I don't see how removing that would help.  The cat/downpipe connection is
waaay up in the engine compartment.  I can see one bolt from below and
another from the wheelwell, but I have no idea where the third one can be
got to from.  There is zero clearance with the stock downpipe.

Yep, yep, yep.

Don't know specifically what system it is.  I just got it from AWE and it
was backordered from Borla for a couple of weeks so I am assuming it is the
most recent system.

Yep, just you and Josh Wyte replied and he used Meineke to do the install.
I even searched the archives before I posted with no luck on install tips.
I guess most A4 owners don't work on their own cars!
