Bellowed up-pipes

I discovered my up pipes are leaking and I think I can hear a slight tick. Anyways, I know I need to install the Bellowed up pipes. Anyone notice a difference after installing them? I am wishfully thinking it may be part of my lost mileage.

If you have an exhaust leak, that will lower your mpg's. Mine were leaking BAD and I picked up abt 1mpg after replacing the up pipes. I went with stock replacements though.

Like ^ said, not "performance" but help fix the issue and prevent future leaks.

What this nation needs is cleaner thoughts and dirtier fingernails...

yeah, I was unsure where to post, but thought this would work. I was mainly looking for reassurance on the $425 to get bellowed uppipes. (by the way We were A LOT better off about 8 trillion dollars ago!)

I noticed that after I did the up pipes, I no longer got headaches from the fumes.

Still pretty slow, just less slow now.

@Joel. How hard is it to replace the up pipes. I know you have to take the turbo out, is there anything else you have to remove?

The turbo comes out, ya.
It's not nearly as big a job as some people make it out it be. If you're somewhat me mechanically inclined it shouldn't take you more than 3 or 4 hours.
There are a few write ups on here somewhere.

Besides the International Bellowed pipes, you can find the "Dorman" version of them sometimes for $250 sometimes on ebay.
Thought about getting myself some.
I have Fel-Pro donuts to do the cheap fix for the leak until I pull the trigger on new up pipes.

That I do not know - but I have seen a few people on here, as well as Ford-Trucks.com get them, and work just the same.
