Cat question

i am going to install a mbrp turbo back exhaust on my 07 F250 and i am going to keep the cat, but i ordered a cat delete pipe. i was wondering if it was a pain in the butt to take the cat off on for when i have to take it to get inspected or any other work done at the dealer. Does anyone else do this? and if so how hard is it, from what i see it just clamps on

I think that it took me maybe 15 min or so to swap them out. Well worth it

Go ahead and get the delete pipe.. It is very easy to swap out 2 flange bolts and a clamp, about 10min to do. I swapped my cat back in about 2 weeks ago because I thought I had warrentee work to go in for and was going in for surgery at the same time. wonder how long it would take me with one arm in a sling...

i heard that some people use band clamps instead of the stock clamps so they wont crimp the pipe or cat anyone else use these and what size do i need to get, one guy told me he used 2" but that dont make sense on a 4" exhaust

2" wide? A 4" exhaust would use a 4" clamp... At least that's my reasoning!

I used band clamps on mine instead of the regular ones and they work much better. They fit better and its a better seal around the pipe. They come in many sizes, I got mine from a local International dealer.

I swap mine on and off for smog inspection. A little tip to make it a bit easier, on the cats outlet there is a stop weld, grind it off to allow a bit more slide room, 2nd cut off about 1-1/4" from the flange studs, again to make it easier to get the room to install. With that its really a piece of cake.
