you'll probably have to get in there and bend back the firewall so the new DP will fit. you'll have to use a sawzall to cut out the stock DP then i used an eight foot diggin bar stuck it in the hole were the old DP was and pryed up on the firewall to make enough clearance for the new DP. its pretty straight forward and a very nice upgrade for the OBS
