installing exhaust tonight, any pointers?

order'd my Farmboy exhaust last week. I arrived home, last night, to a nice surprise. Thanks Gus... (although it does appear the lazy delivery guys dropped the box on one end and bent one of the exhaust pipes).

any pointers or tips i should know about or is it straight forward swap?

Make sure you have a sawzall and a hammer

oh, and some silicone spray or something to help those factory hangers out of the rubber!

Basically - cut the factory exhaust where the DP bends to go out the back of the truck -- then just continue cutting it into smaller pieces to drop it out or just work it all out as one until you just have the DP left...

then - open the hood and loosen the V-clamp -- then get under the truck and whack the DP a couple times and it should practicly fall out - or at very least loosen itsself from the turbo...

then just start installing the new system from the turbo DP back...

here's a good writeup...

Yeah what Brant and Raul said. If either of you get stuck let us know - and the DP WILL come off, even though it may not act like it.

Mine came off fairly easily... nearly hit me in the head while I was laying under the truck!!! Whacked it 3 times with a rubber hammer and down she came!

well, that was easy. hardest part was getting the band clamp off, it was turned so the nut was well behind the turbo outlet. biggest thing i would recommend (and it was mentioned earlier) spray the hangers with lubricant, i used PB blaster and they slid out no problem. i cut the hanger rods off the old exhaust also so i only had to work with those instead of wrestling the whole exhaust. cut the old exhaust into 3 or 4 pieces for easier handling.

the 4" doesn't leave much room between the spare tire and the rear shock, not sure what you'd have to do if you put 5" on.

not much louder than stock, but you can really hear the turbo whine.

seemed to improve the throttle response (or maybe it is my imagination), i did notice at idle, the EGT's were abot 50 deg cooler and running at 60mph showed egt's at about 525-550. if i remember correctly, they were running at about 600 with the stock exhaust..

as a celebration of a job well done, i layed a 1111 at the end of my driveway. i should stop doing that, tires can get expensive..
