    How the hell is this possible to tighten up the drivers side collector without taking half the car apart? The egr tube is in the way and its to tight to use a regular wrench. If anyone can point me in the right direction I'll be more then happy to fix it the right way instead of some exhaust sealer crap

    Didn't know if it was like the passenger side where its easier to pull the starter to get to pop a new gasket in

    Pulling starter out definitely makes exhaust manifold work alot easier!
