    Dropping sump on Gen 2 with Akra full system?

    Has anyone dropped/replaced the sump on a Gen2 with Akra full system? If so can you do it without removing the headers from the engine. It looks like it might be possible to get at the sump just by removing the end can and link pipe.

    I've got a slight oil weep. Looks like the BMW instant gasket has failed and it just needs new gasket sealant. Seems straighforward to do if headers can stay on.

    Sump Removal

    To remove the sump you are best off removing the collectors from the exhaust. Akrapovic exhaust systems are made up of three parts. Headers, collectors and link pipe/exhaust. You should be able to remove the latter two parts, leaving the headers in place, allowing you space to remove the sump.

    See linked diagram below.

    Hi scooby, where did you get the stainless bolts? Are they the same torx headed with a flange?
