Cat delete install Q??

Any tips for installing an MBRP cat delete/test pipe to an MBRP turbo back system? The exhaust was recently installed so the bolts shouldn't be siezed up. TIA!

It very straight forward. If you have any mechaincal skills, it will take you 10-15 minutes. One tip for ya though, if your clamping it on the other rear end, drive it a few days, then go back and tighten it down some more. Heat does some wierd things to metal.

i actually kept the MBRP muffler even though i went with the cat delete and i still have the jet engine sound. i love the sound, but when you floor it you can really hear it open up ! !

i ordered the turbo back off road kit, so it came with the cat delete already.

another tip : if your truck is lifted, you will probably want to take 5-6" of the leftover material that you cut off of the midpipe (if you dont have a crewcab longbed) and tig weld that to the tailpipe section right where it goes to the rear of the muffler, otherwise the tip will hit your rear helper spring.
at least i had to, and also when cutting the midpipe, make it an inch longer than they tell you to, and then test fit it, because their instructions tend to leave it a little short and you have to do some mickey mousing to get a clean instal. it took me many hours and a tig welder to get mine right, but now it is super clean and sounds great !!
