Exhaust

Ordered my 5" turbo back today. Waiting for shipping to see when it is getting here. Coming from ID so hopefully won't take too long. Now who can I con into helping me install it All the guides I find say you really need a sawzall to cut off the old one and I don't have anything closer to that than a hunting knife.

Finally Here

Finally came in yesterday. Unpacked it last night and maybe it is just me but 5" is freakin huge. When you think 5" it doesn't seem that large but it sure is. It dwarfs that poor excuse of a stock exhaust Now to get it painted.

Glad it came in man, let us know how the install goes and post some pics while you are at it. I am curious as to how much of a pain in the azz it is to get around the axle and spare, being a 5" pipe.

I'm interested in the downpipe. My 4 inch was a PIA to install. There should be about two inches extra between the rear shock and the spare tire.

So the painting has not turned out as well as I had hoped, but at this point I just want to get it on and I'll see what else might work for it. Used the VHT high temp exhaust paint. Plan is to put it on tomorrow with Chris's help.

Also side note, got some of the Motorcraft Cetane. Seems like maybe it quieted it down a bit. Just put it in prior to fill up tomorrow so will see if it makes any diff on this tank of fuel.
