Up-pipes or just the gasket?

I have an an exhaust leak on the passenger side up-pipe where it connects to the turbo. I ask because I want to order only the parts I need because I'm not keeping the truck much longer and I want to have all the parts I need ready to go when I tear into this.

Here's a picture:

You know what, I've been looking at some pictures of people replacing the up-pipes and it appears that it has a sleeve that goes into the cast piece, meaning this is most likely the Pipes.

most of the time its just a "gasket" or the donut.. they tend to waller out over time and do exactly that.. if you're planning to sell it soon, i'd just go with OEM replacement. If intentions change and you plan on keeping it, go with the brass donut upgrade from beans, or bellowed uppipes..

It depends on how hard the trucks been run, and how high EGT's have gotten in order for it to be the pipes.. they're usually fine, just bad gaskets..

Even when it's leaking like the picture? I was planning on replacing them with pipes from rockauto.com. They look bellowed in the picture and are only about $200 shipped which is cheaper than anything else I can find.

i believe so.. bellowed up-pipes are going to have like an expandable steel around the top.. its kinda hard to explain..

kinda like these Free Shipping on International Bellowed Up-pipe Kit 99.5-03 1837872C93

hopefully someone else will chime in..

Replace the doughnuts now and you will be doing it again later, Replace with bellowed up-pipes and never have to do it again..

the bolts are almost impossible to get loose as well.
and many times the pipes get worn out and wont re seal with new gaskets anyways.

bellowed is a good option.but if your selling the truck it might be cheaper to just get new stock up pipes or just try gaskets.
