Which tuner do you have? Spartan and h&s don't require the bungs.

With or without bungs will depend on which tuner you get. Or get bungs and if you don't need em just plug em. If you change your mind down the road, that way you'll have them. When I went to remove my factory exhaust, I couldn't get the joints apart, so I just cut it with a sawsall. Be sure to lube up the rubber mounts with WD40 or similar will make them much easier to get out.

I haven't swapped my down pipe yet so I can't say how hard it is. I know there are some good threads on here about it though, just do a search.

I would get the one with no bungs. For the down pipe you have to cut out he stock one as it won't come out in one piece. The new downpipes come in 2 pieces. Most guys say its easy to get out by yourself. Just undo it, let it come down as low as possible and then cut it up as high as you can get. Just takes a little time I guess but from the posts doesn't seem to bad.

Search revealed no write ups on install... but lots of happy posts about there new exhaust lol
Installation is actually very straight forward, not much to write about. Unbolt the old, bolt in the new. The down pipe can be a little tricky though due to the tight space. You will cut out the stock down pipe and the new one will bolt in, it is 2 pieces.

Thanks, yeah the down pipe was my biggest worry really... Turned out i accidentally ordered a down pipe back kit from you guys at PTP (BTW Excellent price and super fast shipping! Thanks!) and I didnt have the patients to wait on returning it lol so I got it all put on in about 2 hours. I am super happy with it, but I will always wonder now about that down pipe lol.

Don't know if you have emmissions there or not but you can always order a down pipe with a flange and that way if you do have to put the stock exhaust back in, it will bolt right back in. I love the way my 5" exhaust sounds now just need to decide on a tip, I'm thinking a 6" but don't quite understand the difference between rolled and dual walled.

The sound...is nice! A little bit of V8 deep rumble in the cab while xlr8ing, But with the windows down it sounds like a jet. You can def hear the turbo now, still not as much whine as a 6oh or 7.3 but its nice. Maybe I can do a youtube vid tomorrow and post the link.

Install is very easy. I did mine in my driveway in about 30 minutes by myself. Spray all the bolts and dpf sensors with some PB blaster the night before. I unhooked the sensors first, then the dpf from the cat, then unhooked all the hangers, then unbolted the cat from the downpipe. Hardest part was pulling out the longer section alone.





The sound is awesome. It's still pretty quiet in the cab, even when towing one of my tandem duals.

It is actually easier to leave the DPF/Cat together and pull them out in one piece. The tail section will slide out easier that way as well.
