Intermediate skill is required for this installation.
This MagnaFlow Loop Delete Y-Pipe is made of two and a half inch mandrel bent stainless steel tubing. It's going to delete the factory loop pipe for better off road clearance and it'll work with long arm travel kits. The Y-pipe is going to outflow the factory Y-pipe for better performance and it comes with everything you need for installation, today we're going to install it on our 2016 Jeep Wrangler.
Tools you'll need for this installation: a lift or jack and jack stands, 3/8" ratchet, 1/2" ratchet, 18 millimeter socket, 13 millimeter socket, 15 millimeter socket, 17 millimeter wrench, 16 millimeter wrench, 15 millimeter wrench, tape measure, safety glasses, a Sharpie, and a sawzall.
We have our Jeep up in the air. The first thing we're going to do is actually make the cut. We're not going to disconnect any part of the exhaust just yet. We want it to be nice and sturdy, so we can make our cut nice and easily. Then once it's cut, we'll remove the Y-pipe and the loop pipe. Here is the loop pipe as you can see it's big and it can get in the way. How we're going to get rid of this? We're going to cut it out, make a mark, cut it out and then put in our new section. Grab yourself a tape measure and you're going to measure from the weld on the catalytic converter three inches back. Make a mark at three inches behind the weld on the catalytic converter and that's where you're going to make your cut. That's where we have to make our cut.
Before we remove any of the bolts especially right here on the Y-pipe, we're going to spray them with some penetrating lubricant. They're pretty corroded and we want to make it a little bit easier on ourselves. Give those a couple minutes to soak in and then you can try to break them free. After you've let them soak with penetrating lubricant, you can break them loose. Remove the second bolt on the loop pipe, then remove the loop pipe itself. With the loop pipe gone, we're going to unbolt the passenger side of the Y-pipe just to give us a little bit more wiggle room to get the loop delete pipe in.
You don't need to remove Y-pipe just unbolt it up here and it'll give you a lot of wiggle room. With the loop pipe removed, now you can undo this clamp, so you can remove the Y-pipe. It's a 15 millimeter on this clamp and it's in a really tight spot, definitely not easy to loosen. But if you take your time, you will get it. This clamp is welded to the pipe, you're not going to be able to remove. All you need to do is loosen it, so you can wiggle out the Y-pipe. Once you get the Y-pipe out of the factory cat back exhaust, you need to remove this brace right here, so you can actually fully remove the Y-pipe. There's three 18 millimeter bolts that secure it in place.
Now that the factory Y-pipe is out of the way, we're going to reinstall this bar right here. But then we have to remove this skid plate. Grab the Y section of the Y-pipe, then install it into the factory cat back exhaust. Maneuver it up into place. Slide it in the factory exhaust. Put the provided clamp on the passenger’s side of the Y-pipe. Grab the passenger’s side portion of the Y-pipe kit, install the flange over the Y-pipe. Then you're going to connect this to the Y-pipe and to the factory catalytic converter. Push it up and over. Slide it in. Then push it into place to make sure it meets up with factory cat. Grab the loop delete pipe and install a flange and a clamp on to it. Then install this on the driver’s side.
With everything in place, we're going to tighten up the flange on the passenger side. You can use the provided hardware that comes with the kit or you can use the factory hardware. Then tighten the clamp on top of the loop delete. Then the flange on the loop delete. Make sure you tighten the flange evenly. Then do this clamp on the Y-pipe. Finally, tighten the clamp that connects the Y-pipe to the cat back. As you can see this kit really keeps the Y-pipe more towards the rear. It was right here, which was much closer to the drive shaft. It's further back, now you have more clearance from the drive shaft. Then reinstall your skid plate and your installation's finished.
Our MagnaFlow Loop Delete Y- pipe kit is installed. It gave us a lot more clearance. Installation wasn't too bad either. It's going to take about an hour and a half, maybe two hours. Make sure you measure twice and cut once and before you know it, you'll be heading off road.
