Putting in my MBRP 4" Tomorrow- Any tips?

Hey guys , i just want to say ive only been on these forums for a few months now and yall have really helped me with my truck. In no time i have put on my AFE Stage 2, and my 2007 harley headlights conversion. So thanks

Now tomorrow me and my friend are putting in my MBRP 4" TURBO BACK STRAIGHT PIPE exhaust tomorrow and i was wondering if anyone has done this and has ANY TIPS to make the installation go as smooth as possible. I read the directions and it says that i am going to have to do some cutting on the downpipe and muffler area of the stock exhaust to get it all out.

Any tips would be appreciated!

BTW i got this MBRP system for an amazing price of 283.00 free shipping for anyone else who is looking to upgrade!

you can do it without a lift. The biggest pain is installing the new downpipe usually. Not sure on the 7.3, but at least on the 6.0 that is the biggest pain. jacking truck up so I had plenty of room beneath when running the downpipe up from bottom was the trick for me. Good luck

It's not that bad at all......on a lifted truck. If you have a 2wd I can see it being a little bit of a pain. But overall, a sawzall will come in handy. Leave the new system "loose" like the instructions say, make sure everything is where it should be and bolt her down. IIRC you will have to cut a section of the pipe if you have anything other than a CCLB.

Ok thanks for the help guys
i have a 4x4 off road so i can get under it pretty easily but i might jack it up a little bit in the front so i have more room to work with the downpipe.
im excited, i think im going to do the foil delete also tomorrow

hey man i got the lights off of ebay and they came with an adapter harness for each light also.
they are not OEM but i sealed them up myself with silicone around the edges even though they already sealed them up real good with how they made them.
they were only 184 bucks shipped! and they look exactly like OEM i love em
i dont have the 2007 front grille yet.....im going to finish my performance first before i finish my 2007/2008 conversion.

Lube the hangers so they slide out easy, spray the turbo clamp with some penetrating lube to loosen it, go crazy with the sawzall.

That is a good price, but you missed out on a free t-shirt!!!
