I think just srt bolts and gasket are needed? True? The member I'm going to get these from had told me the 6.1 headers on a 5.7'L. Are equaluvant to JBA shorties...

I would check into that. The 6.1 motor as a whole is upgraded I would assume the ports are a tad bigger to accommodate whats goin on inside of it.

Problem with that is that they're for the pickup trucks, which were never offered with the 6.1. So any trucks they test fit on with the 6.1 were probably stroked 5.7s, which would have the 5.7 heads and ports.

I have seen others selling there srt headers
Stating ''if you 5.7 guys want more power @ a fraction of the cost of shorties then 6.1 headers will do'' and other means bye that.. So now I'm confused on what my out come will be. I have not found any data on this ill maybe need to call a dealership and or mopar center like that of what was suggested.. Thanks

ok

the 6.1 works but there is an egr passage to be filled/blocked off. Many have already done this, I recommend you go to LX forums to see the details.

Ok how would you fill or block it?? I can use the predator to turn off'but the ports from the two different headers are different. And looks like I'd have to drill a hole for the egr on the 6.1 headers am I right?..

Steve said it best. Search on lxforums for your answer or shoot BigDave a PM over their. He has 6.1 headers on his 5.7.
