changing up pipe

What do you have to do to change the up pipe on the passenger side. Do you have to take out the turbo or can you just change it from under the truck?

You do not have to remove the turbo. I can replace mine in a couple of hours from under the truck. You will have to unbolt a couple of bolts from the motor. I have 35" tires which makes it easy to get under. You have 37", that should make it easier for you.

I just did this last month. The turbo can stay in place, but you'll need to remove the down pipe and passenger side fender liner.

Are you guys replacing these because they are bad or are you putting in the sneaky pipe? If you used the sneaky did you notice a difference and would you recommend it?

I never had to remove my fender liner. I forgot to mention about the downpipe, I always do that even though I have been told you do not need to. Make sure you have some long extentions. Put some anti-seize on your bolt threads so it is easier if you have to remove again. I use superglue to hold the metal gasket to the uppipe.

For me it was because my 05 had the up pipe with the scoop welded into it restricting flow... and while I was putting in the unrestricted pipe I put in the metal disc to block off the EGR.

I couldn't really tell if the unrestricted pipe made a difference or not... I thought I noticed a smal improvement, but who knows.

I can't tell if the EGR block off did anything for me either. I've been lucky with my truck, never puked fluid... I just did it as a precaution while I was in there. Had the radiator flushed prior to my last trip pulling the Toy Hauler... they over filled it and still it didn't puke. Temps were mild though... 60-75 degrees. I'm probably jinxing myself. It'll probably puke commuting to work this week.

I am wanting to go a different route. I have studs. Plugged the uppipe and I still puke. I only puke while towing heavy with some tunes. No puking what so ever not towing with any extreme tune. I think mine pukes from flash boil from too much heat. I would love to delete the cooler all together but California will start smogging diesels next year. I would not go with the plug again instead, a solid pipe that is separate from the cooler.
