6.0 Y Pipe issue tip

I have done a few EGR deletes and always had trouble getting the Y pipe back on with out a leak. After rebuilding my 6.0 and putting everything back together I had a leak at the Y pipe at the turbo. The local powerstroke guys were taking care of my a/c issue and showed me the "EASY" way to re install y pipe on first try.

Take a ratchet strap.
Hook dead end into Y of pipe running over the top of the turbo.
Hook the ratchet end into the core support just above the passenger head light.
There is a hole in the plastic
(might have a white/clearish round sticker covering it.)

ratchet down tight then put your clamp on ypipe to turbo.

I have used this on my 05 and a couple of 04's and its great. Wish I had known that on the first 3 I did.

How exactly will it hold to the "y" part of the up pipe..?
Won't it slip off?

If you run the strap over the to of the turbo then down in the split between the pipes the strap will wedge in the split and the eye of the hook will hold on the bottom side of the split.then tighten up snug. Your not needing a huge bind on it. If your are nervous if it as I was the first try you can tape a bolt in the eye to insure it won't pop off but I have used this trick 5 times since posting without it slipping.

hmmm if you're having that much trouble lining up the y-pipe flange then perhaps there are other issues.

If your Y doesn't line up effortlessly then forcing it into place isn't doing anything but stressing the flex pipes. Either find a better source of EGR delete up-pipes that fit properly or don't tighten the up-pipe to exhaust manifold bolts until last.

I have gone as far as loosening the turbo pedestal bolts to get the turbo lined up properly. By taking the extra time to line up the flange correctly your saving yourself or someone else a hastle in the future. An EGR delete isn't the end all solution, eventually someone will be back in there for something.
