You may want to consider having the collectors on the headers rewelded. They are known to leak. Also be SURE to use OEM Mopar gaskets.

Little pin holes. I haven't seen them yet on mine. Given i still have to do something to them anyways.. a proper tear down to retighten the bolts. I got like 2 or 4 bolts needing to be tighten down.

Re: OBX Long Tube header 2007 5.7 Install

I read about retightening the bolts after so long. I'll take a flashlight with me when I go to pick up the headers to see if they have a lot of pin holes.

Re: OBX Long Tube header 2007 5.7 Install

Nice I'm actually working on my bachelor's in mechanical engineering right now. If you can't do math, you might as well stop before you spend your money.
