Up-Pipe Review/Comparsion Link

Been looking for a thread on our forum that gave the comparison/review of the four or five aftermarket 7.3 bellowed replacement up-pipes, but cannot seem to locate it.

Can anyone provide a link? Thanks in advance!

Are the International pipes not made of stainless steel?

Best pipes for the money are the BD stainless up pipes.

Dorman have had a lot of issues again lately. Clreybhas unstalles quite a few dormant lately that were a 1/2 short at the bellows. He had to stretch the bellow out to reach.

The International pipes should be T409 stainless.

I agree here. We haven't had a single issue reported with the BD up-pipes.

Brought my International bellowed pipes by my mechanic last week after I got them along with other stuff I'll have him install. He was impressed with the pipes and that they had the dents where they needed to be. He's seen pipes that don't come with the needed dents that need to be massaged with a hammer to make fit. The ceramic coating option I got also was very clean and and should provide much of the benefit of wrapping them without any of the downsides of wraps.

Thanks for the update, Bronco. I will probably order the International up-pipes also.

Hi.

I thought BD were cheaper but they are $400 and the International can be found for $300 on ebay... Even better, I just got a new set of International from a private seller on ebay for $200!!!

Thanks again for all the info, this thread turned out to be very useful!

Cheers
David

Those prices are well below MAP for genuine International bellowed up-pipes. Are you sure you were not sold Dorman pipes? Looking on eBay, I see a lot of the listings advertising the pipes as International (even including the International part number), but they are not genuine International up-pipes.

Just checked it and guess I got lucky! They were bought at dieselorings.com and are legit

Should be much easier to swap in my van than your trucks

Thanks again for all the info!

Turbo still has to come out.

It's not terribly difficult if you just cut out the old ones.

I could do up pipes In 2-3 hours now instead of 8 lol.

Yes, you did get quite lucky. Sounds as if plans fell through for the seller to install them and he is just trying to get rid of them. Nice find there.

Having the removable doghouse does make it easier.

So I got my up pipes installed. I went with the ceramic coated International pipes from RiffRaff. My wrench-bender said they fit up great and were very easy to install. He's had problems with the Dormans in the past with having clearance and fitment issues sometimes requiring some massaging to install.
