Y-PIPE

I need a new y-pipe, where can I find one? And any suggestions?? I have a 2003 6.0 and thinking of just welding a pipe over the bellow (steel braided crap)

Those bellows are in there to allow for they typical expansion and contraction due to the heat cycles of a street truck. You would be much better off to replace them with upgraded bellows that won't leak or blow out.

Just installed a one of MPD's up-pipes with heavy duty bellows was a nice piece.

One of the main purposes of the flex section is to help with installation and getting the pipes lined up on the turbo / up pipe / exhaust manifold. You can get away with a solid up pipe (no flex section), but replacing even one of the flex sections with a solid pipe on the Y pipe will give you fits when you're trying to line everything up. Don't ask me how I know.

I don't. I would just buy a set of 2" bellows from vibrant. They will be less restrictive than the stock ones and are rated to 90 psi of back pressure.
