Your Billy Boat Exhaust system was designed to be a direct replacement exhaust system, while offering the best performance, finish and value available from a stainless steel exhaust system. Proper installation will ensure a lifetime of quality and performance from this product.

Please follow these instructions carefully to get the most from your Billy Boat Exhaust system.

1) Disconnect the NEG (-) battery terminal. Disconnecting power from your vehicle may allow the computer to “clear” its memory during installation.

2) With the engine cool, remove the factory exhaust system, starting from the first connection after the catalytic converter, and working back. In some cases, where the factory exhaust system is one piece, it may be necessary to cut it in sections for easy removal (the Billy Boat Exhaust system, in most cases, comes in sections for simple installation).

3) Be sure to inspect all gaskets and rubber hangers before installation and replace as necessary. The use of high temperature silicone between each connection may further improve the exhaust seal.

4) Starting at the catalyst, secure the first pipe of your new exhaust system-using factory mounting locations.

5) Secure the next component/pipe in the system and work back one section at a time. HINT: secure the exhaust system with all hardware finger tight.

6) With the Billy Boat Exhaust system “hanging loose,” position each pipe where it has the best center point and begin tightening all hardware as you work back. Do not force the exhaust system to fit! If seems to not fit properly, please call the Billy Boat Exhaust toll free tech line at (888) 228.7435. Tip-Angles

There is a slight difference in the tips, one is angled and bends down at the weld while the other is straight. Be sure to put the angled tip (A), on the passenger side and the straight tip (B), on the driver side. If it looks like one tip is slanted down more than the other after install, it may be that they are on the wrong sides so just switch them around.

7) Reconnect the battery NEG (-) terminal.

8) Start vehicle.

9) With the vehicle running at an idle, check for exhaust leaks at each connection. If there is a leak check that the mounting hardware is tight. If so, check the gasket for wear and replace as necessary.

10) Enjoy your Billy Boat Exhaust!
