MBRP 4" turbo back exhaust

I just got a mbrp turbo back exhaust and i was told you have to remove the turbo to install it and that it was a 3 hour job, i was wondering if anyone out there can shed some light on how to install the exhaust and about how long it would take.

thank fella's

you dont need to remove the turbo, just the clamp that keeps the downpipe on the turbo. and you need to either remove the transmission cross member(and support it with a jack or something) or cut the downpipe. the easiest is to just cut the factory downpipe. without crossmember removal the factory downpipe wont come out unless you cut it, which is easier and probably safer. and you either need to jack the rear up without using the axle and remove the passenger side shock to pull the catback section out, or just cut the exhaust behind the muffler. its quicker to just cut the downpipe and tailpipe. if you soak the exhaust hangers with wd40 or PB Blaster it'll make it easier to remove from the hangers, otherwise you'll be cursing it way more than needed. finally, enjoy.

Yes just cut your exhaust with a sawzall. Start at the back and cut the hanger right behind the muffler. Then pull the exhaust pipe out starting with the tell pipe and work your way to wards the front of the truck. Once you get to the cat, do not unhook the last exhaust hanger before the up pipe. And do not unhook the pipe from the turbo. Then cut your down pipe right in front of your cross member. You do this so you have support on the pipe in front and behind the cut you make.
Oohh and use 2 pry bars back to back to remove the exhaust from the hangers after you lube them.

I hope this helps

later jmd

For what its worth, I got mine off only cutting right infront of the crossmember, I did not have to do any cutting in the rear and I did not have to remove any shocks. Stock height F250, no lift.

I also suggest putting everything on loose, then tighten from front to back making sure everything is aligned. Once its all tits, I would go went them, as the clamps used with the MBRP leave a lot to be desired....

good luck!!

Everything that was said above. Just cut the SOB out. Way easier. Also, plan to slip under neath a time or two after you get it on to make a few tweaks, I had a problem of it rubbing on the frame near the tranny but once I got that twisted and turned I haven't had a problem since.
