Installing Exhaust

Well, I got halfway with the exhaust today. I got the old one off. The DP was the hardest part to get off as stated before. Everything else was cake. Only took an hour to get the whole system off. Then it started to rain and the temp is around 20* all of the sudden. So I've got a truck sitting in a parking lot with an open turbo.

Tried putting on the new DP but the firewall def needs moved. What did you guys use to move it back? A hammer just ain't gonna fit!

If I don't do open turbo, I'll do open DP.

I didn't think my truck sounds very good open turbo they sound better with a little bit of pipe on them. As far as moving the firewall if you have a portapower that works great. Otherwise wood and hammers and prybars

A portable hydraulic press is the easiest way to explain it
