Re: anyone making aftermarket exhaust manifold

I dont think you would see a large enough gain unless you had some serious fuel going through them. I think money could be better spent elsewhere but they do look bad a$$ IMO. At least the steed speeds do anyways.

Re: anyone making aftermarket exhaust manifold

i checked into that steed speed and they have crazy numbers posted a little hard to believe and if they are true prolly on a far from stock truck that always turns me away when they do stuff like that not sure why heh

Re: anyone making aftermarket exhaust manifold

Theres a nice gain of 250 ft lbs torque and 92 hp at 1900 rpms. Power is much higher than stock manifolds right across the power band.



thats what they have listed for there manifolds

Re: anyone making aftermarket exhaust manifold

My boss has a set of the Steed Speed manifolds on his 6.4 and he said spool up isn't an issue any more, the biggest problem was fabbing up up-pipes

I got ya man. I wasn't poking fun or anything and I apologize if it seemed that way. I was just presuming you were really liking your porting job was all. Thanks for the link though. I had seen those and those would be a much more affordable option for sure but I really think the Steed Speeds have it for looks.

That was on a 6.4 and not a 6.0
