It is doable but not a 5 minute job...at least for me it wasn't. Just plan for the worst and you'll do find.

I ended up putting some plywood on my driveway and set the tranny down on it and slid it under the truck. Got the jack under there and have the tranny halfway on it I am going to try to get at it again in the morning
This is one of those times you probably wished you had a shop change it out for you. When it comes time for me to have my transmission replaced/rebuilt I am taking it to a shop to do. This transmission weighs approximately 300 lbs. More than I want to mess with under the truck.

Fyrestalker I didnt have too bad a time doing it with the trans in, however I did have the entire exhaust yanked out to switch it to an MBRP, so that did give some extra room. Also lucked out and had the bolts all let go without too much fighting on the old pipes. Imagine it will be cake with the trans out though.

It is about 10x harder to do with the transmission in place, and will take you 10x as long. I have done 2 separate trucks with the transmission in place, and debated on just dropping the trans about halfway through the job. It is 100% possible to do with the trans in, but the amount of extensions you need and the angles you have to be in are just crazy. If you take the trans out, just do it then.

Bob is correct...if you are pulling the transmission and not doing the EBPV delete you don't have to pull the turbo. I thought you said you were doing the EBPV delete...my bad. Get used to it...if money is no object...these truck have lots of mods you can do to them.

If you have never worked on the up-pipes before here is a great article on how to do it from guzzle's web site: Welcome to Pocket's International UP-Pipe Replacement Web Page and another from RiffRaff's website: http://www.riffraffdiesel.com/mm5/RE...structions.pdf. Plan on spending most of the day or more depending on problems you might run into. Clearance and getting to the nuts and bolts is the biggest problem you'll have. Have some extra long 3/8" extensions available...you'll need them. It helps to have an extra hand too. It is not easy but doable with the transmission in place. You are smart by going with the bellowed up-pipes...trust me you don't want to do this job again.

[email protected] Nope. The up-pipe kit and turbo o-rings will be all you need. If you do not remove the turbo, you will not even need the o-ring kit for that.

International Bellowed Up pipes?

It has been brought to my attention that since I will be R&R my tranny it would be a good time to do my up pipes. I am thinking I will be going with the International bellowed up pipes. From what I have read I will need to buy the Turbo re-install kit. Is there anything else I will need to get this done?
