Up Pipe Problem

So my up pipes are leaking. Not just the gasket but there is a spot on my drivers side pipe that has hole rusted or cracked through.

Here is the problem $800 up pipes. There has got to be a better way. The 99 and up SD bellowed pipes are around $400 How much different can they be? I know the SD has a different turbo. No one makes a collector adapter to put the newer up pipes on our turbo?

Are the pipes thick enough to get away with welding up the hole and putting new gaskets on?

SD manifolds won't work.
If you are handy with a welder, you can repair the hole and weld in a set of bellows yourself. On second thought, if they have rusted through already you may be better off buying a new set of up-pipes and modifying them with bellows.
Other than that, like 351 said, Jake at Irate diesel is the only one I know of currently adding bellows to stock up-pipes for less than what International charges for OEM.
I was quoted $250 shipped + my cores a couple months ago. Not sure if that price is still valid.

Thanks. I will reach out to Jake. I can live with $250 - $300 a lot easier then $800. Is it really worth getting them Jet Hot (or similar) coated while they are out?

Depends on what you're going for.
Are you looking for heat retention or 'bling' factor and rust prevention?

Not really too interested in bling. Nobody sees them anyway. But I believe in upgrading to the best of my ability when I have to make a repair. I do not want to have to make the same repair twice and I like to improve performance while I am at it. So if coating will improve performance or efficiency of the turbo then I would do it. If it doesn't I would put the money somewhere else.

From what I hear jake at irate will def point you in the right direction on it, but hell jet coating would do some rust prevention too and if they are rusty now they will do it again

Where would you find the correct bellows to do it yourself?

They are $300 shipped and ceramic coated, I would imagine the ceramic protects from heat and rust, cant wait to get them TBH

Fordman. I have admired your truck for awhile.

Would you mind posting some pictures of the new pipes when they arrive? I would love to see them. $300 delivered and coated!! I am sold.
