Y pipe question

My diesel mechanic told me that my Y pipe on my 6.0l is cracked. If you really rev the motor with the hood open exhaust comes out of the engine compartment. And i get lots of fumes in the cab. Can you see this pipe from under the hood? Also is there any way to repare the pipe instead of replacing it?? Any help would be great

its the upipe that feeds the turbo, it hooks to the back of the turbo,its the smaller pipe not the downpipe, it has expansion joints that look like bellows wrapped in a wire mesh that crack and leak no way to fix them, you just have to replace it, i think there are some aftermarket companies that make a solid pipe with no expansion joint

It is more likely that one of the bellows is cracked. If that's the case Elite sells a Y pipe with heavy duty bellows.

You would only see one side of them. Just crawl under your truck with a flashlight and check if you can see soot on the outside of all three bellows. As for price just check out Elite Engineering web site.

y pipes

I put the one on from liberator diesel. also have an EGR delete and used the long y pipe kit they sell. worked great and don't worry about the bellows now.

I changed mine when i did the studs. all I recommend is get new bolts save ya a bunch of grief when putting it back together.

2003 F350 CC, SB, KR. Bushwacker Pocket flares, 06 engine. EGR delete. ARPs. SCT livewire GH tunes, Liberator Y pipe ,airaid cold air, Banks TechniCooler, 03 Turbo W/BATMOWHEEL, magnaflow turbo back straight pipe, single 4" with 5 inch tip, STC fitting, Sinister Coolant Filter, ELC coolant, Pure power Oil fuel filters, 6.4 banjos, 4 inch procomp, 22x10 ultra chrome 247 lightings, 325 50 R22 Nitto Trail Grappler M/Ts

Did you do the studs as a preventative measure or did you blow a head gasket?.
