EGR delete - I now have loud hiss

Sounds like my motor is using an air compressor to dust itself off.

I'm thinking I have an exhaust leak. Since this is my first diesel/ turbo I'm not sure if an exhaust leak always sounds like the leaks I've had on my old small blocks. It seriously sounds like I popped a tire and the air is hissing out. The hissing also doesn't start immediately on start up. After a few seconds of running it starts and the sound gets louder with higher revolutions. At first I thought I had a massive vacuum leak but the engine runs fine and is not throwing any codes. Does a leak in the Y-pipe off the rear of the turbo sound like an air compressor leak?

Yep, sounds like your turbo is leaking where it meets the up-pipes. I've had this happen to mine when I did my EGR delete. It helps to leave the up-pipes and turbo mounts loose when you line up the turbo.

Make sure it's mated up perfectly before and after you put the v-band clamp on.

I had the same problem when I did mine. I ended up haveing to replace the y-pipe that comes off the turbo to the driver side exhaust manifold. The flex portion of it had a leak. Replaced it and running better than ever. Hope this helps.
