The only thing I’ve seen from banks for the 6.5 is an expensive exhaust system. Heath’s turbo-master is working great for me and I will be getting his 2.0 chip soon. Opening the exhaust is important, but you can probably find a local muffler shop to set you up for a fraction of the cost of the kits I’ve seen on the internet. If you haven’t already, relocate the PMD/FSM before modification, I moved mine into the grill Where its been working great 25 bucks in intake manifold gaskets and 5 bucks for the heat shrink, wire and solder.
Only a bigrig exhaust shop would have the need for the big mandrels and exhaust pipe. The down pipe can be made out of a 3" x ?" collector mig welded onto the mandrel bent pipe, unless you can flange it yourself. From the down pipe back You could get 5", 6", 8".
I'm using 3" pipe and I'm already wondering if 4" wouldn't be better.
I have dealt with several vendors and have had good luck with all. I really like Heath, Bill is very willing to share his wealth of knowlege and sells good stuff and stands behind his product. I WILL buy more things from Heath.
