Installing a Turbo Back exhaust

I was wondering how hard it would be to install a turbo back exhaust? I have a MBRP turbo back the down pipe is 3.5 inch and a 4 inch back from there. I do have access to a Hoist and the ability to move the transmission cross member to have better access to the down pipe.
I am hoping to keep the stock exhaust in tact just in case I have to switch it back to stock in the future.

My ride is an 06 F250 Crew Cab short box thank you in advance

I went with the Diamond Eye 5" tb system and it was not hard at all....okay getting the first piece wiggled up to the turbo had me scratchin my head but that sucker did get up their.
Honestly this is a very easy diy job! The diamond eye system is awesome!!

so would you say about 2 hrs or so?

My dad will be helping me do it and he has been an ASE master mechanic for over 30 years but diesels are new to him so that is our only concern

ok one last question do you have to remove anything from the engine compartment other than the turbo to down pipe clamp?

No not that I remember. The best peice of advice I could give you is take your truck through a car wash that wash's the underside. And squirt some wd-40 on the rubber hangers. Your gonna reuse those and it will help.

I did the mbrp 4" w 3.5" down pipe too and it's a piece of cake, maybe took an hour or so... the wiggling the down pipe and turning it just right to get it out was the only hard part.

Also lay out the exhaust so you know which parts fit which pipes helps. and get the test pipe to lose the kitty, just lose it to the garage storage in case you ever need it later.
