exhaust leak....

i was in the process of doin the foil delete and i saw the up pipes comin from the headers and they had like black streeks comin down the side... is that normal or is any amount of black considered an exhaust leak... im hoping this is the problem to low boost levels so maybe someone can shine some light... if it is considered a leak then what do u suggest i do untill i can get it in the shop

no it's not normal. It is an exhaust leak and from what i've heard pretty common on the 7.3's. Mine leaks there too just havnt had time to fix it. Was talking to Marc about it and said it's best to replace the up pipes when you fix the leak. They aren't expensive. An be sure to soak all the bolts before removing. They have a tendency to break if not soaked.

Well i finally fully read your post. If you are taking it to the shop would'nt worry bout what I said. should be ok till you can get it in the shop.

any good penetrant. PB Blaster is a good one. Just spray it on the best you can from all angles and let it soak. Marc was saying soak it the night before.

Either or, just soak it before you work on it. That or, soak them in advance over a period of time once a day prior to doing any work, assuming we're talking about the up pipes.

I didn't have any issues with the t-bolt clamp's hex nuts on the intercooler tube.

you could drive it. The heat should help the penetrant get into the threads. It'll smoke a little though from the burn off
