There's a few running their y-pipe....but haven't heard of anyone running their headers. Don't think you're gonna get any good feedback on their headers. Its because headers don't work well compared to log style manifolds on a diesel. They'll warp and crack due to the high egts that a diesel sees compared to a gas vwhicle.. Guys have experienced issues when trying headers.

I've heard nothing but good things about their y-pipes.

Curious, do their Y-pipes already come with a bend that you need in them to fit most regulated return systems?

Nope... But most RR kits use banjo fittings instead of 90* fittings so it probably doesn't matter.

I run their y-pipes and from my experience with others they are the best ones out there. Not having bellows, but instead using slip fit is nice, and the way the pipes come together at the collector is very nice. I have 90 degree fitts for the regulated return and don't have any issues with the y-pipe clearance.

As far as the headers go, I have tried some in the past and wasn't too impressed, I how ever do plan on trying out a set with the y-pipe. Problems I had with one set of headers was getting them to seal tight to the heads, but I have a fix for that, so I will give them another try. One of the aftermarket manifolds I would like to try would be the ones made by BD, since they are log type. I like the factory log type for street since they spool turbos better, the ones I want to try are going to be for strip so they are going to be tubed type.

I'll be using the BD manifolds in my build as well. I like how they are pre drilled for EGT probes.

Been running the BD manifolds for 500 miles so far. No complaints yet!
