Refer to manufacturer installation instructions and specs for complete information. Today on this 1991 Chevrolet S-10 we are going to be installing part number MF10784 and part number MF11226. This is going to be a little different from normal applications because we are actually doing a little bit of custom work. We are actually going to be removing the entire Exhaust and replacing it with a MagnaFlow Exhaust cut out and a MagnaFlow wide open muffler. The first steps we are going to show you is how to remove the complete Exhaust and what we are going to have to do is remove it from the hangers and I will show you those locations right now. Before we remove everything we want to put a strap to hold up your Exhaust so it does not fall when you are removing the bolts and mounts. 00:38 The first location we are actually going to remove is going to be the rear most bracket here. That is going to be these two bolts right here. We went ahead and sprayed them down with some lubricant to help get the bolts off since this is an older truck. The second Exhaust mount that we are going to be removing is going to be the one at the back of the muffler which is going to be located here. It is also going to be two bolts holding it into the frame. After we remove the Exhaust mounts your Exhaust will be free hanging on that strap and then we are going to be removing these two bolts right here which will remove the Exhaust from here back and then we will start applying our applications. 01:15 We are going to get started on removing the Exhaust brackets. I just removed one, the other one was kind of rusted on there but we can actually just slide it back over. Then when we remove the Exhaust this will just slide off so we do not need to take out this other bolt. So now we are going to remove the Exhaust system. As you can see we are going to actually take the Sawzall off and cut it off right here. Since this is the factory Exhaust it is all rusted up and there is no way we are going to be able to slide it off so we are just going to cut right at the edge where the old Exhaust is going to be removed. As you can see we went ahead and put a second bearing strap so that when we finish cutting our Exhaust over here that it will not fall. 01:57 As you can see we have it off now so we are just going to maneuver it around our rear end and slide it up over the top of it. It would probably be best to have a second set of hands to help you as well in maneuvering. On this Exhaust cut out here they are provided with two band clamps but since we widened our diameter here they do not fit over the pipe any more so we went ahead and bought some after market pipe brackets. As you can see it just slides over like that and you will be provided those in your kit. On this application we are using these. We will put this on first and we will show you how to do that. Just take the Exhaust cut out and just slide it over our existing pipe and then we are going to take our bracket and slide it up over it and then we can tighten it down on to our muffler to make it a good seal tight. 02:50 Now we are going to put our MagnaFlow Exhaust in to place. You can put it whichever way you want that will best fit your needs. That is how you install this muffler and Exhaust cut out here. The way we did it, we are actually going to need to make an Exhaust hanger for it and you can probably just take your vehicle to any muffler shop and they can get one fabricated for you. It should not cost you that much. Now that we have it all installed we are going to show you a little bit of what it sounds like with the Exhaust. Then we are going to remove the Exhaust cut out and let you hear the sound of that as well. That concludes the installation for part numbers MF10784 and part number MF11226.
MagnaFlow Exhaust System Installation - 2009 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Series - etrailer.com
http://www.etrailer.com/tv-install-magnaflow-Exhaust-2009-chevy-silverado-MF16568.aspx Videos are provided as a guide only. 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 Exhuast Installation - 2006 Ford F150 - etrailer.com
http://www.etrailer.com/tv-install-Exhaust-system-Ford-F150.aspx Videos are provided as a guide only. Refer to manufacturer installation instructions and specs for complete information. Today we are going to install part number 16612 from Magnaflow performance Exhaust. This is a catalytic converter on back of the Exhaust system placement for the stock Exhaust. Our first step is to go ahead and look over into the original Exhaust system. Make sure you can get the bolts loosened to make the connections up front. Then you will want to get yourself an idea on how to take off the Exhaust. What you want to do is see how the rods go into the hangers here. It looks like the all point ends on all of them are towards the front. So we want to take them off and shove them towards the axle. And since the rest of this pipe is going out back, it might be a good idea to cut this in half. So you can take this pipe off first and push it backwards. Then have room to pull the Exhaust muffler here backwards off the extension pipe coming off of the catalytic converter. That way we can take pieces off a lot easier then with just wrestling with one hole piece. It is a good idea to go ahead and spray down anything rusted so that we can get it apart a little easier. We will let it set there for a few minutes and then we will go ahead and break it loose. All you have to do is basically loosen this clamp up and then take a screw driver or something and kind of pull it apart a little bit to give it some extra wiggle room to pull out the old Exhaust. Next we are going to go ahead and make the cut right here so we can separate the 2 halves. Next we can go ahead and remove this tail pipe here. It would be a good idea to spray down the hanger here to help ease pulling it out. We will do the same thing for the muffler here. Spray down the hangers. And then, we will have to wrestle it off, going towards the axle. You might have to use some prying against the frame or a body component to get some pressure going that way because it is a tight fit. Next what we will do is go ahead and unbolt the rubber isolators from the frame to give us a little more wiggle room to get the Exhaust off. Next we can go ahead and install the original hangers back into place. Alright, now we can start installing the new Exhaust. You start on the original pipe and run the first section into the Exhaust hanger and just leave it loose for now and we will piece everything together. We will slide on the next portion and again we are leaving everything loose. We are just piecing it together for now. Sometimes you run yourself into a situation where it might be easier to take off the hanger off the vehicle, put it on the Exhaust, and then reattach it by that by re bolting it to the frame. Now go ahead and install the fourth piece. Once you have all the pieces in place, now you want to take some time out to move them around to make sure we are going in as much of a straight line as possible and away from moving parts or anything you do not want to get hot. Basically you want to keep minimum of a 1 inch distance from anything around it. Once you settle on the orientation of all the parts you want, go ahead and clamp everything down. We will start working on our clamps going from the the forward to the back of the vehicle. Once you get everything tightened down you might want to take a second look to make sure nothing has moved on you while you were tightening it down. Again make sure everything has stayed as far away as possible from moving objects and keep it as far as possible from the spare tire. Next thing to do is go ahead and start the engine and enjoy the new noise. There you have it for the install of part number 16612 from Maganaflow performance Exhaust.
