ENded up going with the DPS 2 piece. It's a very very nice piece. Definitely high quality and given it's the cheapest aftermarket manifold out there (other than the knock off ebay ones), I feel like it's a steal. I used stainless studs and nuts from purediesel power and a sure glad I did. I don't see how you can get the turbo on and off separately and turbo plus manifold is so damn heavy, it would be a huge PITA to try and use traditional bolts! I soaked all the old bolts in aero kroil for a week and sure glad I did. No bolts broke but dang, they were really close and the #1 cylinder holes needed some thread repair the old manifold was so warped!
Didn't notice any driveability changes. My Egts are never an issue. Maybe a little better boost, and less noise now that there is no leak!
