Cool Navistar up pipe upgrade

First post here guys. Lots of great info posted that i've seen.I've been trolling this site for a couple months, and I'm very impressed with the tech and info I've seen. I'm a truck shop manager at a large Ford Dealer in Virginia. I've been working with Diesels for the last 30 years. I use my 2001 F250 7.3 Diesel (bought new) to tow my drag car in a 24' enclosed trailer. I had to replace my leaking up pipes this summer at 47,000 miles. Right after that I read that Navistar had come out with a upgraded bellows setup. I've checked with my local IH dealer on this, and I've been told that there are two kits, the standard and a high torque kit. The high torque kit is like $200 over the standard kit. Has anyone rechearched this? I'm concidering swapping to the GT38R turbo this winter, and I think adding the new style up pipes would be a must at this time. Any toughts?????

Thanks, Mike.........

I believe the correct part number is 1837872C93 for the 99.5+ engines and can be used for OBS trucks with SD conversion.

PDR also makes a nice set of bellowed up pipes as well.

Both kits are around 300 bucks. There isn't a core on the IH pipes. I like the type of bellows PDR uses, however the IH bellows are fine for most people's needs and work MUCH better than stock.

The 38R is a good turbo and if you have it off that would be a good time to install the up-pipes.

You can get the IH pipes right from your local IH dealer, just don't pay list price. I think ITP sells the IH parts as well as a few sponsors here.

I just installed the IH Bellowed up pipes about a month ago. Its a very nice kit and fixed all my leaks! Its well worth the $$$

Get the kit from ITP diesel, its cheaper than you can get it from International.

Oh and here is some good reading..

I have one set of these left at the current price. I reordered today and the price has gone up significantly. Regular customer retail at the IH dealer should be in the $430 range now, my next batch will probably be right at $400 retail. If IH keeps raising the prices I'll have to quit selling them.

I was quoted $519 retail at the local International dealer in town

Thats why your kit is a killer deal

Welcome to the site!!!

Grab the IH kit from ITP Diesel or Black Widow Diesel. You won't be disappointed.

The Garrett Ball Bearing is an awesome upgrade as well. You'll love how much better and more responsive your truck is with that charger.

Just to clarify, as of right now (after shipping the ones Greg ordered), I still have one set at the current price.
