Turbo Y-pipe

I believe I have the symptoms or a cracked Y-pipe. Diesel smell in cab, turbo really lags when it's warm outside etc.

I'm doing a IPR EGR delete with up-pipe soon with some other upgraded stuff and if I find the Y-pipe is cracked ill obviously be replacing.

Question is, should I go with OEM or aftermarket? I see that Sinister has a Y-pipe setup, but it's also like $400.
Any opinions are appreciated.

You could take it to a good muffler shop and have them weld in new flex joints. It would be a lot cheaper.

Wouldn't something that was just a solid pipe be better than something with flex joints?

You could try that, but you wont like putting it on. The flex joints allow for a little movement when the engine moves, and for a MUCH easier install.

The price isn't too bad either. And that pipe will fit with the IPR up pipe right?

I phoned them a while back asking about any possible issues with stress due to heat cycling and/or vibrations and they stated that they have never had a reported failure so far. Still has me wondering about long term use though.
