DE downpipe ....

I'm looking to replace my pancake down pipe, so I can finish my exhaust system.

I have alot of FlowMaster 3" pipe with various bends laying around I could build one, but considering my time ... sometimes prefab is the way to go.

Diamond eye has a two piece'r on evil bay...

Thoughts ?

don't get MBRP several people have had fitment issues. i have heard that DE and Tymar are both good. and get a band clamp. it makes it easier if it needs to come apart

And the diamond eye's tailpipe is easier to adjust.

I have a diamond eye in my f250 was a huge pain to install, but it was my first time, I just installed an mbrp and went in in an hour, got the mbrp off amazon for $85 shipped, and only thing I did to install was bend the firewall back a bit with my cheater pipe, to remove the downpipe I found it very easy to cut the pipe 3-4 inches away from the turbo, maybe an inch away from the dipstick for the trans, and used my cheater pipe to bend the firewall back around it, get under the truck, unbolt it from the cat, and twist it a little and pull it rite on outta there

my MBRP fits like a glove. i didnt even have to bend the pinch weld, before my turbo swap anyway. this has been talked about before. every cab and motor placement is slightly different.
