It's more than likely the flex joint on the "y" pipe. I have seen a couple manifolds leaking and Ford does have manifold gaskets for them now. They are built without manifold gaskets.

You have a leak in your up pipe or y pipe. And on the manifolds, I got under my truck to do my EGR delete and noticed my exhaust manifolds on both sides had finger loose bolts in them.

I might be able to help if I could follow what you're asking without making my eyes and head hurt

I think I found one capital letter.

No insight needed. Its glaringly obvious. I'd bet my house that I'm not the only person who had trouble reading that. After seeing your post, it also obvious why you had no trouble interpreting.

You're not perfect either. I understood the post perfectly clear and i'm a very smart guy and use "big" words in everyday converation. I sometimes don't type things out perfectly either, when i'm in a rush i leave lots of things out to make up time. Maybe he was busy at the time of the post. Whatever the case. I think it would have been better to return to the previous page instead of post a comment.

keeping this on topic, you should start the truck and have a friend rev it and see if you can pinpoint the exact location of the smoke.

I never said I was, and I know I don't type things perfectly. And I'm probably not as smart as you or a lot of other people on this board. Most of the words I use have less than 3 syllables. But there are a lot of people who won't take the time to finish reading his post due to the lack of clarity (capitalization and punctuation). And he may not get the assistance or advice he's seeking. Not this time, and possibly not the next time he has a question.
