looking for an exaust write up

well i just got my FBD 3inch down pipe into 4 inch all the way back. But im trying to find a write up so that i can see where the fire wall was cut and what you used to bend it back with. I was going to tear into this tonight but i have already spent the other night with a project that should have take an hour and it turned into 6. Thanks for any help guys.

I just installed an MBRP turbo back last night on my 350 with a 5 speed.
Getting the old DP out is the lousiest part of the entire job. I didnt have 30 sawzall blades to cut the factory DP so I used a torch, ended up having to hack it in about 5 peices to get it out, and caught something on fire in the process(I think the A/C box )

Anyhow, I didnt cut the pinch seam on the firewall to get clearance. I had a Harbor Freight Porta Power set and used the wedgie attachment and jacked off the bellhousing of the trans to the seam to bend it. It wasnt easy. My MBRP instructions said nothing of cutting the seam(so I didnt think of it) and they said just clearance it with a hammer.. They are on drugs. Theres no way you'd get a hammer in there.

Oh dear god I knew I was going to see that when I read that post. You guys are hillarious.! I have heard you can lossen the bolts that hold the cab. move the cab back about an inch or less. putin your down pipe and either tighten up the cab or move it back and tighten it up.
