5" exhaust install help.

Unless instructions to anything have visual cues for me I am about as dumb as it gets. I purchased a 5" Diamond Eye Performance exhaust system for my truck, and for the most part I am understanding it until it gets to the part where I need to measure and cut a section of pipe to fit.

Now I don't know if all kits are in the same ball park as this but could anyone help me make more sense of it?

I have the PDF of my kits install sheet attached.

If I remeber right I cut off like 4". Dont over think this system its way easy to install. Hardest part was the up pipe. (it will fit just takes some wigglin) And it does help to have some spay lube for the rubber hangers,and take your truck through a cool uncarrige car wash before you crawl under there. Money well spent.

Dude, I had the same problem with the same system. I ended up using redneck enginuity and heating both ends of the pipes hammering one end together a bit and using pliers to make the other end bigger. The pipe fit after that a little but not like it supposed to. Diamond Eye was little help and their customer service sucked. After much debate they sent me a new race pipe, but I have yet to try to put it on in fear it wont fit either. As far as how much to cut, my advice to be safe would of course be measure twice, cut once, but also cut short to give yourself some room. You can always cut a little more if it doesnt fit correctly.

Hang the from half of the kit, then the tail pipe and muffler or muffler delete pipe depending on the kit you have, take a measurement from where the front half stops to where the back half begins. Use that measurement to trim the pipe that you will use to joint the two halves together, don't forget to account for the flared ends that have to slide over the adjoining pipe. You may have to remove the rear section of the exhaust to put it back together.

5" exhaust install help.

I installed all pieces on my ccsb but the piece before the bend over the axle. That's the one I cut. I measured, cut, then installed with no problems.

Okay so I am a retard. I guess if one were to have patience I would have realized that the second down pipe piece and the one that follows do actually fit together but like I said I am an idiot.

i installed the back and then the front leaving the middle piece out, then mesured and made the cuts, i had to make 2 cuts, one 4 " and the other 10" or so.it was easy, best thing isto have 2 people and a few jack stands to hold it in place, before you start to tighten it all up. WD40 is your friend

One thing I noticed is that when those 2 pieces are connected I can slip them all the way up to the hanger which removed 11". So maybe no cutting? I am just trying to give myself false hopes at this moment seeing as I do not have a garage of my own or have a garage I can bring my truck to for a day.
