Ok, So just to overcheck the obvious. So swapping in the OBX headers, I will not have to make ANY modifications to the rest of my exhaust? Downpipe/Intermediate pipe, o2 sensor locations, Nothing... Besides just bending a dipstick tube and/or swapping it with the SRT8 (how hard is the swap, or is it simple to just bend out of the way without reprocussions?).

Do you have a part number for the OBX headers?

You get a mid pipe with it. You need either an srt cat back or have a muffler welded on like I did. You can keep the stock tail pipe. I took my dipstick out and am having it bent at a shop with a pipe bender right now. Didn't need a dipstick at the time of install cuz my new block already had a freeze plug in the dipstick hole.

Re: Durango headers?

What did you do with the cats? Just cut out the stock ones and put them in? About how much did the install cost you? PM if you don't want to share with the world.

Mine? It didn't come with cats in the mid pipes but I will have the stock cats welded back in at some point. Installation was free

Re: Durango headers?

Stock cats wont fit in the mid pipes as too big. I fitted the higher flow Kooks Green Edge ones as wont through a code like others they say.

Unless you put a mandrel bend in to drop the cats or relocate them. But thanks for the tip on the green edge ones! Might consider going that route too

Re: Durango headers?

I looked into moving them further back but they wont heat up enough to work correctly and throw a code once more. If you looked at my thread you will see I looked at using transitions to lower the stock cats enough to work, but that was until I found they had been damaged previously.
