MBRP 5" Exhaust

Got my MBRP 5" Exhaust delivered today. Got it with the black 6" OD tip. My truck is black so I was thinking I'm going to buy some High-Temp Engine Enamel in black to spray the part of the pipe that is visible near the rear of the truck, before I put the black tip on there. Any advice for the install tomorrow if the weather holds up?

I just got mine in too and was wondering the same thing. I wouldn't spray engine enamel though. Buy Header enamel instead, it with stands higher temps. Now how long it may last in weather and stuff, I don't know. Just my 2 cents.

Well got the exhaust installed today. What a b*&% to get the old muffler out where it bends over the axle. I learned that I have to jack the truck up by the receiver hitch and not by the rear axle. Also learned (once the rear axle attempt wasn't working) that I don't know where my locknut key is for my tires. So after I couldn't remove the rear tire, and couldn't get the muffler out by jacking up the truck under the rear axle, I tried propping the jack up on some lumber and jacking the truck up under the receiver hitch. That got me up high enough where I could remove the rear shock and push the exhaust out towards the front. Then...MBRP didn't do a great job packaging up the kit so as I was installing each section, I had to use vise grips to straighten out the lips of the pipes that got bent during shipping. Oh and it poured down rain right in the middle of all this for about an hour. Once I finally got it all put back together and tightened up, took her for a drive. I will say I LOVE the way it sounds. I've gotta get under the truck tomorrow and check for any leaks and then paint the tail section and be done with it. EGT's are lower, throaty sound, haven't got to stomp on it yet but I'm sure it won't be a noticeable difference.

Did you replace the sensors or leave them zip tied up? I am about to install mine if it gets here tomorrow or thursday and can't wait. I've been soaking everything almost daily in PB blaster and WD40, so hopefully I don't break any of the sensors when removing.

Also I am guessing the answer is yes, but did you use the clamp from the last portion of stock exhaust, where the exit section connects right after the axle? Mine didn't come on the truck(used) and I am guessing I will need a 5 inch exhaust clamp, which only 1 place stocks locally.

Thanks!

I forgot to mention, use wd40 on those rubber things and they slide right off. Nothing from the stock exhaust is reused except the hangars that are mounted to the truck. You will need to cut the mid pipe down depending on the body and box length of your truck. I used a sawz all.

Zip tied sensors up. Don't need them.

Thanks Tony, roger that. I believe my SCT does require the sensors so I had the DPF with bungs. Thanks for the good writeup.

When I did mine I had a hell of a time getting the stock exhaust off the hangers, so I just unbolted all of the hangers and brought them out from under the truck then removed them. A lot easier this way.

It started snowing when I did mine. Was freezing my a$$ off. To make it go quicker I just cut the turn down section over the axle. Took a couple of mins where it would have taken much longer doing all of the jacking as such. My stock will never go back on. Not while I own the truck anyway.
