Default Rudy's manifolds and uppipes

Anyone running the Rudy's manifolds and uppipes. I see you can pick them up for a little over 500, any reviews on them yet?

Wouldn't be my choice but they sell plenty of em. There are better options but you pay for them.

I have not delt with the manifolds but I know there up pipes are junk. When bolting up they are twisted and you have to use the bolts to pull them tight. Also the welds are crappy looking and the gaskets are crap. Rudys seems to be taking American made products and have them copied in China.

I have also heard up pipes are not very well built, thinner wall and cheap bellows.

IMO

j-u-n-k

Wait and save up a little longer and buy better products. Your truck will be better for it.

Where is that thread that made Dan go back in his cave where he got called out for where his manifolds came from?
Found it.

I've looked at his a lot too. I like his log headers. Just worried about prolong use of them on a dd. I like his cast flow design.

What's the preferred model of his cast manifolds and uppipes?
