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.

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.
