How to remove stock header from 1078??

Finally got some time this weekend to start to install the full Arrow Thunder and Microtec ECU that arrive a few days ago. I started with stock exhaust removal and got most of it off w/o any problems. The stock header/cat is now completely unbolted, but I couldn't get it off past the radiator and oil cooler.

Anyone have tips/tricks/pointers/link?? Thanks for your help!

When I took mine off for the same swap, I had to unclip the oil cooler mounting bracket (after taking off the plastic shroud) and just swing it out a bit. You can then slide it down and out. It was tight but do-able.

Thanks Dave. Which bracket? Do you mean the 4mm allen that connects near the oil filter, or the 2 8mm bolts that connect near the cylinder head?
