Those are for the 6.0 trucks, not the 7.3...

There are aftermarket manifolds for our trucks, but I doubt you will see any performance gain from them. They do allow you to really crank down on your Boots so you dont have leaks, without crushing the cheap stockers...

I think WOP makes a set too...

Wonder which one performs better. The CFM one looks better to me.

The CFM one will not do one thing... Its overpriced Eye candy...

The Beans ones are a bit of an upgrade for a OBS or Early 99 guys as far as airflow, but otherwise they only allow you to really crank down on the clamps.


If your that into the CFM one, mod your stocker like this picture, then extend your hot side IC pipe and add a Vband flange... Same crap for about $25 bucks for the V band flange...

What exactly did you all do to it? I haven't looked at the stock one too closely to know what the difference is between stock and this one sorry.

The red one is from a few years ago, I just cut the compressor side off and then cleaned it up

I also ported it a bit, but doubt I got 10 grams of material out of it...

Dont mind the blue arrow, I must have done that for someone asking about the IAH delete...
