Mini Maxx with 5" MBRP straight exhaust installed today.

I wanted to start off by saying 5" straights are mean sounding. The MBRP kit is a very quality kit.
I never really messed around d with bit yet because I need to do the egr delete for a Pyro reading but it sounds mean just regular driving.
I have one question, the rear O2 sensor that you unplug out of the factory pipes, I removed the whole box mounted on the frame so it would not be exposed to weather. Is there anything wrong with that?

Are you refering to the Sensor Controller as the "BOX" ???

I left mine on the truck.

Towards the rear of the factory pipe. The whole big piece there appears to be a O2 sensor which has a extension going into a electrical box mounted inside the frame. The problem is that when you unplug it the box is left wide open where the plug once was letting water and dirt in it.

Went smooth, it was a lot easier than just doing the delete pipe like I did on my 6.4.
You just have to cut one universal pipe to the length of your truck and I cut the end off a few inches due to personal preference.

I hope the FTC works fast. I can't imagine the dealer injoying the FTC breathing down there neck. We the consumer support these guys. Be tuff. Don't take any crap from them.
I believe I know what box your talking about. And I placed a small Ziploc bag over it and used electrical tape to seal tightly to avoid moisture.

Can you tell if the exhaust brake works any better when deleted?
