Y-pipe installed pic heavy
 
Once I climbed under the truck and actually saw the stock y-pipe and ran my hands down it I was completely motivated to get rid of that thing. Unbelievable that they would crush a pipe like that. Once I got it home I measured the 2.5" pipe at the start of the crush its about 1.5" and gets down to 1" at the collection point. My exhaust guy was blown away by it and said it would increase my flow by at least 40% with the new y-pipe. With my fastman TB , CAI and 14" mufflex this was surely the missing link to bring it all together. I dont have any real numbers to put to it but there is no way anyone can convince me this isnt a must do. And for $140 parts and labor it was way worth it. Updates to come as I get more drive time with it.

Lookin good man! The stock piping is pretty bad.

That stock y-pipe is pretty wicked on the 4th gen. I took a look at the one on my 3rd gen and it looks even worse!! Which is precisely why it will be replaced when I do my exhaust next month.

Went outside and look at the factory Y-pipe on mytruck, what joke. Went on ebay and bought a Y-pipe for 27.36 http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/?cmd=ViewItem&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649&item=30055 5327395&sspagename=STRK%3AMEWAX%3AIT

Dodge could designed a better exhaust. Thanks FDBDW for the tip.

The stock y on these trucks is an absolute embarrassment.
