Question Y-pipe R&R

Hey guys. I will be replacing the y-pipe on my Dad's 03 F-250.

Any advice on the procedure is helpful. Also, can I get a list of all the tools needed to do this job, as well as a parts list?

Why I have the up-pipe out, I am thinking about welding a plate into the pipe where it connects to the EGR cooler. Any advice on this as well?

Its a pretty easy thing to do. First, make sure you have some extensions (18-24"), some PB blaster or rust penetrant of your choice, a 13mm socket, a 10mm wrench, a deep well 11mm, and someone to help you on top. First, remove the turbo (you're going to want to replace the turbo drain o-ring), then you can get to work on the Y pipe bolts, and remove the up-pipe if you want. Do the up-pipe after you get the Y pipe out, because it won't clear to get it out if you try and take the up-pipe with it. Pull it out the same direction as the turbo. You may have to remove the alternator too (I pulled it, on the one I did) Its not too bad, but you will want/need help with this

Just go bad and crack due to heat. Replacing with solid Liberator pipe.

Y-pipe replacement is fairly straight forward, the hardest part is going to be removing the turbo then your home free. If you have any questions feel free to PM me.

Use PB Blaster on the bolts. Soak them for a good amount of time before you try and take them off
