you’ve saved all your pennies and you now
own your dream vehicle, a Diesel Powered
Tow Monster. The thought of the first trip
over the mountain pushing all the limits
of the new motor makes your heart race.
it will only take a few trips through those
mountains until you realize that the truck
could use a few more ponies.
today’s Diesel trucks you can add as much
as 300 horsepower by adding an exhaust,
intake and power chip. It is amazing how
easy these applications change the way your
diesel truck will perform. This month we
are going to cover how easy it is to install
an all stainless steel MBRP Cool Dual exhaust.
MBRP is the best of the best. They are one
of the few companies that offer a true 4”
Turbo Back Dual Exhaust System that bolts
up with the factory hardware. (Can it
be true a Bolt on Performance Exhaust?
It sounds too good to be True.) This
is exactly what we thought.
we sure were wrong!! Our friends, over
at Shidler’s Auto Center in Indianapolis,
IN, let us borrow their lift and went on
stand by for any exhaust questions or concerns
that we had. Schidler’s is the top custom
exhaust specialist in Indianapolis,
so we knew if any problems arose they would
come to our rescue.
MBRP’s excellence, by the time that Pork
(the man at Schidler’s) finished with his
breakfast biscuit the MBRP exhaust was nearly
the install on our company Tow Pig in June
2005, we’ve driven over 20,000 miles and
the only problem we’ve experienced has been
a lot more lead footing.
points to MBRP Exhaust:
entire exhaust is stainless steel. This
is a big plus for any state that gets
snow and has rust problems.
is right this exhaust will never rust, it
is 100% pure polished Stainless Steel)

on call for any problems that we may
have come across. They never even had
to get their hands dirty.

found it much easier to loose fit all
the pieces. This way we knew what pipe
was next to go.
sure to spray some lubricant on the
bolt that connects the down pipe and
the turbo housing. This is a very delicate
bolt, it will break under stress.
suggest to start the
install at the down pipe and work
your way back.
Down Pipe install was the most difficult
part of the install. You will need two
people to get it right. One
person steadily adjusting the pipe from
the bottom and one person on top of
the motor fitting the pipe flange to
the down pipe install you just attach the
next piece in line. The C clamp hooks install
right into the factory hangers so it is
easy to hang and install.
trucks are not stock with dual exhaust so
you will need to add a hanger on the Driver
side of the truck. The MBRP exhaust supplies
you with all the necessary hardware to tackle
this task easily. No drilling needed. The
hanger bolts right into place of a factory
exhaust easily clears the spare tire
and shocks. Every bend is the perfect
angle to fit your vehicle.
you get the exhaust all tightened up.
You can install the 5” Stanless Exhaust
Tips. These look great hanging out both
sides of the dually fenders.
conclusion: This exhaust is by far the easiest
and best looking exhaust on the market today.
