Definitely up-pipes, stocks usually only go 100,000k +-45,000miles, then the bellows go out...it's a whole lot easier doing them cab-off...Rudy's seem to be the go to brand...

06 VW Jetta TDI- all options, 100k, stock for now...catching up on maintenance...
04 Triumph Thruxton, cr special carbs, TPUSA cams, MAS side-covers, Lossa stubby exhaust, pingel petc*ck, etc...

Yes they do, more expensive but they do sell up-pipes for egr deleted trucks...

Man that sucks. I would go with the HD pistons from Rudy's. I'm not sure about the coating.

Since you have egr delete you can just get rid of the drivers side up pipe all together no need to spend money on a new one. Just drill and tap your blockoff plate for the ebp sensor

01/07 Job 1 F350 H&S Tuned. ARP Studs, AFE 4'' straight pipe, EGR delete with elbow, AFE stage 2 CAI, 6'' lift on 37s, 20x12 Fuel Nuts two piece, Sinister coolant filter, CCV Mod, Projector headlights HID kit
