Flo-Pro Bung Plugs

Greetings!

I recently purchased a 5" Turbo-Back (4" Downpipe) exhaust for my 2008 6.4 Ford F250 6.4l Powerstroke and my exhaust came with Bungs welded on. I want to plug the Bungs, but I don't know *exactly* what I need to do this.

Someone told me "m18 x 1.5mm" bolts from Home Depot or Lowes...but before I start running to different stores I thought I'd ask you guys. I looked on Pepboys website and Advanced Auto Parts (the only 2 "Auto Parts Stores" near me) and I didn't see anything that looked correct. Perhaps I'd have better luck in-store?

Also, if I were to have the exhaust installed without the Bungs being plugged...would it be okay to drive the vehicle to said store to buy the bolts to plug the Bungs? Will it just sound a little funny, or will it be harmful to the vehicle? Worst-case I can try to find someone to run me up to the store, but I'm just wanting to know so I can go on my own.

*Any* info you guys can give would be VERY appreciated!

I didnt do this on my superduty, but I used the brass plugs on my trail rig.

Lowes sells them and any raceshop should have em too.

You can drive it with the hole open.

Okay, so at least if I need to drive to the store I can. That's a relief!

Thanks for the information! I'll swing by the store later this evening and give it a shot.

Just in case anyone searches for this on Google in the future, here is what Flo-Pro just sent me in regards to the sizes for the Flo-Pro SS638 5" Exhaust Kit (though I image it'd be the same sizes for ALL kits, since the sensors aren't changing in size?):

"Hi there, so in the first pipe #60811 you have one M12 x 1.25 fitting and in the second pipe #60858 you have two M12 x 1.25 and one M14 x 1.25 fittings. Your best option for finding correct bolts to plug these bungs is at a pipe store or bolt supply store, you may find what you need at your local hardware store but keep in mind these are pipe fittings so some hardware stores may not have exactly what you need."

Maybe it'll help someone one day.

Cheers!

I just got off the phone with my dad and he wants me to swing by with the exhaust and weld the Bungs shut. He lives far enough away for me to try to find plugs locally, but close enough to justify driving there vs paying someone to weld it for me.

I have to swing by the auto parts store OTW home today, and I brought the 2 pipes with me that have Bungs. If they have plugs, cool. If not...I guess I'll just weld it.

I'll update this thread later tonight / tomorrow.

Thanks for the heads-up!

Thanks for the info.

I wound-up welding mine. The guys at the auto-parts store weren't really able to help with what they had in stock at the time.

I already had the old exhaust off the truck and was getting antsy...so my dad twisted my arm and we welded 'em shut.

Loaded the 210EL tune and WOW! My truck feels like it actually "breathes" now. So free-flowing.

Had a time getting everything together (pipes were a little bent and we needed to make a few cuts) but after all is said and done...well worth the aggravation.

Thanks to everyone who chimed-in. If this thread is of use to even a single person in the future then this thread was worth creating.
