Cracked Y-pipe, Got Soot!LOL!

Just got back on wednesday from a camping trip, 400mile round trip, truck ran great using ID's street tune, towing a 7k 5er. Friday I was heading to work when the bellows of the Y-pipe decided to let loose. Poop happens!!! I'm just glad it let go while at home, and not 200miles away.

I ordered from Tousley Ford, my local dealer usually gives me a good deal on parts but they have a new parts guy behind the counter, so we're not on a first name bases yet. I couldn't get him to give me the lowball price, they wanted $368 and I told him that I could get it online from Tousley for $243, all well there lost!

It should be here by Tuesday, and on the truck by the end of the week. In the mean time, I'll be getting crappy MPG and soot out the tailpipe!! LOL!

How does the cracked piped make it smoke/soot so much. That's amazing that soot gets all over like that. My tip is about in the same place as yours and I have zero soot on my fender/bumper. I have always wondered how people's fenders get coated. Before I moved my tip down and more sunk in it was about an inch away from fender and still no soot, does your truck smoke alot. I have heard that about innovatives tunes. I have matt's tunes and I hardly smoke at all. I love it. The diesel guys around me think if u smoke ur fast but I don't smoke and I'm faster. Hahaha

Cracked "Y" pipe prevents the turbo from spooling fast enough for the demand of fuel. Also, my tip sits behind the dually hips and the hips and mud flaps create a void of air flow to push the exhaust fumes to the rear, the hips/mud flap let's the fumes swirl around the body panel. At least that's my theory!! LOL!

A little off topic but I wanted to ask. I thought it was bad to tow on "street tunes"

ID's street tune can tow up to 10K when studded. It just takes a little common sense and gauges.

The "Y" pipe going to the turbo. The up-pipe goes to the EGR cooler then to the y-pipe. Sorry for the confusion, I'll correct my other post.

Wow, Rich. That's such a chore to replace too. Like you said, it certainly could have been worse if it happened when you were out of town towing a heavy trailer. $125 difference in price; I would have gone with Tousley as well.

The replacement is the easy part, it's letting the 40yr old body recuperate from laying on the rad support!! It's a Bit¢h getting old!! LOL!!
