cracked Y pipe

Iam not sure yet i want to pressurize the system first i have a mad boost leak only boosting 20pounds max and when i go to get on it i its really noisey in the truck sounds like air going against the fire wall..iam not sure if these are common to go or not on these trucks but i do recall the last time i took it off ( y pipe) at the coil or spring section it had a lot of play in it i would think it shouldnt have alot maybe a little but i ask my buddy at ford and he looked at it for a sec and didnt say anything then was like its should be ok so that didnt make me feel to good so iam asking you guys what do you think?....i put a freeze plug where the egr cooler goes because i have the full delete kit so i dont know if that has something to do with it

failed y-pipes are common on 6.0's. the flex usually is where they crack and leak.

I agree... and a mother to change out..... can be done on the truck.... remove the turbo, take the v-clamp off the exhaust remove the manifold bolts and replace... then when you put it back together leave everything loose, tighten the v-clamp, then the turbo then the manifold nuts.... also need to be gumby and have small hands..... helps but it is common... good luck
