Default Manifold and Risers Manufacturer

Need to replace my exhaust on my SCR 3000. I need dry joint 7 degree risers and manifolds. I see a lot of manufacturers out there for aftermarket ones. I am interested in hearing any experience good or bad anyone has had with any of them. I do not believe barr manufacturers a 7 degree riser so I don't think they are in the mix. Any help is appreciated.

Thanks.

I just put sierra on mine, non dry joint though. Go2marine.com was the best price I found. No issues whatsoever, however I found exhaust gaskets for automotive were much easier to install, because the outside 2 bolts are hooked rather than holes. I was able to start the 2 outermost bolts then slip the gasket down in. Much easier than trying to use the kind with 4 holes. I failed to record the part number, however. They were from the performance section at O'Reilly auto. This is the manifold to block gasket, not the joint gaskets.



One of my engines has dryjoint, and i used Barr gaskets on it (parts did not need replacement). Again, no issues.

I do not have experience with dry joint but have used both sierra and Osco before with out any issues.

Dry joint is kinda a cool design. One of my engines has it. Looks like they will last MUCH longer than my normal ones.



That being said, they are more expensive. Possibly a wash.
