Exhaust leak (up pipe)

Hi there, got a f350 6.0 that I had the egr delete studs etc put on it, I started it up today and there is the worst sounding whistle coming from the truck I thought it was the turbo that is bad but I took the boot off the intake and felt the turbine and it's fine I then tracked the sound to the exhaust passenger side the pipe that connects to the manifold then up to the turbo area, the flex point here is split and letting a lot of air out and making a horrible noise.

see the attached photo below showing the part.

My question is what would be the solution to this problem, Do I just need the stainless UP pipe or do I need to replace the whole y pipe how common is it just for one of the flex to split. I need to pull the turbo anyway to clean so I will fit the new part while the turbo is off. I was thinking of just getting the stainless UP pipe and then hopefully this will solve the problem, but I want it to be resolved and not have an ongoing issue.

Any help will be great

Cheers Phil

Since you are removing the turbo for cleaning it will make this repair easier. You do not have to replace the complete Y pipe unless you wanted to. Since your EGR is deleted you only have to replace the bellow with a straight pipe. I just got done replacing the up pipe on mine due to a crack in the bellows. I chose to replace it with a stock up pipe and close off the flange to the egr cooler.
