5" Diamond Eye install advice?

Well it showed up today, going to be putting it on in the next frew days with a buddy. All I have found is that I need to cut the stock DP in front of the cross member to get it out. And also something about a stud on the fire wall needs cut to get the 4" DP in? Where is that located? Any other tips or tricks? Thanks.

the stud is right on the firewall where the DP goes, just bash it with a hammer a couple times. To make the muffler back removal easy just cut before and after it. and if you can't get the bolts holding the cat to the dp, just cut them darn things. other than that it is a pretty straight forward install, put the hangers up first then do the pipes. I just did mine this past weekend. easy once you get the old system out, which wasn't easy for me, i didn't have long enough blades for the reciprocating saw so i had to hand saw them.

I'm already cat and muffler deleted anyways. The removal shouldn't be too hard. Getting the new DP up un there is what scares me.

You should have no problem putting that baby in


The harder part is taking the old pipe out... which isn't that hard either

Nope, not hard, if you have the right tools.
