cut it at the bottom of the firewall. then pry the tab on the top of the DP off the turbo and it'll almost fall right out. other than that it's pretty straight forward. if your are doing it by yourself, put the top half of new the DP up from the bottom and wedge it in there so you can jump up top and grab it then put the band clamp on there snug enough so it wont fall of but not so tight to where you can't turn it by hand from underneath. jump back under the truck and slide the second half up on there and put the clamp on it. DON'T tighten anything till you have the mid pipe in the right spot. the snug the DP up. hope that helps.

Have a buddy, wife, child, girlfriend, neighbor kid, SOMEONE......... help with the downpipe. I did mine by myself and it was a PAIN!!! Other than that, just take your time, everything should go right into place.

Note - I did a 4", the 5" may be a little trickier.

ehhh not really, but you can still pass inspection with a big exhaust that doesnt really change anything. now a chip or big sticks will fail you in emissions lol

the only way to pull it out w/o cutting it is to take out the trans x member. i think it would be easier for you to just cut the dp out, then get 3.5"-4" couplers for the cat to go back in when you need to.
