I had a little accident today when tapping a hole in my exhaust manifold. Now time to replce it. A OEM one from Dodge will run me around $200. I looked into aftermarket ones and that would run me $450+. Do you really get that much benfit from doing a aftermarket exhaust manifold? Trying to figure out which one I should order.

wow...I am amazed the OEM ones are that cheap!

I would say that if you plan on modifying down the road, go ahead and get an aftermarket one. Most already have a threaded hole for a Pyro - just so you don't make the same mistake twice!

With the stock turbo you'll see little/no difference but from what I hear, an aftermarket manifold eliminates considerable lag with a bigger turbo....

What year truck do you have? I have one with 36k on it that I'll sell you for 50 bucks. It is from my 06.

I have a early 04, so yours is diffrent. As of now I have edge juice w/attitude, exhaust, intake, methanaol injection. Next item was going to be a lift pump and then doing a set of injectors here in the next few weeks. I dont have a problem spending the money on the manifold, but just dont want it to be waste money if it wont help me out.

They are way worth it, even on a stock turbo. Since your thinking of injectors, I would go ahead and do it, it will help with keeping the egt's down and will help even the stock turbo to spool a little faster.

Thanks for the replies. I am going to go ahead and order up a BD manifold. Found it for $410.

I forgot to mention that they will work with you on their pricing, I just ordered a new HTT turbo from him at a crazy low price. Good Luck Man
