OMG freakin up pipe

seriously replacing that pipe sucked bad. im glad i pulled the turbo to replace it, but still sucked. two bolts stripped, i would have been happy for a break, but no they stripped. plus, have you guys installed your exhaust kit before? what a pain in the a$$. my hangers were not perfect so that made it fun. plus i found a hole in my trans, not sure what it was from, so i had to weld up the pan. 12 hours later and im nearly finished. getting the up pipe to seal on the turbo was difficult. i found that if the manifold/up pipe bolts are loose it makes it easier. my pedistal bolts were gone, yes i said gone. how in the world did it not break something. well, now i can use my air .
btw, its like a whole new truck, im not scared to pull out in traffic anymore, it straights gets it done. crazy how fixing the leak and new exhaust wakes her up.

well for the 7.3s the bellowed kit has two pipes that are flexable and they use a flat metal gasket they are supposed to work much better but im not sure if they are used on the 6.0 for sure

it sounds like the ones that are on the 6.0. there was only one gasket though, the others were pressed fit.
the truck is fun again.

i have to do mine on my 7.3 but i am going to be doing it when the trans it out, should be easier then. the one nice thing (the only one) about the 6.0 in the vans is it is really easy to work on the back of the motor in those
