Installing MBRP 4" exhaust, any tips?

I just bought a 3" downpipe and 4" mbrp exhaust for my 96 f250. Just wondering if there is tips out there. I have heard the downpipe is the hardest part and after that everything else is easy. My first time doing the install so I thought Id ask. Thanks in advance.

Spray everything with PB or wd40 a few days in advance. Cut the old down pipe with a sawzall at the 90* and then take the "cobra head" off separately. Also I suggest an ebpv delete at the same time.

i cut my down pipe twice to get it out, make sure you have the long saw zall blade and good blades at that, i went thru 4 short ones that were cheap, but get as far down on that cobra head as you can to get it and pull the rest down

Any good write ups on how this is done anywhere? I'm new to the powerstroke world, and pictures really help my brain work. haha

I think there is a guide in the tech files. If not just do a search on the forum and google and you will find tons of info. Great cheap easy mod.
