While it's apart

This week, I am getting the egr delete done, while the guy is at it, do guys think the headers from outlaw diesel would be any benefit? My assumption is they do wonders for gassers, so would the same thinking apply here. He said he would install them for another 150 bucks labor.

How much are they?
From what I have read the 6.0 has more issues with the stock intake system than the exhaust manifolds.....you would probably see better results with a gogo intake .

Headers are not the best cost-to-benifit upgrade you can make to the 6.0L. And I've yet to see anything concrete that they will give you any noticable benifit at all. I would suggest wrapping that cash into either more bullet-proofing upgrades (i.e. ELC swap, Coolant filter, etc.) or a tuner.

The headers don't do as much for diesels, because as a gasser is attempting to dump pressure as soon as it can, a turbo diesel needs that pressure to spin up the turbo. Going to bigger headers with a stock to modest build defeats that purpose.

I have done the elc swap( what a pain that was) the banjo bolts and the fpr spring. I have a livewire with matts tunes waiting. I just thought that since breathing better is the name of the game, this would be a neat add on. I am eyeballing the gogo intake. But I think there may be some hidden computer compatability issues with it. Certain plug ins are deleted and things like that. The more I get to looking into things, a stud and gasket kit are becoming more thought about.
