MBRP exhaust swap question

Hey all,

Just got the MBRP S6216409 4" exhaust to replace the stock exhaust. In their instructions, when they talk about removing the stock system, they say to either 1-cut the down pipe to remove it or else 2-remove the transmission crossmember to remove it whole and then replace the crossmember.

Has anyone "removed their transmission crossmember" for this procedure or any other procedure? If so, how difficult or dangerous is it, how did you do it, etc?

Also, does anyone have an interest in my stock exhaust system? It is near spotless from even surface rust. Been in Wilmington and Camp Lejeune, NC it's whole life except for a 5 day trip to the snow of NH, VT, NY, and PA last winter. I'll be keeping the cat (although using a test pipe) in case I need an inspection.

Thanks for any help or pointers.

I cut out my old exhaust just in front of the cross member. I bought some 9 inch sawzall blades from Harbor Freight that breezed right through it. I started out with 6 inch Dewalt blades and they kept breaking on me.

Thanks Shawn. If I cannot remove it in one piece, I will follow your lead. Saw your signature...I'm in the Navy right now. Thank you for your service.

For everyone else, any experience removing the tranny cross member so I can remove the down pipe in one piece?

I just ended up cutting it out. Anyone need a 6.0 excursion stock exhaust in great shape? Cat not included.

Taking down your cross member isnt that hard. Just remember to put a jack stand under the tail shaft when you remove it. As for me I just cut my old one off. Most people want a 4" down pipe anyway. So I have found that even when you find someone who want's the stock exhaust they just put a 4" down pipe on. Good luck with the install.

At idle, it sounds like a jet when you are sitting in the plane and they have the back doors open restocking the drinks and ice. When revving up, it sounds like a freaking tornado ripping down your street...a sweet whistle into a soft roar!
