Exhaust length concern

I just order a 5'' turbo back system (4'' downpipe) from flo-pro, is there a way to clam the pipe off to short the system up for a truck with a standard box? How in the world do you get the right length with so many cab/box configurations? Or do they just ship it with enough length for a CCLB and you cut to fit any truck that's smaller?

I know I had to cut my AFE exhaust to fit my short bed. There is a certain section you modify which the directions should state. So I put everything else in and left that piece out to get a measurement for the cut. Not sure about the flo pro kit though

I ordered the 5" dp back from flo pro as well. It comes with some extra pieces so you just use the ones that fit your configuration.

Cool, so you just use the piece that works for your setup rather than cutting it down?

Well that's how it worked out for me. It comes with a curved piece that attaches to the downpipe, then a 4-5 crossover, 3 shorter pieces, and then the tailpipe section is 2 more pieces. Of the 3 short pieces, 2 of them are the same length and one is a little shorter so I would imagine they did this so they only have to carry one kit to supply all configurations. On the instructions it tell you which 2 pieces go first and then I just laid out the rest underneath until I figured out what others I needed. Hope this helps.

I have put 2 exhausts on regular cabs which is the shortest config, they come with enough piping for the longest truck so what I do is a lay the components out next the truck and start with tailpipe and down pipe at each end then just figure out which pieces fit the gap. My diamond eye kit for the 6.0 I had to cut the mid pipe for my reg cab. If you do not have a reg cab, I wouldn't think u would have to cut anything.

Thanks a lot everyone, shouldn't be to difficult minus installing the downpipe, for anyone that has installed a new downpipe your supposed to cut the oe downpipe out as far up as possible towards the turbo. I take it your supposed to use a sawzall a cut just the bend out off then I take it you can pull it down and out. Anyone that has done this?

All kits come ( except some Banks Kits ) ready to fit all the way up to a CC/LB. The way they are fitted is different from Brand to Brand, some you just remove and extension pipe others you just trim a little bit off.

Are you familiar with the flo pro?
