    You can just replace the cracked section if you want. I’ve never had a a fancy manifold. I replaced one back in 2002 or so and am about to fix another after Christmas. This 13 glider that I just bought is my 6th series 60.

    So an sdp cat owner is crapping on a 12.7 Detroit thread? I recently talked to a guy that has 10 large car 389’s with SDP engines he bought new. He went to gliders after that debacle. Nobody will give him more that scrap value for those 08 Pete’s either.

    Just buy a aftermarket one piece manifold, despite all the hype from one brand to the next they are all better than factory.

    That said I drive a 1999 with 1.7 million miles, looks new , just passed a level one and got a sticker. 12.7 at 600 HP.
    Come Monday I stay on paper logs. Guess I'll continue to suffer with it.

    1968, 1988 or 2018 don't matter. They're all junk when you don't look after them.

    I want to see the door plate. I am not saying they didn't make an 08 only I have never seen one. And if Mr topshelf doesn't know the difference in a 379 and 389 odds are ............... he don't own it or even drive it
