I dunno, we only notice the stress cracks on the exhaust manifold because that's when customers complain. After the turbo outlet not many people are really going to notice. I built a tranny for a dumba$$ with a 2000 1Ton and he was complaining about the motor and how it didn't have power. When I put fluid in I noticed a crack, just to make sure it was diffently a crack all the way threw, I started it up with the hood popped. It let off so much smoke just threw that crack I'm not for sure how he never noticed.Cumminsdude2001 said:normally the stress cracks are on the exhaust manafold itself, not on the elbow. Check the gasket, makes sure all your bolts are tight, don't forget to use never sieze before puting things back together. I have never heard of a leak between the elbow and the back of the turbine housing. Do check for a crack. Look for soot marks and see where its coming from.
