My truck recently just started a slight squealing sound when the exhaust brake kicks on when warming up. When warmed up it goes away. At 190,000mi I'm pretty sure either the manifold gasket(s) are done, or the manifold is cracked somewhere or something? Haven't stuck my head in there yet. Anyways, does anybody know if the CA Smog techs are likely to know if I put a 2 piece manifold on? Any Cali deleted trucks out there with an aftermarket manifold? Assuming most techs are dipzhits, would they even look at it, I mean it's not as obvious as a pair of long tube headers on a V8. If I retained the head shield, and put on like an ATS 2 piece pulse manifold, it would look pretty stock, right? Other than being new looking, how the hell would the tech know the difference? Any help is always much appreciated!
