Dimensions of MK6 GTI stock exhaust

I'm trying to decide whether I need to rent a pickup, suv, or minivan in order to take my stock parts home from my turbo upgrade install (decided on K04).

Does anyone know the size and weight of the stock cat back exhaust? I am not going to get it cut, just in case I need to put it back on or I trade the GTI.

The length and width of the MK6 GTI is 166"X70", so is a good approximation of the size of the stock CBE 80"x65"? Sizing from: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Volkswagen_Golf_Mk6

Also how much does the stock CBE weigh? Can a sedentary, desk job guy like myself carry it or will I need two people?

I will also be bringing back the turbo in box, FMIC in box, TBE box, and RAI DP.

I was going to rent a pickup but my apartment's parking spaces are tight but I might be able to fit a small - midsize pickup but I know a Toyota 4-runner fits because my neighbor next to me drives one.

Thanks.

catback fits in the gti with the rear seats down, can also put shit on top of it. Catback isn't heavy, definitely can be carried by yourself.

yes, i've done this before.

NGP fit mine into the back of my car after the install of my APR TBE. They had some foam and stuff to make sure it didn't rub on anything inside my car. Fit fine.
