Truck over heating.......Y pipe???

I have recently started towing a travel trailer (approx 9000lbs loaded) and my truck overheats when towing up hill.
It is a completely stock 02 7.3 crew cab.

I spoke to a diesel mechanic today and he told me that it is more than likely the Y pipe leaking that is causing the overheating and he recommended using the International Y pipes instead of the Ford ones.

So, I have a few questions.
Is an up pipe and a Y pipe the same thing?
Does anyone have the part number for the international parts?
How bad is this job to do?

The mech. wanted $1100 to do the job. Thoughts?

That is part of what I am trying to determine. After searching for over an hour I gave up.

Or water pump?

Leaking up pipes will kill your power.

How do you figure?
Leaking pipe = less boost. Engine has to work harder to make up for the lack of boost (especially up hill)....makes sense to me.
