Refer to manufacturer installation instructions and specs for complete information. Today on this 2009 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Series extended cab short bed we are going to be installing MagnaFlow Exhaust system part number MF16568. We are underneath the vehicle and the first thing I have done is lowered the spare tire out of the way to give us some extra working room. We also want to disconnect the battery. What that is going to do is once we get the system installed we can reconnect it and it will actually reset the computer system so it does not bring up any trouble codes from the new system. The first step before we can install our Exhaust system is to of course remove the factory installed Exhaust. There are four Exhaust hangers that we are going to need to remove the Exhaust off of towards the more rear side of the Exhaust system. 00:39 To the catalytic converter there is a clamp attaching the Exhaust to the converter. We are going to need to loosen that clamp as well. That clamp is going to be reused so we do not want to damage it so set it off to the side. Also to ease in the removal of the factory installed system we are going to need to cut the pipe just rear of the muffler right before the main bend right above the axle. Cut somewhere right in here, that will allow us to take that piece off and then remove the forward section all in one piece. With the cut made and the rear tail pipe removed I am going to go up to the forward side and remove my clamp next. With the clamp loosened up go back through and remove the main Exhaust system off its other three hangers. 01:44 Now it is time to start installing our new system. We are going to start with the inlet tube into the catalytic converter and again we are going to be reusing the clamp that we removed in the previous step. You will notice there is a bend in the inlet tube coming over the cross member. Make sure the bend is going up. We do not want to fully clamp it down just yet. We want to wait until we get all of the pieces in position and then we will come back through and tighten everything down. We are going to tighten it up to hold it into place. Next we are going to put the muffler in to position. We are going to merge the two pieces together using the three inch clamp and it is going to merge up with the factory hanger. Then you need to attach it to the two factory hangers. We are going to start installing back to the tips. This model only had single Exhaust on it but we are putting a dual Exhaust system on it. So we are going to finish out on the passenger side where the factory pipe was and then we will come back through and finish off the driver side. 02:52
MagnaFlow Exhaust Installation - 1996 Acura Integra - etrailer.com
http://www.etrailer.com/tv-Magnaflow-install-1996-acura-Integra.aspx Videos are provided as a guide only. Refer to manufacturer installation instructions and specs for complete information. Today on this 1996 Acura Integra we are going to install MagnaFlow Exhaust part number MF15653 from MagnaFlow Performance. First off we will give you a sound test of the original Exhaust on there. Then we can compare it to the new one once we have it installed. First we will show you what is going to get replaced in our Exhaust system. Basically this is what is called a Cat-back or from the catalytic converter on back to the tailpipe. This is our converter right here and at this flange point we are going to unbolt right here and from here on back is going to get removed from the vehicle. On the bolts themselves we sprayed down with some penetrate and let it sit for at least an hour or so. The nut on the top is going to be a different size nut also. Leave that alone for now. 00:50 If these break we do not really care because this is all getting replaced anyway. Get this apart. Next spray down the rubber hangers with some more lubricant and we will pry them off. We do not want to damage the rubber hangers because those are going to get reused. The same thing is going to happen again with the muffler. Now if these hangers are already damaged from normal wear and tear you probably want to just replace them and this is going to be the best time to do it now. Now we have got our Exhaust completely off. What we are going to do is take any leftover hangers that had stayed with the Exhaust and remove those and put them back into the factory locations. 01:35 We are going to start installing new parts working our way from front to rear. We are going to slide on a new part. We are going to reuse the original factory nuts. We are just going to start one and get it started and hold everything into place and then we will slide on the rubber hangers. We will run all of these bolts down evenly and then give them a final torque. Working with the next section is going to S curve. Install the clamp, slide it on, and slide this on to the resonator pipe that we just installed. This does not really have anything to support it but the other half so we are going to slide it on for now. The approximate location of the original. Install the muffler and tailpipe and slide that into place. We will hook these up to the rubber hangers by the bumper. Put the S pipe next to the tailpipe itself. There is a little gasket that will go on here. Slide it into position and run the bolts through. This is hardware that does come with the kit and install the flange nuts. 03:28 Position the pipes the way that we want it and make sure it is not rattling up against anything that we do not want it to. Then once we have it the way we want it we will snug down the connections. The last thing we will do is tighten down the band clamp and that requires a specific torque range that is provided in the instructions. With our Exhaust fully installed the only thing we need to do now is turn the engine on and see what we get for sound. At about 20 to 50 miles, you probably want to go back underneath the vehicle again and make sure all of the fasteners are still tight. That sounds pretty good. There you have it for part number MF15653 from MagnaFlow Performance Exhaust.
