my little build

want to do studs to ensure reliability. so gonna spend an extra few bucks to open up the flow. bought a set of 6.0 exhaust manifolds since they flow better than the stock 6.4.


then found a set of coated for a little more so ill probably go with these.


got lucky and found matching elite up pipes.


undecided or if i can afford to do turbos and wastegate. need to order some studs, gaskets/hardware etc. intake mani on the way.

Cool! It will be a real good way to get to know some of the parts that are hard to see and get to.

I was looking into the RCD mani's and elite up pipes. Or the steed speed ones.
Im sure they are a fair bit more $ than the 6.0 though.

Having a lift or access to one would be nice!!

If I had access to a lift I would be more broke than I already am... But my truck would be awesome! Good luck with all the changes. Let us know how much the manifolds and up pipes change things.

Looks like a nice build. It is similar to the build i will be doing. I will probably go with the same intake manifold you went with. I am excited to see the difference the intake manifold, exhaust manifold and up pipes make on your truck.
