New 6.4l manual dually truck owner

Hey guys i just got a new 2008 f350 reg cab dually with 6.4l in it and its my first diesel, so i have done a ton of reading and research associated with this truck and it tows like no other. i am an engineer for a diesel engine company and i wont mention who for conflict of interest. But i have a couple of questions to do with a manual (zf-6 trans)

is there a company that makes a turbo back 5" that will fit a manual?

do i have to pull the cab to do the downpipe?

anyone have any recommendations for the manual trans trucks?

when i do the egr delete kit can i just take the elbow valve off and replace it?

Is it possible to do egr delete, head gaskets, studs without pulling the cab?
who has done it?

i plan on doing egr and dpf delete all at once and im going to purchase a spartan tuner for it. and guys with the manual out here please help is needed.

There is no Turbo back 5" kit for auto or manual. There simply isn't enough room and the only purpose for 5" after the tranny crossmember like all 5" kits do is for sound. You can get a 4" downpipe though which will help a lot since the stock is double walled and also crimped. You have to cut the stock downpipe to get it out. Just a good metal blade and sawzall is what you need for that. The aftermarket will be two piece for ease of installation.

I have seen studs done cab on one at a time, but I wouldn't recommend it unless your truck was brand new or low mileage (<5000 miles). I want to think I have seen a thread of someone doing gaskets cab on but I may be wrong.

EGR delete is relatively straight forward and can be done cab on, just remove driver's wheel/tire and fender well liner. Just a time consuming job

You need to contact Sean. (powerstroker67). streetdieselperformance.com is his website. A lot of vendors sell his products because of the quality.

Regarding manual trans

I did a cat and dpf delete and installed a H&S which I run on mid levels( I am still learning settings). This is a ex cab and long bed and it has become a beast. Most everything I drive is a manual trans and I know about clutches, I've replaced a few. By myself, not by hiring it done. There is nothing wrong with my clutch but if I push the go pedal in high gear, (not overdrive, mind you) the clutch will start to slip. If I held it down until I built max boost I think the cab would be filled with smoke, not really but the clutch would be smoking. You are running a heavier chassis than I am so beware that your clutch has limits and this engine can easily exceed those limits.
I am afraid an icy road and this amount of torque would be a disaster. I have yet to try it and I am not looking forward to it. Others who have experienced it might enlighten us. I almost forgot, yes mine is a 4x4, I don't think an icy road would be possible at all without four wheel drive.
