Default Hemi headers

Anybody know of any manufacturers out there that have high flow headers out there for the 09 5.7 Hemis? Want to swap out the manifolds, to restrictive, had a set on an 06 Ram that I had and want to do the same to my 09. I can't seem to find anything out there.

Thanks.

You might have to wait a bit longer, I havn't seena nything for the '09s yet either except one set of shorty headers. Have to tried any local shops to see if they can fab up a set for you?

I could, but wouldn't that void a warranty if it's not factory or aftermarket piece. Plus more expensive would it not?

It won't void your warranty any more than the muffler you have welded in right now, a part has to CAUSE the problem, not just be present on the vehicle. If you melted your rear bumper due to high EGTs then yes...not warranty covered... but for most things, changing the headers/exhaust will not void warranties. If your dealership refuses to touch it cuz it's on then find another dealership since they shouldn't refuse to touch it.

For muffler shops, depending on where you go, but normally they're lower or a comparable price to aftermarket and you know they're made for your truck. Also make sure they have a mandrel bender not just a regular pipe bender, which can crease the pipe, and check their welding...make sure it's seamless, not sloppy tacks.

Someone here definitely knows what he's talking about. Good recommendations. Yes, make sure they have a mandrel bender. Most shops do not because a good mandrel bender is very expensive and you need a technician with experience to do proper mandrel bends. As far as a welder, make sure they have a really good welder fab this up. Any college kid can claim to know how to weld, but remember that these exhausts go through thousands of heat cycles so that can destroy a cheap weld. Be sure you know what to look for. And go with a shop that has experience using stainless steel. Don't go for that aluminumized steel crap. If you do then you may as well have bought a Ford Ranger instead of a Ram. 300 series stainless steel all the way. And if all of that sounds too complicated, just wait a bit longer until Borla or Corsa come out with a rocking set of headers.

A lot of vehicles from the factory come with stainless steel exhausts, but they're all 400-Series, and they're not heat treated. The only vehicle I know of that comes with 300-Series stainless that's heat treated was the C5 Z06, and the current C6 ZR-1. There is a big difference between 400-series and 300-series, as well as having the "T" designation of heat treated.