Wiring Harness Installation- 2008 Ford Escape - etrailer.com
http://www.etrailer.com/tv-wiring-install-2008-ford-escape-2.aspx Videos are provided as a guide only. Refer to manufacturer installation instructions and specs for complete information. Today on this 2008 Ford Escape we are going to install part number 118430 from Tow Ready. This is our T-One wiring harness connector that is also a power converter. The first steps involved is opening the hatch of the vehicle and removing the two tail lights to get to our access points for our wiring connections. First we will take off the drivers side tail light. Just for now we are going to disconnect from the wire harness right here, this will actually be our connection points we are going to make. Then we will go over to the passenger side. :32 At this time we can go ahead and start installing our T-1 connector. We are going to start off back over on the drivers side. What we are going to do is our 4-pole in the cavity behind the bumper, same thing with the modulite itself, as well as 1/ 2 if the T connector with the green wire, that is going to go all the way down too. Now our connection point with the T connector with the yellow wire we are going to keep, and that is going to stay behind the tail light. We will go ahead and make our connections. These two will plug together, you might hear a small snap. This half is going to get plugged back into the tail light, but we can not do that yet because we have to install our ground. 1:04 The ground is going to go straight into the sheet metal here. Lets go ahead and reinstall our drivers side tail light. We will go underneath the vehicle now and run the green wire to the passenger side. We are going to route the green wire behind the fascia supports behind the bumper, all the way across. Next we will do the same thing with the 4-pole, but we will leave it by the hitch. Then, we will install our converter box and mount that permanently using the adhesive that comes with it. We are going to install it on the flat piece of sheet metal right back here. We will use some zip ties now and just zip tie it to the supports. Now we will push the other half of the T-One connector up through the tail light. Same thing as before, take the one matching end to the T connector and plug it into the factory wiring harness. We will take up any extra wire we have, take up the slack with a zip tie to keep it away from the Exhaust on the bottom. Same thing as the drivers side, install the wire harness to the back of the tail light. Back underneath the vehicle on the drivers side by the tail light we are going to go ahead and deal with the red wire and what it does. This wire goes up to the battery of the vehicle that powers the modulite. We are going to use a butt connector and the 10 gauge wire that came with the installation kit to attach to it. Throw some electrical tape around it and we will head up to the front of the vehicle. 2:45 We ran our wire up alongside the frame rail, keeping it away from the suspension and followed the factory wire harness whenever possible. We went through this cross member right here and alongside and above the gas tank, working our way from there. Then we pushed the rest of our bundle up into the engine compartment, so we will reach down and pull it out. We will tie it off here to keep it safe and out of the way. Then we will follow the wire harness up and around and tuck the wire behind the power box here. We will pull it out towards the battery, shorten it up, and on this end here we will install the fuse holder. It is pretty simple to do, cut the loop in half and on one side we will add a ring terminal and on the other a butt connector. With the butt connector end we will hook up to the black wire and cover it with electrical tape too. We are going to make our final connection to the battery. First, we will disconnect the negative terminal, so we will not shock ourselves working with the positive terminal. On the positive terminal we have a stud that we can attach our power wire too, it is a 6 milliliter thread, so we will use a nut and a washer from the local hardware store to attach to that. Put our ring terminal on there, a flat washer, and the nut. Once the terminals are reconnected to the battery we will install the fuse to the fuse holder and then check our work with the light tester on the 4-pole out back. There you have it for part number 118430 from Tow Ready.
