My Diamond Eye 5" says 1999.5-2003.5

I have an early 99. I thought that the 5" (K5322A) fit everything but the early 99 with a manual transmission. I think it will be fine but I don't want to go cutting the old off until I know. The downpipe should be the same shouldn't it?

I found out the hard way and cut my stock down pipe to get it out and install mbrp 4" on my 2000 with 6speed and found it wouldn't fit between up pipes and bell housing part where starter is. Needless to say it rumbles now with lots is whistle lol. It's agood thing that truck has to go into tranny shop. So I will install it then

I think it will fit. I'm just wondering if the new downpipe will bolt up to the early turbo. Thanks!

My 5" Diamond Eye fit with no problems in my E99. Downpipe clamp was a huge pain to get back on, but thats to be expected.

It just wouldn't fit I even took out cross member and ****ed Trans as far over as I could and no go. Fought with it for 2.5 hours. It would get stuck between up pipes and bell housing of starter

Almost done. Holy **** me batman! My situation was a little different. The down pipe was actually the easiest part. Lining up the pipes to fit and miss from touching everything was/is a PIA! Barely fits past the spare tire and rear shock. Infact, I lowered the spare, moved it away, and reeled in back in to fit. Gonna have to mod something with the spare so it doesn't work its way over to the pipe, we're only talking about an inch. Anyway, ran out of sunlight and will finish in the morning. All I have left is final fitting and alignment and tightening clamps. I think the hanger/clamp in front of the hanger where the muffler mounts is jacked. I think they welded the rod/hanger part upside down. Don't think I need it though, its pretty stout still without it.
