Smallen up your signature picture, please! LOL

As for the downpipe, you'll need to PARTIALLY lift the cab, cut it, or pull the trans.

I believe you NEED to run the EGT sensors, I may be wrong on the Black Maxx. The factory calibration LOOKS for EGT 13 -- see the announcement in the Performance Parts section. It bases engine overtemp/shutdown on EGT13 -- it's a failsafe.

Program your truck, and leave EGT13 (the last one after the DPF) unplugged. Start the truck, let it run for a couple minutes. Shut it off. Re-start it. Do this a couple times. If it continues to start, you don't need that sensor. If it won't crank/start -- you'll need to wait an hour before it'll start again or follow the directions in the aforementioned thread -- if this is the case you NEED to leave those sensors plugged in, and you might as well just put the sensors in the pipe.

Hope this helps.

The downpipe needs to be cut unless you plan on lifting the cab or moving the transmission. With the Black Maxx you don't need the sensors on the exhaust, just find bolts to fit the holes.
