Cracked y-pipe....

Well it will be looked into further tomorrow but I might have a cracked y-pipe. Can it be taken out and welded? How much can I expect the pipe to cost and the labor?

Tousley Ford had them for $243 back in August, my local dealer wanted over $300.

Yes they can be cut out and replaced or solid piped.

Just saw yesterday of Facebook that Sinister is getting ready to come out with a solid Y pipe made out of stainless. Looked awesome!

Hello, my name is Nathan...and I am addicted to my skinny pedal!

I really do not think solid is a good idea. Maybe getting rid of both the flex joints on the pass side since its so long and two pieces, but solid on both sides is asking for trouble... like a cracked manifold.

Yes the turbo is solid and the manifold is solid, but think about the serious amount of heat dealt with, plus its a ***** to get that pipe in, having a little bit of flex to help the surfaces sit flush helps get a good seal. A solid pipe and I think its going to be exhaust leak city

Mine just cracked. I ordered one from tousley, the first one lasted 140K miles so I figured I would just stay stock.

I got mine for $130 from tousley, but they are cheaper for the 07 b/c the heatshield is not on the Y pipe.

Well, good news! Y-pipe is not cracked! The guy who has been working on the truck said the cold air boot closest to the turbo was not tightened all the way. Tightened up and no more whistle. JUST THE SOUND OF THE BAD *** EXHAUST THAT WAS PUT ON! I LOVE IT!
4inch diamond eye w/ no cat and a flow thru muffler, the growl and turbo sound is just sexy!
