I took a look at the Sxth video. It looks like they had it in a similar position to what I currently have it at and just pulled it out. They might be working with more space inside than I am.

Any tips for pivoting the engine forward? I currently have the motor lifted by a jack but it appears to have not shifted the engine forward much if at all.

I'm assuming you have that rear motor mount out also to allow it to pivot? I did not do this install myself as I knew this was going to be a headache.

Yeah, I removed the large bolt from my TTR lower motor mount but I think I’ll try removing the mount completely later tonight. I remember having to use a rubber mallet to hammer it into proper alignment during install due to it being a very tight fit.

I wasn’t expecting to run into any difficulty with the install. It was fairly straight forward until it was time to remove the fat cat 😣

I tried wiggling it out with and without the engine being jacked last night but didn’t have any luck. I watched the o2 sensor as I tried to wrestle it out today and noticed that it was getting caught on everything.

I ended up attaching it back to the turbo so that I could remove the o2 sensor. Once the sensor was off I was able to pull it right out without any resistance. I should have just removed the second o2 sensor from the start.

Yea, I'm with Red in assuming you already removed the O2 sensor prior to attempting removal. O2 sensors are always a pain to break free, requiring a lot of torque, so it's best to do so while it's all still bolted in place. You would have a hard time removing it after the cat was free, unless you had a beg bench vise to lock it down.

Yeah, it was definitely my mistake for watching videos of the downpipe install. They never removed the second o2 sensor in the videos. I thought it was odd but unfortunately decided to skip the removal and follow the videos instead.
