Maybe mine didnt interfear with my kit. I guess, I will have to go look under my truck again and see if I can tell what you are referring to. Sorry I cant be of more help. I was going to say if it was the bracing for the bed to just drill right through it but if it is the frame then you are probably going to have to either go in front of or behind it if you can.

Yea the more I think about it, I think I just notched mine out a little to let the 90* elbow fit.

Yea man I like the single stack. It makes the most sense IMO since we have a single outlet coming from the turbo. Now if we had two turbo outlets then absolutely I would say do dual stacks. Not to mention you can still run some stuff all the way forward in the bed where you really cant with duals. JMOs.

Ok so I went back out and looked under the truck and my elbow doesnt interfere at all with the cross member of the frame. It appears that the elbow goes behind it about an inch or so. IMO I would see where/how much it would contact with that cross member and as long as you arent cutting out more than half the width of it, then you should be ok. I guess I would have to see how much contact it was making to give you a better opinion. Hope this helps.

I think it depends on what kind of mount you use to hold the stack
