Aftermarket exhaust for 96 PSD 5sp dumptruck

I want to put a turbo back exhaust on my 96 PSD with 5sp transmission. I am looking for suggestions and am wondering if they make any kits that don't require moving, unbolting, transmission to fit in the down pipe. Thanks.

If it is a zf5 speed there should be no reason to touch the transmission. Is the truck a cab and chassis or a pickup that has a dump bed.

It doesn't make much sense, the zf5 speed has a lot more room around it than the e4od.

ya i bought the diamond eye 4" dual exhaust for my 97 with a 5spd and they did not ask me if i had a stick or auto and I had no problems fitting it in. all i had to do was cut the top off the down pipe that goes to the turbo to make more room for getting it out.

Usually takes me about three hrs, The worst parts are cutting the old one out and bending the cab seam to make clearance for the new dp.

Last time I did one it took rougly two and a half hours. An hour to get the old "cobra head" downpipe out, a half hour to beat the firewall into submission, and an hour to mock up and weld the sytem.
