Default Need Some Help

Hey yall, well I have my 4inch exhaust on its way. Should be at my house on the 11th. I was wondering if anyone would like to come over this weekend on Saturday evening around 6pm to give me a hand putting it on my truck. I have to remove the stock exhaust and install the new 4 inch straight pipe. This is on my 2002 F-250 Powerstroke.

I bet more people would be interested if you included the state, or even the city of your residence.

No headpipe, I am replacing everything from the Turbo Back. I got a 4inch straight pipe exhaust kit for my 2002 Ford Powerstroke Diesel. I am replacing the whole exhaust system including the down tube that comes off the turbo.

Converter, Ok let me tell you again DIESEL ENGINE. The truck never had a converter in the first place. No Emissions on the truck never was never will be. I am starting to think I am glad I know what I am doing. I just need an extra pair of hands and an extra body to pass beer from the fridge.

My truck did not have a cat on it from the factory.

Your info is incorrect. How ever 2003 1/2 Ford Powerstroke Diesels do have cats. That would be the 6.0L. I do not know when Chevy and Dodge started putting cats on there diesels. I know it is around the same time frame.

The only thing my truck came with was a muffler and that has been off for about 2 years. Now I am upgrading from the stock exhaust size of 3.5inches to 4inch straight pipe.

This is 100% legal.

The exhaust system you show is for trucks that are in cali or states that have emmission requirements on diesels. Fortanuately Michigan does not have those requirements there for no Cat is required.

Also that exhaust system is not very popular by diesel enthuasists. Being he even lists the exhaust for a 6.2L with a single cat. To my knowledge the trucks that had the 6.2L never had a cat either. Catalytic converters were not required on Diesels by Federal Law until 2004. How ever when Ford went to the 6.0L halfway into the 2003 model year. They equiped the trucks with cats.

Agreed I had an 02 F250 and now a 02 Ex I was just pointing out that most Diesels have cats.

Good luck with your swap. My buddy that I sold my F250 to just did that and a chip and the thing is a rocket now.

I don't know if they will bring it back. I would think they would in time. Many states do it or did it and brought it back. Biggest issue is money for administration of the program and we know this state has none of that.

It's a 10k fine for me to take a cat off. I would chance it on my own vehicle but not on someone else's.

No muddypaws I am not saying you don't know what your doing. Nor am I saying that no one else does not know what they are doing.

Just that I know for fact that if you bought a 99-02 Ford Powerstroke 7.3L Truck in Michigan you will not find a cat on it unless it is four legged and fury.

But if you bought the same truck in Cali it will have a cat on it. All depends on where the truck orginated from. As some states have laws that require them to have cats and other states do not.

Although now as of 2004 all diesels are emission regulated by the Federal Government and now all new diesel trucks have cats on them from the factory.

Yes there is a part number for them. But every diesel truck I have worked on or came accross in the state of michigan does not have one. They came from the factory with out one.

The exhaust system is sitting at my house right now. I am installing it at my house on saturday I just need some extra hands doing this.

Actually, I'm pretty sure every single diesel truck in michigan has a cat on it, including yours.

And if you cut yours off, another will regrow. Like a lizards tail.

I am going to inform you that you are wrong. My cat was never cut off. It was never there from the factory to be removed in the first place.

No way. It was there, and you cut it off. You used a torch and a flat head screwdriver. I was there
