new exhaust

hey guys just getting around to putting n my new exhaust this weekend (hopefully) its a 5" with a 4" down pipe. heard a lot of people saying that putting 4" downpipe in is a real pain in the ***. some have just cut stock exhaust out of the way and others say I need to drop trans cross member??? planning on doing this in the drive way with a buddy and some beers so really hope its not a HUGE undertaking.. any advice or what I could expect from those who have done it would be a help..

thanks, Aaron

It's pretty simple just make sure the downpipe is flush up onto the turbo.

Just cut the downpipe off before the cross member, if you plan on keeping it jack up the trans n move the cross member out of the way. Keep your cat it's worth money.

What year truck? There is a stud in the firewall that needs to be cut off of the 03-04. The 05-07 will go in without any problem.

I can attest to this. Mine is a 2006 and last weekend I installed a 4" turbo back with 4" down pipe and it went in just fine. I did use some small pieces of wood to keep the down pipe spaced away from the cross members while I was adjusting and tightening everything up. So far no rubbing anywhere.

Should be no problem at all. My dad and my buddy did mine in less than 3 hours from start to finish, including removal. I supervised and played gopher since my arm was in a sling. lol.
