Downpipe questions, easiest way to access the clamp?

When I removed my DPF. I noticed my down pipe was ďlooseĒ it would freely wiggle around, and now I notice exhaust fumes in the truck, and to put my mind to ease I want to see why that down pipe is loose.

Do I have to remove the intake manifold to access the clamp? Or is it possible to access it from the bottom?

I have no problem removing the upper intake if thatís what I need to do. Iíve looked online and can not find a definite answer

During removal of the down pipe, they mention removing the right hand fender splash shield.



Here is the installation instructions off the Ford Workshop DVD.

Thanks for that. I found that on all data also, I just donít see how youíd get to the upper up pipe clamp which isnít a big deal now. I removed the wheel liner and found that it was the band clamp since this seems like a piece down pipe. I tightened that clamp and it doesnít move now.

Only issue Iím having now is when Iím at about 27PSI Iíd boost i hear a hissing sound from somewhere in the motor.

Truck never boosted that high before so I never heard it before this. I donít see soot deposits anywhere on the up pipes so I donít think itís them leaking. Are there common areas for boost leaks on these trucks? I see most of the intercooler pipes and snap together.

The plastic cold side intercooler pipes are extremely notorious for cracking/blowing apart with age.
