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.
