Manifold vs Header

Truck has a serious exhaust leak. Up pipes are gone, and looks like the manifold, at least on the passenger side has some issues. Truck has 142,xxx on it, and I was thinking, since the manifolds are going to come off, and get replaced, why not look at some new headers.

Anyone have any ideas on a good header for the 7.3? Will they make a difference on a turbo diesel?


'03 7.3 - Stock!

their isnt too many places that make headers for our trucks. which in turn makes them extremely expensive. atleast 1k
better off just getting stock replacement manifolds, unless your making big power.

bd diesel just released their new version of bellowed up pipes, little cheaper than international up pipes.

I wouldn't buy headers unless it was a full out race truck. 1k is a, massive amount to spend on headers. Id do the bellowed up pipes and be rest assured you'll never leak again
