Cracked y-pipe...mechanic (not dealer) in Tacoma/Seattle?

Well, while attempting to remove my downpipe to access the EGR cooler flange, I believe I've cracked my y-pipe bellows. I have all the symptoms...exhaust in cab, whistle under hood, low boost, high EGT, etc...

Anyway, it's out of warranty, and I'm not going to take it to a dealer, so does anyone know of a good performance shop around the Tacoma area I caould take it to? While they're replacing the y-pipe, I'd like them to install a delete on something else that's under there as well...

Got a coolant smell when towing problem (again) and hoping removing something will keep it from happening if it hasn't already ruined the headgaskets again (already had new headgaskets 30k ago).

Anyway, I've got to keep this truck for a while, so just want to find a reliable mod-friendly mechanic who knows the 6.0 problems and has the experience to fix them.

Thanks in advance.

I learned a little trick for the 6 liter Y pipe. After removal it twangs and doesnt fit the same. I found once the clamp is around the rear of the turbo, if you take a long 2 inch pipe and bang on the clamp it will usually go back into place. Sometimes you may need to loosen the flange bolts at the manifold but only as a last resort. Its worth a try.

Go to Stans Custom Headers in Auburn or the Power shop in Enumclaw. Stans does exhaust work and the Power Shop can do everything that you want. They did my Banks upgrades and are reasonably priced.
