Questions about my new Ex...

I have some questions about my new Ex...

1) What is the tire pressure recommended?

2) My hood is flexing at high speeds - what is te remedy for that?

3) How hard is it to install 4" exhaust from Turbo back?

I will add more as the come along...

the hardest part about a turbo back is the down pipe if you get a good brand that fits well and a buddy to help, you can do it in a couple hours

Is there any welding required?

Thanks for the information. That means my mechanically inclined friend can help me do it. Question is now, what kind to get for the Ex. I was thinking CAT back to eliminated the hassle with the turbo. Question is will I still get the performance gains I am looking for, mainly mileage increase. I do not want to take the Cat out yet. If I do decide to go with the Turbo-back, is there a kit that you can still use the Cat?

Thanks,

GG

All kits still utilize the cat. If you don't want it, you can buy a cat delete pipe. The downpipe is the biggest PITA of the whole thing and even that only took about two hours (once we cooled down and had a beer only 15 minutes... but that's another story). All in, we were done in about 6 hours.

BTW, I bought the 4" Farmboy's Diesel exhaust from Gus. It went on easily and all the hangers slipped right into place.

if you do go for the TB exhaust look at the downpipe, right in front of the firewall..the early 6.0 X's had pipe wrap on them..before you try to pull the DP get all of that stuff off..it's held on with metal straps and i couldn't drop mine without cutting it out..wear glasses and gloves..it's really itchy and nasty coming out in small pieces..after that, a sawzall cut where the DP turns horizontal and it'll drop right out..my MBRP went in easily, and i was by myself..

also, most 4" TB systems have a 3.5" downpipe..you won't see much, if any benefit from a 4" DP..the stock DP is 3" where it isn't crushed..i think that's what the wrap is for, to hide the smash marks when they built the rest of the truck around the exhaust..

have fun,,
