H&S Mini Maxx and Diamond Eye DPF Race Intermediate Pipe 4" Install

So I am in search of a little help installing these components.

I have followed the directions for install on the Mini Maxx but cannot find the solid purple wire under the dash to give it power. All the purple wires have a tracer on them. Can I install somewhere else that is easier?

As for the Diamond Eye Intermediate Exhaust, the exhaust has no bungs on it for the re-installation of the sensors. Do I need them or not? Also I have tried everything in the garage on trying to break these exhaust bolts loose and no luck looks like I am going to need pneumatics which I do not have. Any suggestions where I can have this installed in Tampa?

Thanks in advance for the help.

Erik

The nut end is welded to the flange try the bolt head it will turn. I've found it easier to remove the hanger bolts and seperate them after you pull it out from under the truck. I take my feet and push against the resonator (think monkey on its back) to seperate the pipe at that end.

What he said. Also, you do not need to re-install the sensors.

I didn't use air tools. Need about a 3" extension I believe and a 13mm swivel socket to get the flange apart. And like mentioned above the nut on the flange welded. So the 13mm swivel socket needs to go on the flange on the side towards the front. And nothing on the nut because it's welded. That should get get the front apart and the back side is a band clamp to disconnect the dpf back section. Swap in the other pipes with no sensors and you are good.

The mini maxx is pretty simple to install. Update it online first then plug it into the truck and follow on screen instructions Then the purple wire I had trouble finding it also but they used mine to install strobes.
