    I'm going to be putting a banks turbo kit on a 6.2 here pretty soon would it be a good idea to switch out the other header for one of the humvee headers, just wondering if the crossover pipe will need to be remade or not, also if the performance gain would be the extra cost.

    The crossover pipe in the Banks kit is designed to bolt up to the stock manifold. Switching to a Hummer manifold would mean modifying the crossover pipe. Plus, I don't think you'd see any performance gains at all in a turbo engine.

    I believe Hummer headers are really only useful on an n/a engine.
