What's up guys, I just got my catted downpipe in today from CVF and I'm stoked to get it on and light up the tires!
I purchased it through 5 star since they update my tunes for free if I buy the parts through their website. I've heard great things about CVF and this thing is 304 stainless!

Update:
Got the downpipe on this morning before and I'm uploading the tune!
The install was honestly a pain in the butt for most of it. The three nuts I actually loosened up first and without a ratcheting wrench man it was tiring, and very tight of a space! Good thing I can stand on my bumper.

The most annoying part is have to say is disconnecting the O2 sensors, for me at least. That was a real PIA.
The downpipe comes with a sheet of paper explaining how to turn on the truck and hold some revs to break in the new cat. I'll break it in and post about it after a while!

Are you only running the downpipe with stock exhaust? I really like the tone of that. Sounds good!
Oh sorry, I'm running an MBRP exhaust muffler back with the dual exit. Still have the stock flex pipe and midpipe so I used the 2.5 adapter from the downpipe to the flex pipe.

I swear, I find something new daily on here that I need to justify to the wife why I need to buy it.

thanks brother, definitely looking forward to the driving one as well, ordered mine last week so waiting for it to arrive
Ok so this one I didn't floor it just gave it some of the beans and it still spun the tires around 50 mph then stopped accelerating

This one just gave it a little gas

Ok this one was floored after the turn with traction control on or it would have gotten sideways, tires still spin around 50 mph

Hey what's up man. I used a regular 15mm wrench pointing away from the engine to break it loose, then I have a mini 15mm ratcheting wrench and just kept ratcheting. It was a SOB.

Actually I think I couldn't use the mini wrench on this nut it was too tight of a space the only way I had space to work was with the regular size 15mm wrench. I pulled up hard on it to break it loose, then you should be able to go from like 9 to 11 o'clock when staring straight at the truck when standing in front of it. I didn't have a ratcheting wrench for loosening it but I bought one to tighten it. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND buying a ratcheting 15mm wrench for this it will save you time and your back from leaning over the engine for so long I had a regular wrench to loosen it and would have to take off the wrench and put it back on the nut each time I turned it like 60°.
