New exhaust!!

So I just got my exhaust in, 4'' system with 3" downpipe Im going to install it next monday, any suprises I should expect? I looked at the installation instructions and it recomends to cut the stock downpipe in half to get it out...kind of want to avoid this

If u don't cut it want come out. A small sissorjack can help to stretch the opening. Make sure u cut the pinch seam on the body makes it give alot easier. Don't forget to heat wrap the dp. That's pretty much it. The dp install is a pain in the a$$.

Mine was easy. The downpipe was already replaced on mine. So the pinch weld was already bent.

when i did my 3" mbrp down pipe i had to cut the stock down pipe twice to get it out and then use a porta power to stretch the opening...it was a PITA but once the DP is in the rest goes really easy
