Downpipe Installed

I just got my downpipe installed and truck seems to have a little more get up and go but i have really drove it out. I was wondering if there was anythings that i need to check to make sure i done the job correct or not. And all so seems to be a little more engine noise in the cab, is this normal ? Thanks for all the help.

Re: Downpipe Installed

Mine used to rub under load, and in a hard left turn ( right roll ), had to get back in there and make some more room. I got a little more turbo noise, but the engine noise is back to stock inside the cab. I would look their.

Does your new down pipe had the pyro bung in it? check to see if it worked out if you don't have a gauge in there

Re: Downpipe Installed

I fixed my noise you guys where right is was vibration due to it rubbing the firewall. Thanks for the help.

Kurtfromct it is really dont that big of deal to get it in. Just take your time and a few cold ones. It only took me and a buddy about 1.5 hours to put mine in. Just be sure you have some one there that can help you that seem to help a lot.
