had mine done, and manifold........... figured while it was torn down go for it....... since I put a stage I cam and valvetrain and chromoley rods..... running pretty good for my set up..... couldn't hurt but like mentioned, could be pricey. I see trucks running 500+hp with out it being done...so you decide.....

In most boosted applications unless you are trying to scratch every last horsepower out of it it just isn't worth it. It's much easier and cheaper just to run a couple more pounds of boost.
