I'm new when it comes to the diesel world. I have seen cast iron aftermarket made headers for cummins and duramax but never for the ford. There is a good place that I have been going to for all my header and exhaust needs plus i have seen their work i must say amazing.
I want to do a custom twin turbo with my 6.0 with 2 stock turbos but my question is would the header melt if they use stainless steel. I have looked up the melting point its about 1450 - 1485 depending on what other materials are added and where its bought.
I have a friend that has a 250 with a 7.3 and he says he gts 1450 egt's but he is also pushing 150hp + stock im only going to be running 50+ only thing i tow around is my bike its 350pounds.
So can some of you old diesel guys pick me up on this.
Right now I have 4" downtime with Custom 5" exhaust, Afe stage 2, FASS, and head studs. I'm saving up right now for a ats stage 3 tranny and my dads already built both of my axles. I'm also still stock height and stock tires
twin turbos will add a lot more than 50 horsepower. The headers do not "melt" at 1400 degrees. If they did, a lot of people would be screwed. lol Some guys get up to 1600 degrees.
