New exhaust questions

I got my DE 4" straight pipe installed tonight, but there are a couple leaks on the rear 3 seams. I believe it is because of the placement of the clamps. How far forward/back should they be? It's behind the cab, so is it a big deal?

Are you using saddle or band clamps? Welding the pipes will give a leak free seal.

New exhaust questions

I'm using the clamps that came with the exhaust. Should they be over the slits that were cut for the fitting, or behind on the completely solid part?

with a diamond eye kit they come with saddle clamps they have to be on the female end of the pipe about an inch or so from the joint just watch how much u tighten them cause they crush the pipe and u will never get it appart the slits are just there to allow for the exspension of the end of the pipe but it should slide in far enough that the slits should have solid pipe behind them

I didn't plug my truck in last night and it got down to the hight 20s, low 30s. I went to start it this afternoon and took probably 10 attempts before it turned over. While it was cranking I noticed white smoke coming from under the hood, which was leaking from the down pipe/turbo connection. I tightened the clamp down even more (to the point it bent the t-head connection on the clamp. I cranked it again and still had the smoke coming from the down pipe. Is this common? Also, I want to buy a new clamp since I bent the current one, where is the best place to buy it?

New exhaust questions

What's the row pipe flange? Is it alright to drive it with the leak? Also, whats the name of the clamp so I can buy a new one?

Thanks for all the help, it's appreciated.

Don't know if the one you have a link to is correct but this one from riffraff is Riffraff Diesel: Motorcraft Downpipe T-Bolt Clamp 94.5-97
