So I’ve been contemplating whether or not to take the leap of faith and get a 2nd gen swap going for my truck. Comparing this to the normal drop in turbos it seems a little more expensive but worth the investment for the longevity of the motor. In reason I’m just wanting more power but not enough where I need to be worried if I’m going to break something everytime I run it hard. The swaps make the classic sound of a Cummins come alive and the often fart rattle can of the stock manifold is displeasing. So any input on this is greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Depending on choice of turbo, you might be paying only for sound, how much is the sound worth to you? No one can really answer that.

2g swaps are more for sound or ease of going to compounds or bigger singles.

I’ve posted this earlier but as far as sound, the second gen swap also reduces that annoying drone at 2200ish rpm under load.

they won't help performance wise, but they do sound better. It will set you up if you ever want to run compounds or a large turbo later down the road. So it really depends on what your future plans are and/or if the sound the worth the money to you.

I've read also that it helps with EGTs. Especially when you upgrade to a good manifold.

Nope. A good aftermarket 3rd gen manifold flows just as well.
