Up pipes leaking which replacement

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?

Bellowed up pipes. Factory pipes will probably be no good from them leaking.....

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.

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.
