I installed mine its easy, just make sure u have the right lenght of exhaust left to reach the bed, buy a 90 degree elbow, and i put a peice of flexpipe on my 90 and fastened it down so it wouldnt stress the back of the turbo and had my stack welded to my plate and ran the exhaust right in the bottom of the stack, worked good and sounded good, theyre very easy to install if u do it right the first time

The first truck I put stacks on, I had Maxi Muffler do it. They charged 450 bucks. The next two trucks I put the stacks on myself. Only takes a couple of hours. I ended up selling them though and putting a full exhaust on. They are just too damn loud.

My kit costed $600 from summit racing. It comes with everything you need...flex pipe and 90 degree pipe as well. Your better off to do it yourself; its so easy. If I was going to do it over again, i would have cut the hole through the cross member (under the box) so the stacks are closer to the cab. I wasnt sure at first so i didnt end up doing it and now there is a pretty big gap between the cab and the stacks. I bought a "Back Rack" to fill in the gap, wich looks alright.

The Hardest part for a Turbo Back exhaust for me was the down pipe from the Turbo, you need like a 4' extension on your ratchet. I would also use a Hole saw to cut the bed. Alot cleaner hole and save the slug cause if your like me, and the stacks got old real quick you can weld the slug back into the bed.
