diamond eye install

I just bought a 4" diamond eye turbo back exhaust system for my 96 350 2wd cab n chassis with a 5 spd and am looking forward to ditching my leaky stoke DP and pluged up cat, I am just curious about install time and any issues and recommendations anyone my have, I have a pit to work over which should help, just curious how much time i should set aside, thanks for your help!

You need to cut the down pipe in 2 places, once at the top and once by the tranny that's basically the most important part to getting it out. You need to then cut and bend the lip on the firewall after you get the down pipe out and then push the new one up through. Then its all downhill from there with the remaining exhaust. You should set aside 4 hours in time. Good Luck .

The only way I could get the down pipe out was with sawzall blades that were like 12" or whatever they are like the longest ones I could find. I couldn't get our sawzall in far enough to cut the top of the downpipe with anything shorter.

That is interesting because somehow I was able to get it at the top and bottom of the down pipe with 8" blades. I then later continued to use the saw to cut the lip along the firewall with it in several places and then pound it one way or another. I imagine the longer ones would've probably been easier

It probably makes a difference on what kind of sawzall you have too, I didn't have a rotating one, just a regular old Milwaukee. It was easier for me that way, no sense in making it any harder than it has to be IMO.
