Anybody have downpipe for sale in CT area

My turbo blew up yesterday so i had to overnight a powermax in and I thought it would be an easy night of taking the cat off and pulling the turbine out shot off my old turbo. Problem is it is wedged in the down pipe real tight.

Any way to remove the stock down pipe with out hacking it?

LMK asap, need to get truck running soon
2003.5- bone stock

Since nobody addressed your question... No, I don't think the stock downpipe can be removed without cutting it, but I'm not positive on that. How far down the pipe is the exhaust wheel wedged?

you have to remove that crossmember to avoid cutting it.... i highly suggest cutting it if youre trying to decide between those two options.

Might be a good time for a downpipe upgrade.

I certainly agree, but if he needs a stock in a pinch i've got one for him

give me a call man if you need that stock exhaust, maybe it will get you by so you can get the truck on the road

if you have airtools and a jackstand that crossmember can be out in 5 minutes. there's really nothing to it. i would not try and get it off on the ground though, the downpipe has to swing pretty low to slide out.

Thanks for the help, I was able to snake an aircraft cable through to the bottom and attach a shackle to it. I then used a piece of heavy metal tube as a slide hammer to get the thing out. Man that impellar corksrewed itself right down there tight. Probably didn't help that the downpipe was 600 or so degrees when it launched and only 35 when I was removing it.

On a side note, the turbo that I paid to have overnighted did not arrive. Spent the time waiting for it hacking in my new harley headlights
