I'm not a certified mechanic but I managed to pull this duramax apart and put it back together. The good thing is everything works right!

I have to be careful because my transmission is still stock.
Duramax Performance Upgrade-Phase 1-Removing Stock Parts HD
I got more parts to put on my duramax. The next day I will take the downpipe off, start removing the Exhaust manifold and replacing it with the BD. Then I will replace the fuel pressure regulator, delete the egr, replace the mouth piece, install new Intercooler pipes, install mbrp downpipe, hook up the gauges, and tune to ppe level 3.
