want to do studs to ensure reliability. so gonna spend an extra few bucks to open up the flow. bought a set of 6.0 exhaust manifolds since they flow better than the stock 6.4.


then found a set of coated for a little more so ill probably go with these.


got lucky and found matching elite up pipes.


undecided or if i can afford to do turbos and wastegate. need to order some studs, gaskets/hardware etc. intake mani on the way.

I was looking into the RCD mani's and elite up pipes. Or the steed speed ones.
Im sure they are a fair bit more $ than the 6.0 though.

Having a lift or access to one would be nice!!

Looks like a nice build. It is similar to the build i will be doing. I will probably go with the same intake manifold you went with. I am excited to see the difference the intake manifold, exhaust manifold and up pipes make on your truck. :D

I'm with you but I always try to figure out where to draw the line. Do I stick close to 600? OR try to play with the mid 700 mark?? I go back and forth every day.

If you want to stay in the reliability area stay close to 600HP. Mid 700 mark is going to cause more issues. Dont get me wrong there are some strong reliable trucks, but they wont be reliable for 300k miles.
