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?

I would definitly go with that one. Strokers unlimited also sells them, but they are slow to deliver.

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.
