Most people do it for the re-assurance of lower egt's. That is the main benefit. 150-200 drop in EGT's. Also it produces a few extra hp but not that much. Most definitely worth it just for the peace of mind!

I just youtubed a video of one and man it does sound more like and Powerstroke. It doesn't screetch it just rumbles. Look it up type in duramax diamond eye and the title will read something about LBZ something another with only the one page of results.

Warrenty rarely get voided, claims just get denied
the downpipe is worth it and does make the truck rap a little more

the bs manifold is not worth it if it really bugs you you can get some manifolds from RDL.

I installed the BD manifold last year when I installed my Banks Techni-cooler. Had the fender well open so it made it a lot easier. Not as much stuff in the way. One thing that is nice is that it gives you a port for your EGT guage sensor. I coated my manifold to help decrease the under hood temps. It was about a 3 out of 5 install. Make sure you order new gaskets also. They don't come with it. Make sure to use anti seize also! I'm happy with the install and now I can monitor my EGT's. I had no idea the exhaust got that hot when you floored it!!!
