Anyone know where I can get a Y pipe for a 98 3L v6 Ranger? I've checked the junkyard and online and haven't had any success. I ran over a rock and it crushed one side completely shut. I don't really have the means to cut and weld a new piece of tube on and the stuff I have found online either doesn't exactly match my truck or doesn't specify clearly enough if it will fit on my truck and I'd like to avoid having to pay return shipping. Local auto part stores don't have it either and can't order it for some reason. Thanks

That particular Y-pipe is dicey. Consult a local exhaust shop.

In your conversation with an exhaust shop manager bring up the topic of 409 stainless & their ability to both supply it & weld it properly.

I have one from an 03 I won’t be using.

Free, but you have to pull it. I don’t care about broken bolts in the manifolds... so put some arm into it if needed.

Edit: I’m gonna break your heart.... I’m In Alabam and you’re in California..
