Question Manual vs auto exhaust

So I have a chance to get a turbo back 5in exhaust with 4in down pipe for $200. Possible problem is it says automatic tranny only and I have a manual. Whats the difference in the exhaust? Can I make it fit fairly easily?

Looking at an auto they look the same to me and if some companies sell exhaust that does not specify auto or manual then the differences should be minimal I would think. Any one have experience with this?

So found a thread saying that 4in down pipe won't quite fit on a manual. No word on if you can make it work or not and that still does not explain why a manual only kit won't work on an automatic.

Unfortunately I am no help to you, but I can't believe one of the guys with a manual hasn't jumped in and answered your question. On one of the tune threads I saw somebody was running a manual and there sig said they had 4 inch exhaust. Look in the Tony Wildman review thread towards the beginning. It might have been in there.

Re: Manual vs auto exhaust

I just installed a 5" straight pipe ob my 06 cclb six speed. Mine said for automatic only too. I called thoroughbred diesel and they said it would fit. It was a pretty tight fit but I got it all installed

That was probably me. I installed 4" exhaust on my truck and it went in just fine. I don't think you have anything to worry about.

Hey do you have more info on what you got? I have the same question as OP. If we could know what brand you went with and did it come with new down pipe? Thanks Wyoming!

I think brand is going to play more of a part than size in fitment (to a point). I have a silverline 3.5" dp to 4" on my 07 6 spd and I am not very impressed with the fitment at all. I tried to clock, twist, nudge, turn, the down pipe and everything else to try to get it farther away from the starter housing. It doesn't quite have a finger width of clearance but it was the best I could do.
