Intake advice?

Which after market intake manifold would you recommend where I don't have to do a fuel bowl delete. Shimming the bowl up is no big deal.

Thanks in advance...

River City Diesel has a nice ported manifold. I assume you don't have to do a fuel bowl delete to run it. Is a fuel bowl delete required with Elite's manifold?

I don't think so as most offer stages but it seems stage 2 where they remove that bend where the fuel bowl goes does require a fuel bowl delete.

I've never even heard of a fuel bowl delete or why would someone want to do this. In guess mainly for stage 2 intake manifolds..

Thanks for the info on RCD

Removing the fuel bowl allows you to pump directly from the LPFP to the HPFP. Elite makes a kit and I believe Maryland Performance Diesel does as well.

Fuel bowl deletes don't do much for stock fuel/stock turbos other than cleaning up the engine bay and you remove one more thing that could cause problems.

If you do a LP fuel system upgrade such as AD, FASS, Fuel Lab, or some custom ones, you don't need the filter in the fuel bowl so you either have to leave the bowl empty or run a filter in the bowl and change it routinely.

If you add fuel (dual fuelers, modded K16), the fuel bowl can become a restriction on the system and the HPFP(s) might starve for fuel at WOT.

If you upgrade your turbos, some of them don't fit without the fuel bowl being deleted.

Midwest diesel also offers ported intakes (I believe they have 3 stages). A guy on here ported my intake manifold for me.

I have a stage 1 with pipe plugs threaded directly into the manifold. Not impressed.
Go with a manifold that has bungs tig welded into the manifold & uses ORB plugs. Once you decide on a particular manifold try & get some fed back on it from actual users, a poor welding job can warp the manifold runners.

Good point, I've learned my lesson with 6.4 after-market parts warping.

Any ideas who has one like that?

The guy that did mine is a member on here. He has a jig that he bolts the manifold to and welds it so that it doesn't warp. He also has a reasonable price. PM me if your interested in his info. I also have pics.