Reese 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch 16,000 lbs Review - etrailer.com
http://www.etrailer.com/tv-Reese-5th-Wheel-Assembly-RP30047.aspx Videos are provided as a guide only. Refer to manufacturer installation instructions and specs for complete information. Today we are going to assemble part number RP30047 from Reese. This is a 16K fifth wheel hitch. To start off, we are going to take the legs and assemble them on our rails here that are pre-existing on the truck. Then we will take our cross bar assembly that goes across, this will simply sit over the top, you can adjust it up and down as you need to match the height of your trailer. Then slide these bolts from the inside, out. :37 We will put the lock nuts on the outside here. At this point we will tighten down our bolts. Now that we have our legs and cross brace installed, you want to check if you can take the hitch in and out of the rails easily. If you can, that is a good sign and you can put the pins in and assemble the rest of the hitch. We will now install the pins and clips. 1:22 We are going to install our bumpers now. They are going to go on the front side of the hitch. The pin head screw goes through the center of the rubber bumper and a speed nut goes on the bottom. We will take the screw and push it through the bumper, take a screw driver and push it in, it in place, and take the speed nut and snug it up and you are good to go. Our center section that pivots will go in next. It will be held in place by this pin right here. It will get pushed in just like that, and it will have a clip on the other side to hold it in place. Lets go ahead and it in and tap the pin in with a rubber mallet. Then install our safety pin. Next we will go ahead and install our handle with a latch. Right here you want to put your cotter pin and then bend one half over and we should be good. The grip will be slid on the handle, and that will finish our assembly. 2:52 We will show you how the latch works for a king pin on the trailer. Take the handle and pull out, and move it to one side, usually the back, it will catch in the dent here, and lock the jaws open. Back your trailer into it and then pull on your handle here, pull a little bit, and it will lock back into place. Once you have your king pin secured, put the safety latch over the handle here and you could also use a padlock or safety pin to keep everything latched together. Once this is down, you cannot pull the handle out. The range of movement we will show next. It will rock from side to side and also from front to rear. With that, that will finish our assembly of part number RP30047 from Reese.
Magnaflow Exhaust Installation - 2005 Infiniti G35 - etrailer.com
http://www.etrailer.com/tv-install-magnaflow-Exhaust-2005-infinti-g35-coupe.aspx Videos are provided as a guide only. Refer to manufacturer installation instructions and specs for complete information. Today we are going to be installing Magnaflow Performance Exhaust system part number 16641on a 2005 Infiniti G35 Coupe. Before we get started we want to go ahead and disconnect the negative terminal off the battery. The battery is located behind this panel here on the upper left-hand side of the engine compartment. This going to allow the computer to reset so when we get the new Exhaust system on it will reconfigure itself to the new Exhaust. And we will go underneath the vehicle and start disconnecting the old Exhaust. This is a Cat Black system so we will be moving the Exhaust tips all the way up to the disconnect point behind the catalytic converter. So we need to unbolt the flange here from these two bolts and we are also going to need to remove the Exhaust off all its hangers as well. The rubber hangers we are going to be using are located right here, right here, right here, and right here. Using a spray lubricant on the rubber hangers will make the removal of those a lot easier. You are going to want to save the rubber hangers because we will be reusing those for the re-installation. And then also here just forward of the main Exhaust you want to disconnect the ground wire off of the post here. We can go ahead and start disassembling it. I defiantly recommend spraying down all the bolts first with a lubricant like a WD40 because these will likely be rusted. This will help ease the removal of the nuts. Next we are going to go to the flange just rear of the Exhaust and go ahead and remove the ground strap. Okay now we will remove the Exhaust from all of the hangers. With all the rubber hangers removed you can go ahead and take the Exhaust system out. The first piece we are going to go ahead and put in place is the one nearest the catalytic converter. Just going to be bolted to the flange, you want to make sure you have the gasket in place here. We do want to make sure the slight bend here goes toward the driver side. We want to leave everything fairly loose for the time being until we get it all installed and then we can tighten it all down. Okay next we are going to put the second inlet piece in. You want the side with the rubber hanger to be facing the drivers side, it is going to attach right here. Then we are going to take one of the clamps that are provided with the installation kit and slide it over the inlet tube here over the end with the notches cut out of it. Go ahead and take that, and slide it over, slide it all the way in. All right go ahead and attach it to the rubber hanger here. Then we slide the clamp over and again we are just going to loosely install it for the time being. What I am going to do is manipulate it in and out of the inlet tube until that rubber hanger is facing straight up and down. Before I put the muffler on I am actually going to pre-install the clamp over this inlet tube because once the muffler is in place it is going to be tough to manipulate around there. Then we are going to go ahead and install the muffler itself. In preparation I went ahead and in the area where the muffler goes I went ahead and put all of the the rubber hangers back on the vehicle itself. Now that I have the muffler adjusted and properly into place I can go ahead and install our other clamp. I am going to go ahead and install with the threads on the upper side on each of them. And with that loosely installed I can go ahead and start tightening everything down. When tightening down you want to start with the forward most bolts and work your way rearward. Last thing you want to do is go ahead and re-secure our grounding strap. To do that we are just going to be using the protruding threads from our clamp here at the rear most attaching point. Just slide that over and re-install it with the lock nut that is provided with the installation kit. With the grounding strap on again you just want to make sure all of our hangers are secure and our installation will be complete. This Exhaust system was designed to make the car sound louder. Here is how it sounded before. And here is how it sounds now. And that will conclude the installation of part number 16641 on a 2005 Infiniti G35 Coupe.
