:helpalright guys heres the dilema...I got a SC stage IV with a lift pump and a dsp5 switch with a really hot tune on the way..i plan on running a stock motor for a while but i wana know if the aftermarket exhaust manifold for the drivers side is somethin i need and if it is how hard is it to install myself?

my next question is if i will need a new downpipe as well?
and what are your thoughts about getting nick at duramaxtuner for the dsp5?

thanks for the input

Nick is a very good option for EFI tunning, I would skip the Exhaust manifold, and go straight to the downpipe :)

Ya a down pipe is the first thing you should go with. The manifold will help aswell so you should look into both.

When I put in my Banks Techni-cooler last year ( had it for almost 2 yrs before installing it) I installed a BD exhaust manifold on the drivers side. Had the manifold coated to reduce heat. The nice thing about the new manifold is it gives you an EGT port for your sensor. The install is about a 3 out of 5 for difficulty.
