up pipe

My stock up pipes are not holding up. I have had them replaced twice. The bellows keep failing and I loose my pressure. Replaced with ford parts by ford both times. Is there an aftermarket solution? What are the bellows even there for? It connects two solid mounted parts, turbo and manifold, so why isn't it just a solid pipe?
I can only make 21it lbs now loaded with my 27 foot enclosed trailer all packed up in tow mode.

Egr delete, studs, gaskets, cts, 4in straight out,

The bellows are for vibrations and misalignments between the piping, manifolds, turbos. Check out liberatorperformance.net and marylanddieselperf.com they both have other alternatives. I prefer the ones from maryland diesel as they have heavy duty bellows on both sides and it is also cheaper. Hope this helps

Ok well I am going to assume that you are talking about the driver side manifold and pipe.

No I havent ran either because mine are still good, but if/when I do I am going with the style from MDP because i want bellows to allow for some flex and I have had guys testify that they hold up to like 100 psi.

pas

no mine keeps failing on the passenger side. the longer pipe. liberator has exactly what i need, a one piece pipe set from the manifold all the way to the turbo, less joints less problems i would think.

I would just be afraid of everything not lining up properly. It does have one bellows so there would be some way to account for misalignment and vibrations. Its up to you but would probably be ok. I forgot. Innovative Diesel also sells the liberator ones but they are more expensive through them.

I talked to Shawn at Liberator a couple of months ago, they don't sell the long solid y-pipe anymore. He explained to me that there was fitment issues with people installing them, so he discontinued making them.

Here is the one he stopped selling.
