Default 4'' down pipe

How hard is it to put a 4'' down pipe on a 05 6.0.

Considering how cramped the engine compartment is, I'd say around a scale of 7??

my advice is to not even try to take the stock down pipe out in one piece. get the sawzall out and you can have the swap made in 1 hour its really not as bad as you would think it is.

forgot to add this part.... cut the pipe up as high as you can get it...

We have sold several of Magnaflows 4" exhaust systems with the 4" down pipe.

It will depend on your mechanical ability. Cutting the OEM out is the easiest way to get started. After that getting the turbo clamp on and tighted correctly on the new pipe is the second hardest part if you are by yourself.

when i installed my 4" down pipe it sucked big time, but that was due in part to the bends being off a bit.
