Update time since I hate when someone doesn't tell what/how they found/fixed an issue!




Never heard the usual sounds I'm used to hearing from an exhaust manifold/header leak from a gasser! Only the louder noise under hood and in cab. More like a low pitch rumble if anything. Lost a few mpg, and low RPM power also. Kept looking at manifold for cracks and saw lines but kept thinking I'd surely hear a manifold leak if it was cracked. Wrong! Picture are of one of many cracks. Thankfully the turbo wasn't cracked from it. You could feel air blowing out of that crack but couldn't hear it. Actually made a whistling noise if I just hooked truck to my 5er in gear idling, but I could never figure out where the sound came from. Only saw crack after pulling into driveway, popping hood to check PS fluid and heard a loud PING from exhaust cooling down. Noticed tinkling on cool-down a couple years ago that it never did before. Evidently manifold has been cracked all that time. Anyway, Thanks to Maxtorq for supplying me with a new Cummins manifold, bolts, gaskets, and expert advice! I could have used the original bolts but decided not to.
Truck is much quieter in the cab now, along with restored low RPM power. Have to see about the MPG over time. Also smells a lot better in the cab. I had grown to think the smell was just normal from the beast.

Pretty common with the HY turbo.

Problems not the manifold. It's the little turbo. 56mm compressor as opposed to the 58 in the HX. IMO anyway. The HY was the solution to bottom end spool. So it suffers in the air department when it comes to providing adequate air when towing. So when the manifold warps gaskets start to fail and then the end result is what you see above .

Good Post, but what manifold did you go with? or did I miss that. Cummins is 65 miles to you...Hall St. location?
