Question exhaust kit install question

Need some input on a exhaust kit. I have read that people say they installed their turbo back kit in about one and a half hours with no problems. Others have said they had to use big crowbars or even Porta Powers to "bend/move" the firewall to install the down pipe. So which is it? Hard or easy install?

I,m running a silverline 4 inch turbo back. The only part i had a hard time with was getting the stock downpipe out. Had to cut it apart. The aftermarket down pipe went in after i removed a bolt that holds the heat shield to the firewall. Took me an hour laying on my back in a two wheel drive truck.

Thanks D&B! Was hoping it would be a fairly easy install.

4" downpipe required some tapping with a deadblow to install, but it was easy to recognize what path it had to take to get into place

i took my stock downpipe out by removing the crossmember and tranny dipstick

its fairly easy, get a saw and cut the exhaust off of the truck, takes 20 min and that is done. the hardest part of the whole install is if you get the 4 inch down pipe(mbrp usually uses a 3.5" down pipe) i have a 4 inch down pipe that i put in the whole exhaust all by my self but it took about 2 hours to install but i took my time to get it right. the 4 inch down pipe took no tools to get it up there. it only takes time and patience to wiggle it up there. its really easy with two people. someone on the ground pushing up and someone up top wiggling it around to guide it up there and from then on its sliding pipes together and tightening clamps. cake work. let me know if ya have any questions
