up pipe bellows repair??

Has any one repaired the bellows in their uppipes more specificely the driver side one. I was thinking of using a stainless flex joint like this.

Stainless Steel Flex Joint 2 ID, 4 Long [251 050] - $35.00 : Techtonics Tuning, VW and Audi Tuning and Repair Parts

What do you guys think, will it work? I've got a couple of them laying around from another project, I know you can get the parts from ford but this "downturn" in the economy, Thank you very much to the anointed one, has killed my pocket book. So cheap is good for right now. I need to get my truck back to pulling status as it looks like I might be picking up a remodel on a cabin, but ive got to move my 10,000 lb tool trailer 200 miles over some pretty steep hills.

Also wanted to verify that the uppipes are 2 inch pipe. Im going to lift the cab off to do the repair as it will make it easier to tackweld the parts together.

Drivers side I was stupid and forgot to loosen the uppipes when I pulled the turbo to clean it and replace my ICP sensor and connector.

I know you probably don't want to hear this, but the whole y-pipe is $160 through Tousley. The whole y-pipe can be replaced by just pulling the turbo and the FICM and being creative with the manifold bolts. Removing the inner fender liner would probably help quite a bit with this, though I did not do that.
That is if the leak is on the drivers side.

If it is the passenger side, its likely cheaper since that is the EGR side and is a short piece of pipe with the flex joint in it. (if you have an EGR cooler, that is)

Like I said I just dont have the cash to fix her with the factory parts. Ive had good luck with teh stainless flex pipes on NA exhaust systems but dont know if they will take the pressure off a preturbo joint. Ive got a couple of them in the shop collecting dust and I've been llooking to blow the dust off of my welder anyways.
