What he did was taper in the sides of the Y flange. The stock flange leaves an air dam on either side that creates all kinds of turbulence right at the flange. Tapering the sides as Adrian has done will smooth the transition from the pipes into the flange area an improve the flow into the turbo. Will this help spool up? I think it has to. As far as lowering EGT's, I don't know but I'm sure this can't do anything but improve the flow into the turbo. Nice job Adrian.

I think its time you get your head out from where the sun doesnt shine and realize something. Look at any big power "big 3" and look at what setups they're running.

Im still waiting to see the proof that a vgt of the same size compressor comparison will out perform a non vgt. Sure it may be a little bit more responsive down low (not by much) the 6.0 can only go so far with a larger charger with its motor build specs. So again think before you sling poo over the cave walls.

If u look Greg I just removed that post I was in the wrong thread… I think this mod could also be applied to the y pipes used in non vgt setups

Mitch is right on what I did. Like I stated before, I was running late and couldn't fully explain. Before I do explain let me just say that I'm not selling this mod. It's a free mod that I'm giving to 6.0 powerstroke owners, I'm not getting any money from it.

So here's the deal, the mod is simple 101 hot rodding, remove restiction of air flow and smooth it out. When I had my y pipe out I looked at the inside of the collector. What I noticed was that the two pipes meet in the middle, but what I also noticed is that the outside of the pipes inside the collector was being forced into a 90 degree due to the collector being round. I you have a collect stick you finger in it and you will see what I mean, I tried to get a picture of it but it's hard to see. So I thought about it and saw that if I tried to port the inside of the collector to smooth the exhaust flow that I would break through the sides. So then I thought I could cut the metal and then weld a piece to make the angle I wanted. But, that seemed too much work then I thought if I build the outside of the collector and then go in the inside of the collector and port it to a smooth flow it would work. Well that's what I did, build the outside and then grind the inside so the exhaust is flowing to the collector and not hitting the a 90 and then going to middle where the rest of the exhaust gasses have to push the restriction gasses and themselfs to the center of collector before going into turbo. Like I said easy 101 hot rodding, get rid of restriction and the velocity is increased. Relief restriction and backpressure gets less, which decreases EGT's, increase velocity and spool increases, exhaust now is more effective.

The mod is not rocket science, but it is working nice on my truck and wanted to share with members and not hide it. I really don't understand what is so negative about sharing this mod. Like I said I don't have the numbers and why should I go through the trouble to get the numbers, I'm not selling the mod I'm giving it away for nothing. I hope I explained it and made it clear, if not get a hold of a y pipe and use the pictures for referance, it will become clear then. Thanks Adrian
