Garrett Turbo and MBRP Exhaust install article on F-350...

Here is an article that one of our other editors, Josh Kaylor, wrote and shot on installing a Garrett turbo and MBRP exhaust system on an F-350. If someone is considering this upgrade the article will help show you what is involved.

I hope you like it!

Yup, just went on sale on 7.15.08... If you can't find it locally call the front desk and order it direct... The number is 423.664.5100, you can also buy a sub online or through the front desk and then each issue is cheaper.

Our mags are also carried at most major book stores and many AutoZone parts stores, many Wal-Marts and a lot of regular grocery stores... They do tend to sell out quickly though as we do not oversaturate the newsstand...

Well the reason I ask is because there were a few things in there that weren't accurate. I was hoping you could change it.

IE: Turbo has to be removed to replace donuts. That can be done with a 10 mm socket, 1/2 wrench, and a 12-16" extention with a universal on the end all from under the truck in about 15 minutes. Removing the turbo and getting the collector lined up again is far more difficult.

Besides that, it's a very nice step by step. Could have used that when I did my first turbo install

But they were replacing the turbo, so it was coming off anyway, this was not a case where they would have left the turbo on... or am I missunderstanding you?
