Weird noise after egr delete *video*

Ok so I installed the sinister egr delete and now it makes a weird noise. It almost sounds like a cummins. I think its maybe an exhaust leak. I'm uploading a video so you can take a listen. I want to narrow the problem before I pull the turbo again. I took it up the road about a quarter mile and I still have boost but I can't tell if it is dropped from what it was. It definatly feels like I have a power loss though and I have almost bo boost at idle when reving the engine slightly. I just don't want anything majorly bad to happen driving it. Take a look and see what you think. Thanks in advance.

Well my lady got off work and I had her crank the truck up and hit the skinny hard to blow smoke and sure enough smoke came out from what looks to be the up pipes connection to the turbo. I watched the new sinister up pipe from under the truck and saw no smoke at all. You can only see it come out of the drivers side of the turbo.

Cracked y pipe I'm pretty sure....can you just weld them up or do they normally crack where you can't weld them?

Just adjusting and tightening the clamp won't work. You have to be sure the flanges fit together properly before tightening the clamp. You may need to loosen the 3 turbo mounting bolts and see if you can "jiggle" the turbo into place, then install the clamp. If you do need a Y pipe Strokers Unlimited have a really cool ceramic coated pipe. Hope this helps.

Thanks, ill check those out. Is it okay to drive with a cracked y pipe? Can I just pull it out and weld it up? It feels like it is leaking where the mesh material is. You were right about the flanges lining up, they were slightly off and I just willgled it in place. I'm kicking my self in the *** for not reading the directions on the egr delete. I think it cracked cause I did not loosen the drivers side up pipe when I was tightining everything up. Doh

I never loosen anything else when pulling a turbo. If it is cracked in the flex you will need a new pipe. Don't kick yourself, just learn from it.

Been down the same road with you. Thought the same thoughts too. All I had to do was just loosen the clamp from the up pipe to the turbo and it popped into place, then I just re tightened the clamp and all was good. Hope you have the same luck.

I had the same issue, loosened up pipe, removed turbo bolts and re-adjusted, then I tightened the up pipe and bolted down turbo. Problem solved.
