|californiadreamin||I actually did it without removing anything but the uppipe....well beextreme04 was the one who knew what he was doing, so that helps haha. Took a few hours but def can be done with some long extensions and long arms.|

|ronnie32567||03 195,000 I have to replace all injectors, blue spring update, turbo drain tube update and I have an exhaust leak at drivers side up pipe/turbo connection, so I'm removing both up pipes to check for cracks, holes, ect. did I read correctly that the exhaust manifolds have to come off to get the up pipe out?|

I have an 05 and did not have to remove turbo in order to remove uppipe. I removed the downpipe. I am lifted so I have some space under the truck. You need some long extension to remove the bottom bolts of the uppipe. With the downpipe removed there is enough room to get to the top bolts. I have done this 4-5 times myself.
I had to get smogged last year and passed no problem even with ID Extreme St installed. I cut my uppipe right at the tee and welded a plate to cover the hole. The tee piece is also welded closed. It is basically a solid uppipe and plug for egr cooler. I have a Bulletproof Diesel Egr cooler but no gases from uppipe can get into it. I also have my egr valve in place and plugged in but it is welded shut. I do not have any codes with any of my ID Tunes.

|smokersteve||Nope, you dont need to touch any coolant parts. Just the turbo and exhaust manifolds.|

|californiadreamin||Did you have to drain any coolant to get the up pipe out? Just take off turbo right?|

I wouldn't even consider doing it without removing the turbo-kudos to you.
As for plugging the EGR and not getting a code, you have a 2006. There is no chance you can do that-lol. Sorry! If you get an 05 PCM that hasn't been updated past the vxcf4 flash you can eliminate the EGR without setting a light, or getting a flow code!

When my dad and I done my sneaky pipe. The top bolts come out with me on the bottom turning the socket and him doing the superman on top holding a u-joint with socket. It sucks but can be done. I'm sure different trucks have more or less room, but mine had enough to do the job. Having the downpipe out of the way made that task possible.
i believe unplugging the egr valve wouldn't let the fan run or something along those lines, maybe a few other things as well, but that's the one I remember.

I'm going on a 420 mile trip tomorrow morning and I figured that would be the easiest way to keep the hot exhaust away from the coolant and engine.
