  1. Install a gasket on each exhaust port. Fasten the gasket to the engine by installing one mounting bolt on the forward side of each exhaust port.
  2. Position the exhaust manifold next to the heads, and install it by sliding the manifold to the right until it comes to rest on the bolts that were installed in the previous step.
  3. Line up each gasket and install the remaining bolt and spacer on each exhaust port.

    Note: Make sure that each gasket is properly aligned before tightening the mounting bolts on that exhaust port.

  4. Tighten each of the mounting bolts to 50 N·m (37 lb·ft).
  5. Install the turbocharger on the mounting studs on the exhaust manifold. Refer to "6.3.3 Turbocharger Installation" .
  6. Connect the batteries and lower the hood.


    Diesel engine exhaust and some of its constituents are known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects, and other reproductive harm.‪

    • Always start and operate an engine in a well ventilated area.
    • If operating an engine in an enclosed area, vent the exhaust to the outside.
    • Do not modify or tamper with the exhaust system or emission control system.
  7. Start the engine and make sure there is oil pressure. Shut down the engine and check for leaks.
