New to me 2000 ex

So I finally found one I picked up a 2000 excursion with 110ish. It's want I had been looking for.

We all know the good 7.3 powers toke bla bla bla

Now for the bad cuse those r the only things that matter really when buying a use truck

Paint is horrific ,every panel needs to worked over some more then others ,the roof is the worst but it all is fixable and it helps that auto body is my line of work

The inside is not the worst but the carpet needs to be replaced (kids) and it is 13 years old

But here we go alet the build begin

When I bought my 4" MBRP tb from XDP they told me that they are the same exept for where it comes over the rear axle. Due to the Excursions larger fuel tank the pipe is bent more than that of a super duty. They called MBRP while I was there to confirm it as well. Now am I saying a super dutys flat out wont work, no, but buying an Excursion specific exhaust will work a lot better, and won't require any modifications.
