Lamborghini Gallardo Cat' Replacement:  Why you should & How to DIY (no bumper/or exhaust removed)

I swap on some Larini Clubsport catalytic converters onto my ’04 Gated Gallardo to replace the potentially “fatal” OEM cats. I managed to accomplish this without removing the bumper or the rest of the exhaust. Full walk through of removal and some installation tips & tricks. (*I am not a professional mechanic, this was the easiest way I found to perform this, you mileage may vary, proceed at your own risk).
