Today I installed a 5" Flo-Pro exhaust. This was much harder and took longer than I was expecting. Maybe it was because I was alone, freezing my butt off (snow flurries), or laying on a hard a$$ cement driveway. I'm never going through this again so I used a hacksaw on the back section instead of jacking up and moving shock. I'm sore from my hands to my hips.

All I can say about the performance now is WOW!!! It's like getting out of a Fiesta and into a GT Mustang. I have my tuner set at 210 and EL. I was not sure which lockup to chose. I don't pull or haul heavy loads at the moment. Any suggestions? I did notice I will have to change out the CAI if I wanna "play" a little. I floored it once and it sucked in the filter minder.

I jacked up the rear end via the receiver and the exhaust came out, nothing to move, nothing to cut. Ratcheting straps to hold the DPF when I removed it after disconnecting the 4 connectors. It's not that bad. Congrats.

Not really a good enough filter to replace in the stock airbox to support the higher tunes.

If the airbox is modified it won't suck down the minder. Not saying a modded stock box is best, but it's a start until he can buy one of the afe stage 2's or s&b
