CAT delete pipe install info...

I just got a MBRP 4" cat delete pipe and I am wondering how hard the install is going to be. I have heard rumor that they can be a pain. Any tips before I get rolling?

Just a little hint, cut the down pipe at the bend by the cat. Then the down pipe will fall right out.

if it's just the delete pipe should take less then 15 minutes. 2 clamps, slide the delete pipe in tighten clamps and your done

I already put in a 4" turbo back system that used the stock cat. But I decided it was time to get rid of the kitty. I had just heard that the MBRP pipe can be hard to put in?

If it has been awhile since you put the exhaust in you may want to spray some wd-40 at the joints so everything comes out smoothly

I just used a section of 4" pipe that was left over from a job and cut my 4" Bullydog exhaust/CAT section away and welded that puppy right up in there.

5 minutes max. its simple to do just pull the cat out and bolt this in place. it makes it easier if you take a few hangers outta the rubber slots near it so you can manuver the ehxaust around
