What about header wrap ?

It has been 20 years sense my thermoD classes, But on a turbo system I remember that keeping the exhaust gas temp up was a big deal.

I gasket match ported my intake and exhaust manifolds when I did my last set of heads. I can't say that I necessarily noticed any significant gains but I was able to hit 517 rwhp when 476 had been my previous best, so I guess it was something. I really don't think it's worth the effort on a forced induction engine though. Just MHO.

porting the exhaust manifolds will do little, there is not much to remove.

Here are some headers some companies have made for out 6.0.

SmokerSteve & npccpartsman a71111....

SmokerSteve I am not going down into the port to remove material...on the contrary. I really don't want to change any velocity characteristics.I simply want a larger ledge for any spent exhaust to get caught as it is trying to be sucked back in to the Head (reversion). I opened the ports up on a radius extending about 3/8" to 1/2" into the manifold.The original diameters were 1.312" I hogged just the openings to 1.500. There is plenty sealing area on the manifold flange left, and I could have gone further.To npccpartman I am not port matching as you can see.That is an attempt to improve flow. I am trying to improve the intake fuel/air cleanliness for a more efficient burn, limiting any spent exhaust from being sucked back into the head. And yes I do know this may result in a very small improvement. This is a while I am at it sort of thing as the manifolds were pulled along with the Y pipe because of leaks.Hay a7111.....I already have a source and they were made for a specific use by an OEM for a end user. I have purchase a quantity to support an Anti-Reversion Porting Kit I will be putting together. Pic's are coming.I won,t get my gaskets till monday. And I have to retake the pic's I have... as the resolution was too high to upload. ....

I almost tried the header wrap.Some people say it traps moisture and accelerates rusting. I quess I just wanted to see the effects of the ceramic coat. I also live with in blocks of a shop that turned them around fast at a fair price. They did a very nice job.....

This is known as a pressure difference between the evacuated cylinder and the exhaust manifold. Suction can cause it, but the pressure difference is a stronger influence.

Improving your flow, evacuates the cylinder more efficiently not only improves your cylinder contamination situation, but, will allow a fresher charge to burn more completely, inturn make more power. Turbulent flow restricts power and hinders complete combustion to put it very simple.

Have you touched anything else besides the manifolds?

Exhaust manifold Porting

Hello "385seriesHemi"....It's been a while since I have been on forum. Thanks for the very correct and scientific explaination for my Mod. I have not done anymore Efficiency type mods but fall is coming... I did change the intake from stock to a "Volant" With additional Ram Air scoop that draws from the small cavity between the hood and head light on the drivers side. I guess that is also an efficiency improvement?#$%! I am very pleased with the results of my porting/Super Manifold Seal Mod.. Idle has improved to swiss watch steady.Throttle response is right now. The Turbo is getting all available exhaust pressure..(No Leaks) from the crappy metal to metal exhaust to head mating. The result is better acceleration.I have improved the Oil Filtering with a By-Pass Filter System. I kinda Hybridized..( please excuse my made up words).I used Amsoils Filter cap and Filler cap,but I modified a Parker Hydraulic 3 micron Glass media filter to use as the filter.I pieced together the plumbing and fittings from various souces on the web.I will post pictures under a separate thread and other related info look for "Mother of all By-pass Filters for 6.0".The following is a list of future VE mods I intend in order.
  • Pusher intake manifold.
  • Flowmaster 4" Stainless Exhaust.
  • Reconditioned Injectors with 8 hole extrude honed tips.(135cc flr)
  • Fresh Heads with enlarged exhaust valves/Hard Studs/Black Onyx Gaskets.
Thanks for the interest..I will be more active in the fall..camping now!!

Good job on the manifolds! I know you said you didn't expect much performance improvment but details like this do add up. Now you know one thing that isn't a problem. It's attention to details on stuff like this that make your truck yours.
