Bellowed pipes. For the Super Duty's, their anywhere from $400-$500. Check out Diesel Orings' site or Riff Raff diesel. I'd say their the cheapest. Or you could always buy the donut gaskets but why not spend the little extra money to fix it permanently while it's all apart..

Doing just donuts is ok. I'm just saying if it was up to me I'd fix it permanently with bellowed pipes since its a bitch to take apart/re-install (from what I hear). Hope it works out for ya

With the bellowed up-pipes you get all new parts. New casting up at the turbo and that means that you don't need to worry about breaking bolts off when you disassemble what you have. There is also the risk that your uppipes are shot so new gaskets is not enough.

Can you afford not to use the bellowed uppies?

Most up pipe leaks I see anymore have up pipe damage so its hard to get them to get a good seal again.
