    I'm buying a factory 6.5L exhaust from another member and the only thing holding up the shipping is trouble removing the drivers side exh manifold. Isn't that manifold actually the same as one of the 6.2 NA factory manifolds? If I don't need it to complete the kit for my 6.2 I won't have him ship it to save weight.

    Yes, the passenger side manifold is the same, no need to remove it.

    But, i would get rid of the stock downpipe and crossover. As you can see, that downpipe, like the rest of them, looks like it was run over by a forklift at the factory, and it flows like crap. The flowmaster downpipe and crossover combo is only ~$110 from Summit Racing, and is a BIG improvement over that stock junk. Dont even have him ship the stock crossover and dp, they belong in the garbage.

    So the turbo on a 6.5 runs off of only one bank of cylinders? :confused:

    No, if you look at the pass manifold it has what looks like the outlet for the normal NA manifold, but its actually the inlet for the driver side cross over pipe. The outlet goes into the turbo on top of the pass side manifold. Then the outlet from the turbo goes to the down pipe and out the exhaust.
