Delete pipe question??

Just making sure on something...do all 4 probes get disconnected when removing the DOC/DPF and installing the delete pipe?? My delete pipe came with bungs and I wanted to double check before I welded them all closed. Working on this tonight, so if anyone knows, a quick confirmation would be great.

Thanks guys!

Yes, they can all be unplugged.

I welded all the bungs shut on my AFE pipe as well.

Ok. Thanks. Is there any trick to getting that pipe in place without removing the muffler portion of the pipe? I'm not having much luck. I was able to get the stock pipe out in one piece, but as usual, things always come apart easier than they go together!

Use a tiedown to pull it back as far as it will go so that you can slip the pipe in. When you release the tie down, it should pull back forward and you should be able to attach the 2 flange bolts up front.

Unless u have an sct tuner, then u need the sensors in the bungs. If you have a h&s or spartan weld them up and unplug them. I just had my dad pull the exhaust back while I slid it back into place. I have a 5" dpf back exhaust if that makes a difference

I have an H&S tuner and I already welded them up. I have a downpipe-back delete pipe, so stock muffler is staying in place. I'll try hooking a ratchet strap to it so I can slide the new pipe in...doing it by myself. Worst case I'll have to drop the muffler section off.

If you don't have access to a welder, you can probably find some short bolts to plug them with. Maybe some copper crush washers if your worried about air leaking at those points.

I have welder...welded them all up. Got it all put in tonight and took my first drive. Quite a bit different, in an awesome way! Sounds good and the throttle response is like night and day compared to stock. Just running my MiniMaxx on the mild setting for now.

Thanks to everyone for all the advice!

Not to hijack but I have a question about my DPF delete pipe also.

My tuner and intake already came in and I have them installed already. Could I go ahead and remove the cat and DPF pipe? Would it be ok to drive it without the DPF delete pipe? It should be in Monday but I have the time today to get started and I want it off!!

Thanks
