AR DP installed

Just went for a drive in my f32 xdrive afyer installing AR design catted DP. The install was fairly easy.
I had it all together, midpipe to DP bolted and DP to turbo bolted but redid it just to make sure it was seated properly and will not leak. I did end up with a sore and scratched wrist from sticking my hand through the wheel well to maneuver and tight the V clamp. That was a PITA. Probably spent 30 mins messing with the that clamp.
And my neck is sore as hell lol but worth the time.

I took part in the installation process. First, we tightened DPs to mid-pipes and then DPs to turbos. They have 1.5-2mm clearance between each other. Vibration caused by the exhaust, while increasing revvs. Don't think they touch each other because in this case, I would have heard a metallic sounds. Thinking now of wrapping them with termal cloth)
