agreed... Sawzall will be the easiest way to get it off... also i like to cut it right where the downpipe bends going towards the back of the truck.. that way you have some leverage when trying to get the Dp off the turbo...

which exhaust kit are you going to be picking up?

Buy about three cans of brake cleaner and clean that new exhaust before install mine was nasty like it had cutting oil all over it and agreed with sawzall easiest way and don't forget about that little clip that holds the factory dp on the turbo

Have a buddy around to help you out. After you have removed the old one, have him or her (don't want to discriminate against the ladies who work on their own truck ) feed the down pipe up from the bottom, while you stand on a stool to get it aligned into position. Sometimes it will fight you tooth and nail and other times, it goes right in like butter!

Start from the front and go to the back, but DON'T tighten down the bolts, just get it in and aligned. Once everything is in, go back and start from the front and work your way to the back tightening up the clamps as you go. Oh and I used a block of wood (scrap 2x4) and put it between the downpipe and the frame to ensure it didn't get too close. After tightening up all the downpipe bolts, I removed the block of wood.

I spent almost a hour trying to get old down pipe out. The motor lift point was in the way. I took the trans dip stick tube off and the down pipe still did not have enough room. I then cut the metal bands holding on the metal insulation and removed it. The down tube slid out easily after that. If you can promise a buddy beer after the job is done that would make life easier. Took 5 hours by myself with much blood on the bottom of my truck...haha

Installing the new downpipe was the toughest for me when I installed the exhaust on my 6.0. I had to have help getting it to clamp on the back of the turbo. Other than that install was a breeze. Just make sure your exhaust isnt touching the truck anywhere or you will think all hell has broken loose under your truck. Anyways good luck with the install.
