cat delete help...

I'm trying to put on MT cat delete pipe from diamond eye. I can't get it to slums in the pipe far enough to get it to hook up the flange. Is there any tricks????

do you mean that you cant get it to go far enough back to get it to line up on the front flange. when i did mine today i unhooked the holders at the cat and the one right before the muffler and then restled it in. much easier.

Ok, I'll risk the cat.

What does it mean "to slums"?

Just curious.

mine is a work truck that we are experiencing with. it had a regular sound with the cat on. and now it sounds like a vacuum at the tailpipe. to me it spools a little faster and the rpm's drop slightly faster. with my truck weighing in at 9980 pounds with all the tools im hoping it runs a little bit better. now when the egr deletes are in, turbo cleaned, and fuel pressure reg and bolts in we are hoping all our inherit problems will be gone. tie wraps are gonna melt pretty quickly. i did mine with flex pipe and band clamps.took a whole hour.
