1995 Powerstroke

I need some instruction to put in a stock downpipe for the turbo to where the cat use to be. It is very tight, should i take the turbo off and it pipes for room or is the a easier way?

I dont think you can install any downpipe without modifying the firewall or moving the engine. I had to cut the top off my factory downpipe to remove it when I installed my 3".

Why are you going with the stock downpipe? I would replace it with a 3" since it has to be done.

The way i do 'em is a little involved, but it seems to work well on the trucks I have worked on. Remove the nuts from the motor mounts, raise the engine a little and rock it side to side until you get the clearance you need. It only takes a little while.

i agree with pipelayer. why go with a a stock downpipe? that should be one of the first mods (exhaust). the stock flat pipe is to restrictive.
