    Looking for a Name of ? or where to get an after market 2-piece exhaust manifold for an '04 cummins turbo Diesel in the Dodge p/u's .......

    Apparently this is quite an issue with all these 5.9L engines (all years too) .... they crack due to size/length and when you are warming up (especially when really cold) you get huge amounts of stinky diesel exhaust smell in the Cab until the engine is up to temp ..... any Help is appreciated ..... cheers

    Google stainlessdiesel or steedspeed. The 2 and 3 peice cast iron ones will crack to. Its a few bucks more but its worth it. in the long run.
