Ok Guys so I got the downpipe in my old girl and man was that a B**CH. It took me six hours just to cut the old one out and put the new one in but it was worth the time.

Grats....puttin a downpipe on the OBS trucks is probably one of the more aggravating/time consuming modifications you'll undertake

Oh it's definitely worthy of a cussin'.... You can tell they built the motor around the truck and not vice versa :(

oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh ya the turbo is a HELL of alot louder. i still remember, when i had the factory exhaust i really couldnt hear a single sound from the turbo. but as soon as i got the full exhaust on it was sooooo sick! mainly the only thing that makes the turbo so much louder in the obs, is bc of the TOTAL P.O.S. dp. its about an inch wide and snakes down with alot of curves. as opposed to a 3'' or 3.5'' dp that a full tube all the way down and pretty much straight. taylor if i were you id straight pipe your truck, the absolute best $350 ive EVER spent!

It was definately worth the work and the PITA the turbo also seems to spool a whole lot better
