Exhaust Leak Under Hood?

Hey guys,
For some reason I have had intermittent times of strong exhaust smell in my cab. Usually at startup when I am warming the truck up. Sometimes you barely notice it, and other times it is strong enough to where it makes my eyes water. Any ideas? Can't find a leak anywhere, but then again I can't really get a good look from above or underneath/


Cheers

Look for soot. Did you remove it lately?

Sent from my phone that somebody didn't help me get.

There are flex sections on the y pipe, prone to cracking. Any loud noises lately?

There is a little bit of a "whir" sound when accelerating if you know what a mean. Not the throaty sound of the muffler or the whine of the turbo, but in between

You may have a cracked flex joint, do you get on it hard from time to time, or putt around?
