Re: Cat delete

aaaand ... just remember to keep the hanger & hardware with the CAT. best i remember it's 10mms, 15mms, and 17mm sockets for the most part. that and a mallet to help slide the test pipe in!
edit: i used a lot of penetrating oil to help get it in

oh another note, when you get it all snug, be sure the downpipe didn't move too much, because if it starts vibrating against the fraimrail or something, it''l freak you out the first time lol!

and if it moves a bit, no biggie, just loosen the clamps on both sides of the downpipe, readjust, and retighten.

Egr delete, studs (if it isn't already), oil cooler upgrade, coolant filter, tuner, and blue spring mod are all on the way when I can do them to the truck

Re: Cat delete

Thank you for the info on the install!! I appreciate it, is the pipe good quality? And how difficult was your stock cat to remove? (I do have access to torches, all types of tools etc) and I'd say yes the rattle would probably make someone a little nervous until they found out what it was😂

Re: Cat delete

i had someone helping me both times i did it, and it was maybe 30 or more minutes off (letting rusty bolts soak with pb blaster) and 30 ish minutes back in. one of us holding the part and the other pulling/pushing/stabilizing the rest of the exhaust made it pretty easy. just take your time getting the new pipe in and don't beat on it too hard lol! just use a rubber mallet or something

Re: Cat delete

nope! no codes! there is no downstream sensor (like an 02 sensor) at all! i heard it put one time like this: "6.0 kitties go to the vet all the time with no codes" lol

Re: Cat delete

I will also have an extra set of hands! I've just happened to never have luck getting any type of exhaust apart unless I use heat😂

Re: Cat delete

you might need heat for the bolts, but we were lucky. just a wire brush an oil did the trick :)
