Flo pro dpf/cat install problem anyone else?

My rear pipe in the kit is 140 thousands to big and will not slide in the factory exhaust! Real bummer! Has anyone else had this issue? Remedy? I am hoping the muffler shop can shrink it for me in the morning but not sure how they do this is it a die and press deal,roller, can it be done? But was wondering if anyone else has had this problem, I find it hard to believe I just got a pipe that wasn't shrinked quite enough. Being Sunday I haven't been able to reach out to anyone and have a note into both PTP and FloPro
Thanks Jeff

So did you order a DPF Back exhaust? What is your exhaust part number?

Bevel the edge of the pipe with a file and hammer the back of the muffler to get the system to slide over the pipe.

It's a pain, but they're all like that... Flo Pro, Diamond Eye... Ford, Dodge...

I apologize, I just re-read the thread title. I have never installed just a dpf/doc delete from any company other than powerstroker67 and it fit like a glove.

Really....how would it ever come part. I start to pound on it and it is tight and barely started to go

Hammer it back off

Problem us, Flo Pro uses those cheap clamps that don't bite the pipe, so coming apart will be difficult.

6.7 Ford delete pipe fits fine because it has a bolt flange on the trail end vs. the slip fit on the 6.4

I like the band clamps, mine hold great. But if you read the instructions it does say to tack weld the joints. Looks 10x better than the conventional u bolt clamps that mis-shape the pipe

My Flo Pro DOC/DPF delete pipe was a bear to install as well. I had to hammer on the back of the muffler to get maybe 1.5 inches of FP pipe in existing exhaust. I bolted the old clamp back on not that needed a clamp on that joint. It's not going anywhere. The rear piece of pipe should have been expanded to fit over the existing or necked down to fit inside. I didn't measure but it was virtually the same diameter.

Gotta love a "bolt on" that requires welding
