Hey guys just bought a 01 7.3 and the up pipes are leakin pretty bad. Was wondering which fix you would recommend the brass donut things, the bellowed international up pipe kit, or just factory parts?

Up pipes are a royal pain. Do it right and go with the bellowed pipes so you won't have to do it again in a few years.

Generally you'll see black soot around the flanges if you crawl under the rig and look with a flashlight.

Bellowed up-pipes are the way to go. Here are some instructions on the replacement and a link for them as well.

How long have you had DI's pipes? They have been on backorder for about 2 years now and they told me they were not coming back.
