I took mine to a custom muffler shop. They said after I enquired about 5 inch pipe that it was a waste of effort..No diff than 4 inch off the turbo..I had them straight pipe it back but put a high flow muffler on...sounds awesome and had no problem getting it all the way back, finished it off with the chrome tip..bada bing!

Make sure to leave everything loose until its all installed. Other than that the only tip I have is that if the pipes fit really tight you can use some sandpaper and sand the connections so they fit a little looser.

I didn't even look at that I just saw that someone had posted yesterday. :

So how did it go? Do you have any tips for someone else?

not really any tips, but start it with plenty of time to finish, and daylight is a must, flashlights dont work, and you need pacients to fit that 5 inch in there
