I know I'm not crazy (IC pipe removal)

I'm doing an egr delete w elbow and cold side pipe and I've already painted them red to match my truck. I consider myself pretty knowledgeable on 6.4s. I went to take the hot side pipe off and I have not been able to remove it! It looks like the bottom is hitting the power steering pump. I assume there has to be a way to get this off without this much trouble. Anybody have any tips?

Umm... do you mean the pipes coming from the intercooler? Those are cold side. Moving on, you have the pipe unbolted on top and bottom right? I'd try to pull it through the bottom if you haven't already. It may be easier on mine since I'm missing a few large pieces that normally interfere with that pipe.

I don't think you're going to get much paint to stick to the hotside (exhaust manifolds).

I think he means the bottom driver side pipe which would be the "hot"side.
Not sure why if won't move for you though...?

Hot side pipe refers to the hot compressed air from the turbos going to the intercooler, not the exhaust manifolds. Also why are you removing the hot side pipe for the installation of the cold side pipe. Sorry if I am missing something.

Yeah sorry, when I read hot side to me it means exhaust. Otherwise, it's all cold on the intake side.

If you're starting your EGR delete at 4:30; I hope you don't need to be anywhere tomorrow AM. LOL

Most people just cut the hot side pipe. I believe there is another way, but it's a major pain in the butt.

^ There is some confusion in this thread!! Lol
SickStroke - I believe you are thinking the connection between the egr coolers? The OP is talking about the hot side intercooler pipe, like the cold side pipe that squeezes between rad and support, only on the bottom driver side.
