Due to cost I would stay with stock. I dont belive they help until your over 400hp. I'll sell you a stock one.

:iagree: I don't see any reason for aftermarket exhaust manifold till you making big power or this going to track runner truck where its either WOT or idle...

For stock one call your local Frieghtliner dealer with engine# I bought one 4-5 yrs ago for $175,then grind all the slag/imperfections(help remove hot spots) from the casting, since then I've put 500k plus on this manifold.:2cents:

Geno's has ATS for 470.25 three piece and a BD three piece for 508.25 these are pulse flow this helps to spool up the turbocharger faster. good luck
