      If you're tuned Stage 2 you should already have an aftermarket downpipe. If it came with a high flow cat, then replacing it with a test pipe is not worth it.

      Looks like by going this route, we'd need to get the cover plate for the DV, or a relocation kit.

      Twist it while pulling at it. You're not going the break the barb with your hand. The steel line will flex long before breaking, and if you do, you can simply bend it back.

      Any check engine lights? Do you have a way to check/clear them?

      If you have a CEL, find out what the code is.

      I think a few of the points to check that Brian mentioned needs the connector connected to the ECU for continuity/power. As he said, use a test light to probe.
