Adding a 5" MBRP strait pipe today + BONUS

OK, heres the scene.... I finally made up my mind that I wanted a 5" turbo-back, muffler and cat delete exhaust for Big Blue. I ordered it on Valentines day from XDP during their 14% off sale. It was scheduled for delivery yesterday, so I ditched work early to make sure I was home for the brown truck. Every thing showed up on time and in perfect condition. So I figured I'd run and grab a set of filters and service the truck this weekend while I was at it. At the last minute, I decide to shoot across town to the local REV-X dealers shop to grab a couple more bottles. I grab my bottles, start walking towards the door as I'm BS-ing with the guy, and thats when I seen them. Of all things to be sitting on the shelf, its an 03 turbo and pedistal -just sitting there, BEGGING to come home with me. I dont have to tell you that I couldnt find it in my heart to just leave them there all by themselves. So, I dug deep, rescued those lonely parts, and out the door I went. I made one more stop at the local Cornbinder dealer to grap the turbo install/mounting kit and as fate would have it, it was IN STOCK. Today is gonna be a great day! I'll post some pics later tonight.

Here's an 03 and an 06 pedestal side by side. 03 is on the right.

Nice score!!!

I found one on here that was $200 for the turbo & pedestal so I bought it and then found out it was water damaged beyond repair.

Wait till you hear it for the first time with the 5".... Since I redid my hg's I haven't had a chance to charge my ac (South Florida is HOT) an I could care less.....All my windows are open.. the sound that that turbo makes is great. Down low in a parking lot is the best. My local bar is full of big toys an lets just say it's a head turner.

Are you gonna upgrade the drain tube? Cheapo insurance

Enjoy bro!!!!
