ECU with ecutek (Delicious) Hell yeah. I’ve never done more than an oil change or spark plugs, so I feel proud.

Problem is: there was no check engine light immediately after the header install; flashed the ECU in the parking lot. I drove it home and it felt amazing. It was a 25 minute drive and all good till I pulled up to my block and I threw a code P0507 - high idle rpm? I thought the tune was suppose to fix that stuff? Zero issues driving, so I cleared it, drove another 20 minutes and it’s still off.

Do I let delicious tuning know if it comes back on? Sorry, I know this should go on the tuning sub and I’ll throw it up there if it needs an in-depth response

EDIT: just started up to go to the store and the code came back. Bleh.
