Just installed down pipe

Ok so I won May 08' ROTM and recieved a $75 gift certificate. So I put it towards a new 3" Down pipe I bought it from ITP diesel I installed it last night and even just starting it up and pulling out of the car port I could feel a huge difference in how the engine can breathe a lot easier. I will tell more as I drvie it.

97' F250 Powerstroke Isspro boost gauge, flat bed.
In the Works... Custom running boards, and front bumper. Built by me!
Soon will have a down pipe, and possibly tunes or an ECU reflash.
