I did a farm boys kit about 6 months ago, but they should be pretty similar. You need to remove the exhaust clamp on the turbo to get the old DP off and the new one on. BE CAREFUL not to drop the bolt that tightens the clamp. I did and couldn't find it until about a month ago. Had to buy a new clamp. Also when the pipe is in place, before you tighten the turbo clamp down, make sure there isn't any pipe hitting anything. Mine was rubbing on the back of the head and on the trans dipstick. I just got a prybar in there and moved it a little and she fit perfect. Get all the pipe front to back in place before you clamp it all down tight. I had clearance issues with my rear sway bar and rear shock/spare tire. If i bottom my suspension out too much the pipe hits the sway bar. Sorry to go on and on. Hope this helps. If you need anything else just ask

Its a horseshoe looking clamp inside. It pinches the downpipe to the turbo. I found it easier to use the new bolt with the old clamp. The new clamp i bought i couldn't get to fit around the turbo flange and the pipe flange.

The flange on the turbo and on the pipe both go in the middle of those metal bands that you see.
