Replacing the up-pipe(s)

I have a cracked up-pipe on the right side. I called a local ford dealership to see how much to replace it. Pipe was $44 and change plus a gasket. The thing that got me was $600+ for labor. They said they had to remove the trans to get to it. So of course I said why. I told him if you were going to replace the turbo you wouldn't pull the trans.

So, my question is, does this sound right to you guys? I don't have $600 to fork out in labor costs.

No that is high, but it is the dealer. A good shop can probably do it for half that much in all honesty. Try posting in your hometown forum and see who does good work on these trucks.

They have to get to the exhaust manifolds, something you don't have to do when changing out a turbo. It's much more involved.

Don't think you have to remove the transmission to do that job, either way, there has to be a better (cheaper) option for you. Check out this link, directions on replacing the up-pipes by removing the turbo and replacing them with IH bellowed pipes.

"...If your transmission is currently out of your truck for the up-pipe swap, then your job just became 10 times easier." Hrm.

I have done them and no you don't need the tranny out. Would it make it easier? Sure, but so would pulling the engine. They are a real pain no doubt about it. Two people makes it easier.

The exhaust manifold part is the easy part.

Yea it sure would be easier, but I don't think it's worth the effort to remove the tranny to save on the up-pipe install. Like 7.3Lariat said, you can always find an easier way to do job x, but it can turn into job y and z where you end up netting yourself a lot more work and frustration.
