F$@&%ing Ford

working on removing the doc/dpf pipe off and where downpipe's flange meets doc, it turns out someone welded those those bolts up. I managed to cut one of them off, now need to run to homedepot to get some more metal blades.

AM I the only one with bad luck, or has anyone's flange was welded as well?

The nuts are welded on. The bolt needs an extension and a swivel toreach them from the front.

Yes, but that is an obvious tell tell sign that you have taken it off.

No it is not. the nut stays in place. the bolt just threads out. Why would you need to cut the bolt off?

I was kidding guys. LOL I was taking a beer break and wanted to cause some drama. Everything is on, just installed the 250 tune and now im epoxying the dpf back pressure sensor. Broke it right where the rubber hose meets the sensor. if it doesnt work too well, I'll just order one online as it is 130 from a stealership.

PS: Those downpipe flange bolts were a pain in the a$$ to get out, especially the top one.

Cranked the truck up after the tune was installed and you can right there tell a difference in sound. much more meaner sounding!!

You will never want to go back to stock now. You will wait as long as you can if you have to take it back to the dealership for any work. I am jonesing to tune my 2010. Just want to get a few more miles on her and my free oil change.
