Flo-Pro delete pipe question??

Ok fellas, I just got my MiniMaxx and S&B intake installed. Other than needing to go find some high speed Internet to update my firmware on the MiniMaxx, everything went good. My question is on the CAT/DPF delete pipe I got. Apparently I didn't specify that I wanted one without bungs. I was just going to leave all the probes in place on the stock exhaust in case I need to put it back on and didn't want to mess with taking them out. So would it be bad to just weld the 4 probe openings up in the new pipe?? Seems like an easy fix without having to send the pipe back for one without bungs. Any thoughts? I'm anxious to get it on this week if I get time.

I haven't driven my truck yet with the intake and. We programmer, but will test it this morning when I take the kids to daycare. Just running stock right now with the exception of the intake.

I would just buy some plugs and cap it off. There is a thread floating around here somewhere on the bung hole sizes. You could certainly weld them though if you choose to go that route

Capping them would be quicker and easier. Call PTP or H&S and I bet they know the thread sizes.

Ok. That's what I figured, but I just wanted to hear it from someone else. Now that you don't have to have the sensors even plugged in, I don't know why they even sell the pipes with bungs anymore. Much easier to just unplug and leave them in the stock pipe. My little mig welder will make quick work of those holes!

Thanks guys! Oh yeah...I got my first 10 miles logged with the S&B intake. Exhaust temps are down about 10 degrees already throughout the range and now I can hear my turbo! Not excessive, but just right!

It seems like there were just threads so maybe a bolt?

Think I'll just weld them closed. I have a mig welder and it shouldn't take more than a couple minutes and I won't have to buy any plugs.
