    Can you tell me why my coolant container leaks of my duramax 2003 6.6 4×4 I need help please

  2. Juan Guzman on June 18, 2022 at 10:40 pm

    The up pipe passenger side looks different on the website like "stock" with the egr outlet

  3. Nathan Hiemstra on June 18, 2022 at 10:43 pm

    Does PPE make up pipes for these manifolds that are EGR compatible? I live in Cali

  4. Alex Heatwole on June 18, 2022 at 10:44 pm

    Where did you purchase your up pipes?? Wouldnt happen to have a link would ya?

  5. Lorenzo Zo on June 18, 2022 at 10:46 pm

    Love your videos man! I bought a LLY Duramax a year and a half ago and definitely got the upgrade bug! Do you still have a coupon code for PPE? Going to order their manifolds and up pipes here soon.

  6. SPW_711 on June 18, 2022 at 10:49 pm

    Does you code not work anymore on ppe site?

  7. Jim Schweitzer on June 18, 2022 at 10:50 pm

    I’m thinking about installing the PPE exhaust manifolds and up pipes (with EGR). Your web site doesn’t offer the set I need and using the PPE link here in the YouTube video doesn’t recognize the 10% discount (truckmaster).

  8. eric perez on June 18, 2022 at 10:50 pm

    Whats the best tuner for a 2002 gmc duramax?

  9. Nathan Hiemstra on June 18, 2022 at 10:51 pm

    I recently tried to buy the coolant upper and lower silicone hoses with your discount code for PPE and it didn’t work :/

  10. Mark Aszmann on June 18, 2022 at 10:53 pm

    Have you ever considered wrapping your exhaust manifolds and up pipes to Make your Turbo more efficient

  11. Jim Schweitzer on June 18, 2022 at 10:57 pm

    Appreciate all the install videos! I have replaced the down pipe and installed a 4” exhaust and now I am considering the manifolds. I’ve seen the PPE and recently your HSP manifolds. Still deciding which way to go. Cooler EGT and better power is always a plus. Can you explain why only the passenger side exhaust manifold goes to the EGR? Why doesn’t the drivers side… I still run the EGR as I do not want reprogram the computer. Again Thank You!

  12. ktm_braap braap on June 18, 2022 at 10:59 pm

    @truckmaster hey if I do manifolds and up pipes and a 3 inch down pipe with a cold air intake do I need a tune . Or am I good to run it ?

  13. Brannon Frost on June 18, 2022 at 10:59 pm

    Sir, I’ve seen SEVERAL of your videos lately.I can’t thank you enough for the help you’re providing us viewers.I was afraid to do much myself since my experience with diesels is very limited versus gas burners.Thanks to the step by step,in depth details your content gives,I’m now confident I can save money and get to know my truck much better by doing more upgrades in my own shop myself.I appreciate the effort and time you’re obviously taking to help us learn.
    And also,more than all,I salute you for the freedom we enjoy.May GOD bless you and all who help you, especially your wife.

  14. Ronald Babbitt on June 18, 2022 at 10:59 pm

    Excellent thanks 👍 Great informative video again Thanks 🏁

  15. Brannon Frost on June 18, 2022 at 10:59 pm

    Will these up pipes fit a stock LML turbo?I’m seriously considering getting my hands on this kit.

  16. Joe Gelencser on June 18, 2022 at 11:01 pm

    Buddy be honest with people that manifold is 3 times thicker than the stock one so how do you know if the temperature inside there is any different at all thank you and God-bless just consider what you’re showing

  17. Truck Master on June 18, 2022 at 11:02 pm

    Huge thanks to everyone watching the channel! Let me know what you guys think about the new upgrade!

  18. Davis Construction on June 18, 2022 at 11:02 pm

    Code did not work for me.

  19. TurboTerzo on June 18, 2022 at 11:09 pm

    Man if I tried ripping my manifold bolts out like that I’d be into drilling my studs out. Rust belt stuff sucks.

  20. Daniel Warren on June 18, 2022 at 11:10 pm

    Any updates on the manifold/up pipes? Really thinking about them. Just wanna be sure it’s worth it

  21. Jake Rose on June 18, 2022 at 11:10 pm

    They make a stud remover folks! Works like a charm with a half inch breaker bar

  22. hmongwild on June 18, 2022 at 11:10 pm

    Now that summer is over. I notice better gas milage since my egt temp stays way low. Think ima have to pull the trigger and do a full manifold back system. Probly grab a turbo while im at it. Ppe manifold kit are cali legal right?

  23. Louis Rodriguez on June 18, 2022 at 11:11 pm

    What’s the part number for the exhaust manifold and up pipe kit

  24. Beau Smith on June 18, 2022 at 11:12 pm

    So I watched u do the ppe manifolds on the lbz and lp5, was it easier on the lbz?

