Help with my FBD 4" exhaust

I bought a FBD 4" turbo back kit with cat delete from Gus a couple of weeks ago. I ordered it late on a Monday, and got it on Thursday. Great job Gus. Anyways, I had planned to install it today but I had a few issues. The instructions that came with it are worthless, and none of the parts are labeled. My brother and I laid out everything I was sent, and we just couldn't figure out which piece goes where after the down pipe. I don't even know If everything is there, or if something is missing? I took some pictures of what I have. Does it look like everything is there? Could someone tell me the order the pipes go from left to right in the first picture?

Thanks

Pipes look like:

1-3-2-4-Muff-6-5
Downpipe to tailpipe. Left to right.

The two 3 1/2 in clamps connect 1 to 2 & 3to 4.
The short hanger goes above the cat pipe
4 looks like it has to be cut to length.
One 4in clamp on #4 to muffler.

Gets sketchy here.
I think the long hanger goes on the muffler to #5
#5 goes over the axle and connects to #6 with the other plain clamp.
The T hanger goes somewhere over the axle.
I assume the angled hanger goes toward the tailpipe.

This is all just from memory but it should get you pretty close.

1, 3, 2, 4, 6, 5? IF I had to guess. The muffler would go before number 5, and you would use the "T" clamp on the back side of the muffler.

The long straight pipe is probably your intermediate pipe, which would be cut to fit your wheel base.

Call gus tomorrow, I'm sure he can help you out.

I'm just guessing.

First time I've seen one too. Mine is an MBRP. I just like puzzles.

Good Luck!

tip make sure you have 10inch blades for your saw then cut as high up on down pie as you can -it will fall out -if not just small wake to under side to lossen from turbo- also the secound pipes slides in and out of 3rd pipe makes it alot easier then messureing then cutting- also use a ppiese of wood beteen dp and firewall until tight - I put mine on (ounce I used a 10inch blade ) it took me alone less then an hour not kiddin easy

Looks pretty simple to me, 132456 just as said above. I'm about to order one from gus probably next week.

I'm pretty sure it is 132465 not 56. Where would the tailpipe be?

We had to cut the flanges off of one of them to delete the converter, but I think what was said earlier is the correct order. The last pipe on the right is #5 that hooks over the rear axle. The next to last goes in it and out behind the tire on mine. If this doesn't help email me at jtngwright@aol.com and I will walk you through it off of my extended cab. I actually took mine to a muffler shop and we [the owner and I] worked it on together. I also reccommend using some gasket maker sealant or high temp stuff to glue the washers on the clamps to the rubber hangers from Ford after your done. At certain rpm the exhaust vibrates the loose hanging washers and it sounds like the exhaust is coming loose. After you drive it a 100 miles or so retighten all of the clamps, I had one that worked loose or wasn't tightened enough the 1st time. I like mine all in all. It's not loud at all even without the converter and sounds similar to stock but flows way better. The turbo seems to come in a little better and has a wistle to it. The exhaust also has a faint flowing whistle when you stand beside it like the truck is just mean. You can't hear it though in the truck, just the whistle of the turbo from the cai and the roar of the engine like normal. I highly reccommend the exhaust but I haven't heard anything else on a deisel other than stock.
