Exhaust question

Looking at a 5inch diamond eye turbo back... Should i get with bungs or without???


And how hard is it to remove the old and install the new downpipe? Can I do it by myself in the driveway?


Thank you

Which tuner do you have? Spartan and h&s don't require the bungs.

With or without bungs will depend on which tuner you get. Or get bungs and if you don't need em just plug em. If you change your mind down the road, that way you'll have them. When I went to remove my factory exhaust, I couldn't get the joints apart, so I just cut it with a sawsall. Be sure to lube up the rubber mounts with WD40 or similar will make them much easier to get out.

I haven't swapped my down pipe yet so I can't say how hard it is. I know there are some good threads on here about it though, just do a search.

I would get the one with no bungs. For the down pipe you have to cut out he stock one as it won't come out in one piece. The new downpipes come in 2 pieces. Most guys say its easy to get out by yourself. Just undo it, let it come down as low as possible and then cut it up as high as you can get. Just takes a little time I guess but from the posts doesn't seem to bad.

Installation is actually very straight forward, not much to write about. Unbolt the old, bolt in the new. The down pipe can be a little tricky though due to the tight space. You will cut out the stock down pipe and the new one will bolt in, it is 2 pieces.

Thanks, yeah the down pipe was my biggest worry really... Turned out i accidentally ordered a down pipe back kit from you guys at PTP (BTW Excellent price and super fast shipping! Thanks!) and I didnt have the patients to wait on returning it lol so I got it all put on in about 2 hours. I am super happy with it, but I will always wonder now about that down pipe lol.
