just installed silverline dual exhaust

Hey there. Just posting this thread for those of you out there that are considering a silverline dual system. mine is a Turbo back.
Job 1. putting it on. The installation went fairly easy. It took about 45 mins to put it on (took the stock off last night). A few tips. Start with the turbo, and work your way back. When putting on the section with the muffler and Y-pipe, make sure the way is perpendicular to the ground, this will be VERY important later. the new exhaust re uses the stock hanger locations, and rubber doodles, so make sure when you take your system off, do not throw them away. When putting on the tail pipe sections, be sure that the pipes clear the shocks and on the drivers side, the brake lines. I zip tied my brake lines up just to give them a bit of extra clearance. The longest part of the whole install was getting the tips even on both side, just leave the clamps loose at the Y-pipe until you are happy how both pipes are running out the back, then tighten them. your done.

Driving it. The sound is pretty nice. The most noticable differance is the turbo whistle. Sounds like a jet now. There is a slight grumble you can hear while driving it. but not enough to annoy you.

I will post pics when i get home to the camera tonight.
thanks

also here are the instructions i wrote for removing the exhaust to install the silverline. i hope this helps as well!!

allright just did it about 1 hour ago. took me about 1.5 hours to get it out by myself, with no lift. a few tips. Go ahead and drop the spare tire out before you start. makes it much easier. Also i took the right rear shock out instead of just the top bolt. not having a lift, the shock was in my way. Then i jacked up the trailer hitch as high as i could and put jack stands under the frame. next spray all the rubber hangers with WD-40 or similar. Now eat a sandwich while the lube works its magic. Next undo the two 15mm bolts on the slip joint after the cat, (06 model) Now take a pair of large channel lock pliers and squeze the rubber exhaust hangers off. they come off pretty easy. Now the rear section (catback) of the exhaust should be loose. When you take off the rubber hangers be careful as the stock exhaust is VERY heavy. slide it towards the rear of the truck rotating it clockwise (if your facing forward) and snake it out the back. It comes out with ease. no cutting. just muscle. took about 5 mins to wiggle it out the back, just had to get the right rotation...
Tip.. mine was hung up for a moment and i couldnt see what had it, it was the clamp for the slip joint, i just needed to loosen it more and take it off completly.

Now for the cat section. First Remove the two 13mm bolts from the transmisson that are holding the bracket right in front of the cat. Now take a 7/16 Deep well socket and a 12 inch extension and from the front right fender well loosen the clamp connected the pipes. Loosen this almost all the way up. Now cat section will drop down from this clamp. Back under the truck, wiggle the exhaust towards the back a few inches and slide the bracket forward and off the hanger on the exhaust (the transmission bracket you took off a few minutes ago)
Once this is off slide the section towards the front and out of the Truck.

Thats it, your done. Well not really, you have to put something back on..... but you get the point. hope this helps.

Great project information and photos! I've got a quick question though. Do you have a gooseneck hitch installed in your truck? If you do, did you have any problem installing this dual system around the hitch?

I'm thinking about getting the same system, but I read that some trucks with gooseneck hitches won't accept dual systems due to interference with the hitch. I've got an '04 LLY Std. Cab with a B&W Turnover Ball Hitch. Thanks man!

I am confused about the dual setups. I see your spare tire so my question is how does the left side exhaust route? I have looked under my truck thinking about adding the left side for duals but there doesn't appear to be enough room for $hit! Do you or anyone have any pics of the left side routing over the axle, between the shock and the spare tire? It looks tight to me without touching anything.

I am wanting to get a dual system and have the same question also about any rubbing issues with the spare tire?
