SRT manifolds fit just fine from what I read

^^Agreed,The 6.1 and 5.7 block are almost the same and the headers will bolt up,you might need some faburcation on the header flanges though.

last I heard american racing headers had some...but were pricey. You may have better luck getting an exhaust shop to make a custom set.

Custom headers setup is going to cost you a pretty coin,I think it would be worth it purchase some but if you can find a shop that will do it for a good price then git-r-done.I think the American Racing headers are a grand...

actually no..the thing is alot of the people on some of these sites dont realize that you dont need to drop a $1k to get something nice. ive built plenty of cars and have worked with enough to know that a great set doesnt cost more then $500. many highly named companys dont break the $500 mark, and most offer a "shorty" header that still gives you gains and will bolt to the stock exhaust.

today, i got an email back from BBK, they said they are having there chief engineer see if he can do something.

Also i was looking at a fellow students Ram 1500 today, the shorty manifolds on his truck look damn near the same as ares...so worse comes to worse i might look into that.

well....when none are made...then you cant get some for $500. But if you have connections to some of the manufacturers...then you may do it. Please keep the 5.7 guys updated
