help - 4" downpipe

Maybe it's i am a moron, but I am installing the 4" two piece downpipe and the new 4" ss exhaust i bought. I am doing by myself which is a pita. I can't for the life of me find a write up on the removal of the old downpipe. I have removed the rear most clamp on the pipe at the back of the turbo and am not sure what to do next. I removed the screws on that little heat shield but am unsure if should removed the fuel line right there or how to get the damn thing out of there other than prying the **** out of it. I don't drink anymore so this is a real bit#% to get done. Previously could have finished in an hour with a BFH now i think to much. Anybody still awake that could help will be much appreciated.

Your going to either have to cut it out or slide the tranny over. Powerstroker67 on here has a write up on how to remove it in one piece. Not sure what he titled the thread, if he even started a thread on it. He may have just made a post about it in a thread.

sperjhn... I know exactly what your going through, really figured I could complete the replacement in a couple hours.... 4hours later, not the easiest modification but was worth it.

So I got everything installed and operating maybe Its me but seems to be well worth the money bottom end is much better since adding the big tires and seems to run 50 to a 100 rpm lower running 70 down the interstate according to dashdaq I will provide a full write up with socket and wrench sizes so that next individual will be educated on the removal process and the install but I am extremely pleased with quality of powerstroker67 pipe with ceramic coating and the performance of it

It was not so bad I wouldn't do again just takes some work would have been easier if had not been alone but it didn't take too long I spent 1.5 hrs last night and about one today. I was installing full 4" afe down pipe back exhaust as well though so spent a while last night disassembly of whole exhaust.
