your wasting money buying a 5" exhaust. the turbo doesn't produce enough pressure to need it. 4" will save you money and do everything you need with bells on. If you want it, a 5" tip is all you need.


micky

also I don't think 5" will on the DP

Check with the vendors on here such as farmboys.

5" really isn't needed but it sure sounds good. You'll get a 4" down pipe and then a full 5" from there back.

Yep that's what I've got. I had small fitment issues because of my gooseneck hitch and the underbed rails. You'll have to massage a couple of spots so you don't have an annoying rattle.

I wish I knew your friend when I got mine. I paid close to twice as much.

What do you mean when you say "Bad fitment issues"

thanks
Down pipe angle wrong, had to beat a dent in it and still hits on the head.

Hangers dont line up, had to redo the one at the end to get it to hang right.

It wasnt the big pipe that caused the problem but the design.

It took about 4-5 hours to install with help for the downpipe.

Love the look, power, and sound but wouldnt reccomend magnaflow to anyone.

Thats strange, usually Magnaflow kits nearly install themselves they go in so easy.
I would rather do the hpop again instead of the exhaust.
