Always something...

Well, I thought I had everything, but I did not,

Got the EFI live tuner and 4" exhaust but in looking over exhaust parts I don't have the front pipe to connect to the new downpipe, also no 3" V clamp, it's always something.

I sure hope between the Magnaflow muffler, which looks like nothing but a 3" reduction with perforated holes and FTE resonator which has a straight thru pipe in the center with a swirl type flow pattern around the perimeter works, I have straight 4" on my pick-up which is annoying.

The next thing is power windows, now I heard the window regulators are the same so I believe I just have to add a motor and switches? does anyone know about this?
I have an old 2003 conversion van that is now used by my employees, I can always move interior door panels and guts from one to another but I'm scouting junkyards so I don't have to go that route, next weekend when the mechanic is here I'll have him look at both doors and make a final conclusion.
I have four dogs and they have me trained to open their window

Did they ship the correct exhaust ? The FTE resonator/muffler all in one is all you need for a quiet drone free exhaust. You can reuse your v-clamps if they are not broken.

you heard wrong...while the regulators are the same you'll need "all" the wiring to support it...and its a lot.
Adding power window or power locks (factory style) is no joke on these things, you'll probably have to pull the seats and carpet up to run the power wires from the RAP/Window relay in the body fuse box to each of the door interface connectors then install the entire door wiring harness with the motor and switches. Hopefully you have the wire from the BCM to the body fuse box to power the RAP/window relay (that's not a for sure).

sounds like they shipped the "cat back system" ...the specific part number that was ordered will tell the tale..

none of the systems send a new v-band clamp for the down pipe, they all expect you to reuse your original..

The exhaust is from the link you posted in your build, for the $150. I paid no worry, plus it came with muffler, ordered a front pipe for $65. the confusing thing is when I unraped the two rear sections they are black not SS like the rest? nice built in exhaust tip though I'm happy.
Not happy about the wiring you described, so if I want to operate both windows from the driver's side I have to change all that, what if they work individually, just supply power? power door locks are not a concern just windows, I live in south Florida, I use the windows a lot.

The link from my post was for a 17994 system, on ebay that one is no longer available and it sends you to the 17035 that you got. Looks like the pictures and description on the ebay listing match what you got.

Do you just have manual crank windows now?
If you are going to tackle this you need to go to AllDataDIY.com and get a subscription (less than $20) so that you have access to all the electrical drwgs for your specific year/model van. There was a lot of changes in the 2006 to 2010 years.

I put a 4" from the downpipe back with just the FTE resonator. It is barely louder than stock till you really get on it.
