BD Diesel Uppipes V.S. Delete Pipe on a Stock 03 6.0L

Hi all,
I am not sure if I should go with the BD Upipe kit or retain my stock Y pipes and use the delete pipe (likely from Sinister or another quality brand). I would like to go with BD for the one piece design and quality. I read too many stories of delete pipes not fitting correctly.
However, in a stock truck, I may not see any benefit in using the BD system and, I would still need to purchase the coolant reroute tube. Further, the BD system might not be cost effective if I purchase a good delete kit.
What are your thoughts? Thanks!

I would go with the bd, I’ve ran stock on my truck with a delete and still broke. If you have a 2003 make sure you get the bd up pipe for the 2003. It will come with the heat shield.

Not trying to hijack this thread, but is this an easy install, and if I already own the updated line is there anything else I need to do this?

It wasn’t bad, to me it one of those update that need to be done on the 2003, it comes with all the gaskets.

Wow! Thanks for the link. I do need to do that update as well. The quick connect fitting is starting to weep oil.

Okay, I will be sure to get the heat shield version.
Can you not pull the 03 heat shield and place it on the BD uppipes?
