Hi:

I'm purchased a new turbo and am having my shop install it. The truck has ~ 93,000 miles. While I have the turbo off, do I need to have bellowed up-pipes installed as a preemptive service? The bellowed up-pipes aren't cheap but it's very labor intensive so the labor will be expensive. I'd rather not add this expense, but on the other hand, if I need to do it, it will be cheaper with the turbo already off.

To my knowledge, I don't have any leaks on my current / original stock turbo and up-pipes.

Thanks in advance!

Thanks for all the replies folks. I decided to err on the side of caution and bought the Dorman up-pipe kit to be installed next week with the new turbo. I bought the Turbo from Barder Turbo and James Barder said the kit was ok, but the hardware wasn't so good. Apparently some of the bolts are too long and bottom out. So I'll do a test fitting off the truck and make sure the bolt aren't too long. I used an online coupon and got them for $151 from Advanced Auto.

In addition, I bought the RiffRaff Fuel Rail Crossover and the RiffRaff HPX Stainless Steel High Pressure Crossover (Oil crossover) to be installed at the same time.

Thanks for the help!
