exhaust manifold gaskets?

My 6.0 since I bought it has a light tapping on the drivers side under load. I replaced the injectors which it needed and its still there. Truck runs amazing and has tons of power! I had a 06 150 that had the same noise and it was a manifold gasket. so jw would it possibly be that?

I had the same problem on mine and after looking around the manifolds I saw some soot blow by around the drivers side and found a hairline crack on the rear of the passenger side. Planning to do new gaskets and manifold this week, I will post if that fixes my issues. Hope it will help my turbo spool up time as well!

It could be. Have the exhaust manifolds been off? I'm guessing yes based on your sig. If so, did you install gaskets? Basic questions, I know. But I've learned to never assume when troubleshooting.

After replacing my pass. side it seemed to not have a gasket at all from the factory! Looked to just be a metal/metal seal. Seemed odd and maybe the original gaskets deteriorated away, but I installed a dual layer metal gasket with the new header so when I get the rest of the engine together I will have a better idea if that fixed it. I guess this doesn't help the original question so much but if ford never put gaskets on there I'd say a leak is inevitable!

The 6.0 comes without exhaust manifold gaskets, but you should install them if you remove the manifolds.

Haha ok thanks for clearing that up I thought I was crazy for a minute! I cleans the head mating surface and was down to almost polished metal and saw no gasket, glad I know now! Thanks
