    Your truck has got to be loud as sin... I am curious to see what the DTLTs do to the sound profile of my truck.

    Not all of them and its not air cooled, it uses a method called thermal siphoning where warm engine coolant cools hot engine oil, its alright but its not the best method in this situation. Its most favorable situation is cold starts.

    I pulled the factory one off and sold it. Let me ask you a simple question. Have you ever seen a race car with a oil cooler like the ones on our motors?

    Nope. They are not as efficient as an air to air oil cooler. As a matter of fact, my Setrab cooler is off of a Ferrari race car. :cool:

    They simply transfer heat back and forth between the two. I don't want that heat transfer going back and forth on my performance build because it will just keep things hot.

    Thus the upgrade to remove that saturation/soak between the hot engine coolant and hot oil, by installing an air to air cooler.

    Upgraded with this.

    Not a problem my friend. Another way to look at it since you are turbocharged cooling engine oil is top priority for prolonged turbo life (and engine life) meaning protecting the seals, shaft, turbo wheel, oil lines, etc from high egt's and hot oil.

    Actually the long tubes give more low end torque than the shortys but but mostly if used with the cats for the back-pressure. The shortys are better for top end horsepower.

    I havent had either but I prefer the TRD SC because its more compact and gives better low end power. One day I plan to go single or twin turbo with the TRD SC unit. And a built bottom end of course.. soon as my brother returns my truck ill post pics of current mods..

    Yeah no. Check the graph above. Shortys help exhaust scavenging while long tubes do not.

    Ummm....both improve scavenging over the oem manifolds but at different points due to limits of there design.

    Yes I know. I should have said low RPM.

    Not strictly true, it depends on how the header is tuned. Typically a smaller tube with longer diameter will give more low-end torque than a larger short tube. But that's not always the case, it depends on where your runner lengths (primary and collector) lay relative to pulse wavelengths at a given RPM.

    There are a lot of theory and equations out there, but no single one seems correct and at some point each falls apart

    In the case of the 4.0 using the options available there is a power loss until 3000ish rpm.
