Default Kooks 6.1 ona 5.7?

Found a guy on craigslist posting a set of 6.1 Headers from a srt8 300C, says they will fit on a 5.7, is this true? and how would the fitment be on a Ram? Would they work? Just curious, hes asking like well less than half the price of new Kooks headers.

hod rod mag has an article this month with a 5.7 on the dyno with 6.1 srt headers on it. They came off a truck, dont know how different the car headers would be though.

I searched hotrod.com and couldnt find the article, I was just curious, I can always scoop up a pair of Hedman or Pacesetter for like 300 bucks uncoated.

they used srt8 exhaust manifolds, i think the headers will fit the engine but not the truck, not 100% sure.

I'm pretty sure your 5.7L truck engine exhaust port size and shape won't match the 6.1L car engine configuration.

yeah I emailed Kooks and they said it wouldnt fit either, I would think the only prob would be where the steering shaft is in comparison to a 300.....oh well, worth a try, anyone in the VA area with a 300 go get em, he wants 500 bucks which aint bad since theyre like 1200 bucks new...
