4” turbo back dilemma (my stupidity)

So long story short, out of my own stupidity I bought a e series 7.3 straight pipe exhaust from diamond eye not reading fully. I have an e99 f250 ccsb. Is there any hope of retro fitting or installing it on there before I hack away at the one I currently have on or is it just a lost cause? Thanks - and please move this post to appropriate section if it’s in the wrong place!

Correction on the post. Didn’t buy the exhaust directly from diamond eye. Bought it off of a guy selling it for a great deal and now I prolly know why 🤦‍♂️

I thought the turbo on the vans and early 99s were t hff e same, so you should be good there... there might be some difference in the down pipe height in relationship to the frame and firewall... it all depends on how much you want to use your welder, sawzall, grinder... myself, I'd find a way to make it work, but I live by my buddy Jason's philosophy, 'We got welders, torches, and grinders, it adds all fits if you want it to...'

Thanks for the advice whoever I don't have welding tools haha, my biggest concern is the DP size (length), and how it seats on the turbo because I'm aware the E series and F series turbos are different? The rest looks like it should go straight back to the axle with the hangers...?

The only thing I think I can add is at least some of the e series turbos are different on turbine outlet. My SD F series downpipe flange (with exhaust back pressure valve) was larger than the E series 1.15 housing turbo that I ran for a little while. The F series clamp wouldn't even come close to tightening up on it before being bottomed out.

Still try to contact the company and see if they will sell you the pipe. Doesn't hurt to ask. Just explain to them your situation. You'd be surprised what you can get by reaching out to a company like that.
