Bellowed up pipe install

I know i read a post on one of the forums a while back (dont remember which one) where a guy installed the bellowed uppipes already assembled and bolted to the Y. Any one else done this before with any luck?

The reason I ask is because i bought a set off a guy that were used but supposedly in good condition, the only thing he didnt tell me was that they were so rusted theres no chance in hell the threads can be worth a damn if i take them apart. I'm sure with enough brake fluid and kroil i could get them apart, im just afraid that once I do there wont be any thread left in the collector...

Re: Bellowed up pipe install

The bolts IH uses in the bellowed up-pipes have dimpled threads and typically will not come apart. They are easy to drop in as an assembly if you take the downpipe out. It can be a hassle to get the downpipe out but thats easier than tearing up your up-pipes.

Mathis does it with them all together so it can be done with care.

Re: Bellowed up pipe install

Ok thanks, I guess i should have done some more research before buying used. My down pipes only been on there a year so shouldnt give much issue.

Re: Bellowed up pipe install

Buy a new collector and cut the heads off the old bolts, IMO the uppies would be a PIA if the bolts are already tight when you drop the setup in, your gonna want that little bit of wiggle room

Re: Bellowed up pipe install

So you guys are saying that if the turbo and down pipe are removed, the Y and up-pipes can be bolted together on the bench and lowered in place from the top of the engine bay?

Absolutely. That should get you all of the room you need.

Re: Bellowed up pipe install

Yep they will drop down together. Id leave them a little loose as it will aid in lighning the turbo back up then once the turbo is installed and the clamp tight then tighten the bolts up from under the truck with a bunch of extensions and possiably a swivel.
