Don't need a lift for anything on that car besides the clutch. Lift for water meth, downpipe, k04.......nope not needed.

What's needed is a desire for DIY. I have ZERO respect for people who don't even try to work on thier car.

Give it a try.... You might even enjoy yourself or maybe learn something

You're telling me you can remove a dp with ~6 inches of space? You must be tiny. I'm 6'2" 195 and there is no way I can work under the car without it being lifted. I've watched a few videos of these installs and I don't see how it's possible (besides meth) to do this without lifting the car.

I'm not poking at you. I'm seriously concerned with this because I don't have the hardware to lift my car to install my TBE as much as I want to. Getting it installed would be a little more than buying the jack so I figure..why not. I'll buy a jack kit one day.

Think you could do any of it WITHOUT the jack? Not to thread jack, but I'm curious if I could even attempt a TBE grounded.

No. Not at all.

I've beat on, pushed, pulled jostled jarred, bumped and banged on the car on jack stands. Its not coming off unless they aren't centered.

Then negotiate with them about k04. K04 hurts the price in a trade to a dealer. They don't want aftermarket cars, it is a small niche.
Does the car have it's methanol tank filled? What happens or how does it run with no meth?
