Just installed my APR downpipe this past weekend....DEFINITELY buy a 17mm ratcheting wrench. It makes the job so much easier. Also, taking out the dogbone mount bolt allows you to push the engine towards the front, which helps with removing the driveshaft from the giubo. I would also buy a new exhaust clamp (Part Number 1K0253141H). The bolts were so corroded on mine that I had to use an angle grinder to cut the bolts off. I reused the sleeve portion and just bought new exhaust clamps at Autozone.
