Yeah bud, I am sure it would, and it would save you money. Or, you could just get an aftermarket one, like the BD Manifold. You are gonna also want an aftermarket exhaust system, and then you can really help out your EGT's.

They are heavier duty and flow better. Also the stock ones can crack when you begin adding more fuel (heat) than stock settings. ATS also makes an aftermarket manifold.

as long as the metal can handle 1500F I dont see a problem.

one thing that has always had my mind about the manifold is the pipes are not the same length. I figured if they were the same length that would put the exhaust pulses more even and may help spooling. . .in modded trucks with big turbos.