  25. Ron Anderson on June 18, 2022 at 11:15 pm

    Great video ! have you tried a great penetrating oil that is home made ? Mix pure full synthetic transmission fluid with equal part of acetone, works great !

  26. Eric Curlett on June 18, 2022 at 11:15 pm

    I lost traction 😂 😂 lol

  27. Bobby Rebussini on June 18, 2022 at 11:16 pm

    Love the videos man! what’s the likely hood of snapping one of the bolts off in the turbo? Also just have to say literally anything is better than wd. its not actually penetrant. Free all is the bomb.

  28. Joe B. on June 18, 2022 at 11:17 pm

    So can you do this to a 2017+Duramax?

  29. David Dyer on June 18, 2022 at 11:18 pm

    have you ever used dmax store manifolds and up pipes? and if so what you think?

  30. Ronald Babbitt on June 18, 2022 at 11:19 pm

    Man I cannot put into words how much I want to do All lmm builds you have done 👍 Starting with the HSP Intake bundle. PVC added 110 to 650 bundle on the way. For you, basic, wish me luck and Great informative video’s They are awesome!

  31. Kamo on June 18, 2022 at 11:21 pm

    Do you have the link for the up pipe without the egr pipe? Only ppe kits I see have the egr pipe I have a LLY.

  32. Beyond The Cut Creations on June 18, 2022 at 11:21 pm

    I’m stuck on the bottom 13mm on the driver side up pipe at the bottom of the Turbo pedestal. I’ve got everyother bolt loose. Now I could only get a 1/4 drive to fit, Broke 2 1/4 drive ratchets and a 1/4 drive breaker bar. PB blaster for a week now, don’t want to break this bolt like one of your other videos, I’m about to try and heat the up pipe around the bolt with a torch, any other suggestions? I’m doing the Profab headers and up pipes, and the high flow y bridge kit from wcfab, cp3 10 mm stroker, fass 165 for this part of the build.

  33. tmoney101 on June 18, 2022 at 11:22 pm

    So it’s been Almost a year, are the new ones rusty?

  34. armygreen82nd on June 18, 2022 at 11:22 pm

    Game Changer….. Just ordered HSP Ceramic Billet Manifolds! We shall see what happens!

  35. Nathan G60 on June 18, 2022 at 11:23 pm

    Last mod before I sell my LBZ. Thanks for all the help with your vids. Ill miss em for sure!

  36. Kevin Boyd on June 18, 2022 at 11:25 pm


  37. Jerry Easterday on June 18, 2022 at 11:26 pm

    Just what make is your front bumper, I like the profile of the bumper to the gm truck. Thanks and keep up the great information.

  38. MBDiesel on June 18, 2022 at 11:26 pm

    You should do an outside sound clip comparison, how big is the sound difference?

  39. Jake The Snake on June 18, 2022 at 11:26 pm

    I can’t find the right Uppipe could you help me out?

  40. Mississippi Mud Team on June 18, 2022 at 11:27 pm

    does it really change the sound

  41. Ross St. Hartley on June 18, 2022 at 11:28 pm

    Does the kit come with hardware to attach the down pipe to the bracket?

  42. Nathan G on June 18, 2022 at 11:28 pm

    You need to put anti seize on all manifold bolts and torque to spec

  43. PyroJoe on June 18, 2022 at 11:29 pm

    Hell can you come down south and help me find and inspect a duramax for me? 🙂

  44. RepublicShane35 on June 18, 2022 at 11:29 pm

    Have you added an egt probe since installing these?
    With the coating I’d think the more fair temp gun reading would have been on the up pipe just as it exits the manifold. But either way. That was quite the drop.

  45. Beau Smith on June 18, 2022 at 11:31 pm

    What was the discount code?

  46. RepublicShane35 on June 18, 2022 at 11:34 pm

    These suck so much more to do on the lml frame with the control arm mounts being above the frame. Lol. Had to watch again to see what the trick was for the bolts. Need to hack up an Allen key now!!

  47. Ian Cook on June 18, 2022 at 11:35 pm

    Why did you not use high temp anti seize on all the bolts?

  48. Magucci13 on June 18, 2022 at 11:38 pm

    When I first bought my LLY and started learning about Duramax motors (and diesel in general). I noticed just how cramped and small all the piping was, especially the exhaust manifolds. I always thought to myself I wonder how much more power these trucks could make just by flowing better. Glad to see they actually work. I bet you’d notice and even bigger difference after a stroker pump and wind her up to 4k

  49. Rémi on June 18, 2022 at 11:39 pm

    Crazy how restrictive the factory exhaust stuff is on the duramax. From maniffolds to downpipe.

  50. Mark Miller on June 18, 2022 at 11:39 pm

    I would love to bring my duramax to you and help you and learn from the best
