In the shop

Well my truck finally went to the shop for new head gaskets and ARP studs. Can't wait to get it back.

Not a whole lot just downpipe egr delete and clean out the intake manifold. That's really all the budget allows right now I had to do it now because they were leaking so bad. After I get the tranny rebuilt and an RCD tc ill look into getting some more power upgrades. I kinda want to run a little nitrous though.

Yea its a good idea to clean the intake manifold. It would be nice if you could have done a ported intake manifold while its off. I understand the budget thing tho.

Oh trust me I wanted a ported one. Good thing is I can do the next cab off myself for the turbos and intake mani. My buddy and I just didn't want to tackle doing the heads. Probably could have but just decided against it. I have no problem putting an intake mani on though.

Yeah I was going to do 6.0 mani and uppipes but he said it not really needed at my hp level. Plus I don't think anyone has ever put up a concrete hp increase just from those. until they do im holding off

Yea i am debating that also. If i do the 6.0 manifolds it will be more for reliability.

For anyone to get a reliability benefit out of 6.0 manifolds, they would need to be making some big power with a whole of fuel and/or nitrous.
