dual exhaust turbo back installation

Just got my exhaust kit in today. Any tips or pointers for the installation of the new exhaust or removal of the stock exhaust and down pipe. The kit is the 4in diamond eye AL dual exhaust with 3in down pipe.

Cut the top off the downpipe and cut it from the bottom as high up as you can reach.

Somewhere on here there is a picture of where you'll need to massage your firewall (maybe even cut it) for your new downpipe to fit.

Make sure the exhaust is exactly where you want it before you clamp it on. Once you clamp those pipes theyre a PITA to get apart and back together.

Good luck! Bet its gonna sound awesome.

^^ for cutting the old downpipe off. There is a seam on the firewall that needs bent over to fit the 3" downpipe. A port-a-power is a life saver to do this with if you can get your hands on one. Guys have used a pry bar, baseball bat, you name it. It is just kind of tight to get in there, its much easier if you have access to a lift as well.

Like stated above, check clearances before clamping it down. The downpipe will be close to the firewall and engine but you don't want it rubbing. If it rubs it will be noisy and could rub a hole in the downpipe.

Please attach pics when you get it put on the truck. I would like to see it and hear from you how it went on-specifically the pipe on the driver side.

I've had good luck with the long diablo blades. Like said before, DO NOT USE THAT TORCH! It's a PITA, but it will come out.
