check out www.grpipes.com and www.blackclouddiesel.com both of these site have stacks but they might be over $800.00, I dont know. Check out ebay, they usually have some used stacks, just the stack though, not the kit. With a 5" flex pipe, a 90* elbow or two, and a piece of 4"x6" rectangle tubing or 6"x6" square tubing about 5' long you can build you own.

I know Silverline makes a nice stack kit .... I am not a fan of twin stacks on a Dodge ...... they only have one exhaust manifold ... why add back pressure if you dont have to?

No turbo diesel (I know, I know banks parallel twins do but those are are rare) has two exhaust outlets, But dual miter cuts look good. If you do a single stack make it offset, just go straight up from the exhaust.

I'd say a GSK would help. Its tough, you can't do to much or that tranny will slip. If it worn't for that then I'd say some injectors too, but you should upgrade the tranny first. If it were me I'd be looking into a torque converter.

well that was my thinkin. the tranny got to be next. but should i look into a whole tranny built or just replace certain things. honsetly i dont know CRAP bout trannies(not transvestites) so i dont know whats good or whats bad in the aftermarket world. so oppions on tranny stuff would be awsome

Better torque converter, shift kit, and pack some extra friction steels into the clutch packs usually 2 per pack is all that fits. I would start there but if you have the cash billet shafts too.

97' 2500 ECLB, Tranny, Guages, 3gsk, DDP2's, MBRP duals, HT 60/14, KDP tabbed, BHAF, 100plate ff, *wheel cranked......

Stacks

I have a set of grand rocks stacks.. I would be willing to sell them, but shipping would prob. be $$$.. Not to sure.. But they have been on my 02 for a year now..
gettin rid of the 02 so I can spend it on the 97 puller I just bought!

You need at least a torque convertor and a valve body. That will get you by for a long time. Give goerend brothers transmissions a call, they are great guys to deal with and their parts are cheaper than most of the other tranny shops. They will also only sell you what you want or what they think you will need.
A convertor and a valve body can be done by you with basic tools.
