Haven't tried to price a stock one......I just assumed I would eventually see it crack again.

CALL FREIGHTLINER bought one about 3-4 years ago $175.00(OEM Manifold) Have Engine# handy. Use a small grinder to remove any casting slag that causes hot spots to help prevent cracks.

Whats the deal with freightliner and cummins ??? Heard that a couple times but never asked --> as long as you give them engine number they don't check what vehicle its out of and you can get the parts cheaper ?? burb31 - heard of guys patching the manifold if the crack is small enough ......... but you can find them on CF from $50-$100. Shipping may hurt though so then that freightliner deal would be cool.

I put an ATS "Pulseflow" manifold mine a few months ago when i replaced the turbo. ATS gave me a discounted price on the package which included Aurora 3000 Turbo, Pulseflow Manifold & installation kit w/gaskets... ATS manifolds carry a 5yr./500,000mile replacment warranty & 3yr/150,000mile on There Turbos

I still have my old manifold which is perfect condition if you are interested PM me

Freightliner uses the 5.9 in medium duty applications,but can't look up by applications i.e. 99 dodge 3/4 ton,but with engine # they usually stock most parts needed same with Cummins they can't look-up by truck make/model but engine # (posted on the driver side of front cover) save bunch of money over dodge. Cummins also sells to Freightliner cheaper than to retail customers so most times you can save money buying through Freightliner.
