Bucket will work best. But that will get old after a while.

Re: water in the stack..

Drill a hole at the lowest point.
Let's see if I can explain the other option. It's kind of like a bell. I would do it at an elbow towards the rear of the cab. Use a 5" elbow to y pipe. from the turbo back use 4" and slide it in the center of the 5" elbow. The idea is from Charles. Do a search on it if you don't understand.

Not being mean, I just know the explanation is vague.

Re: water in the stack..

tiny hole in the bottom or your elbow or 90 works good. small enough where you wont leak much exhaust
