Cracked Bellow in Driver Side EGR Up Pipe. HELP!!!

Hey guys, I've done a little research on the site and have read that some fellas instead of removing the cab off the truck and replacing the up pipe (drivers side) from the EGR cooler have actually installed the EGR block off plate from the manifold side of the EGR and placed it on the back side of the turbo; drilled and tapped the plate and inserted the back pressure sensor in it.

Does anybody have any pictures of this installation and or reports of problems with this method?

I have a boost leak due to the cracked bellow in the O.E.M. up pipe on the driver side, any input and or ideas?? Please help

Yep, I've done it. It's a little challenging, but not near as bad as removing the EGR. Having another pair of hands would be helpful, it's really tough by yourself (take my word for it).

I have been looking into this, but this is my first diesel, and am unsure of what the function of the up pipe is and what benefit deleting it will have. I saw a comment about having an egr delete and the ebp tube freezing in the winter. What is this all about? Sorry about all the questions but just want to know what I am doing before I delete something. Thanks for all the info, this site has Nd will continue to be a great resource

You cannot delete the up pipes. There is an egr crossover pipe that you can delete but you have to delete the egr coolers also. There is no need for the egr crossover once the coolers are removed. The only thing you would need to do is relocate the ebp sensor which is covered in the thread I linked to the previous post.

What purpose did this crossover pipe serve when the egr was on the truck? What does it do it anything with the egr deleted?

It feeds exhaust gas to the EGR, and it's also where the Exhaust Back Pressure sensor is located. If there's no EGR, all it runs is the EBP sensor. The EBP sensor can be relocated if you want to remove the pipe.
