I had my exhaust manifold bolts replaced by the dealer for free since I think there is a recall for replacing them. I received a call from Dodge notifying me to take my truck it into any dealer and had no problems with it what so ever.

i also have the same noise, but i have the 4.7

ive heard this is a problem with the hemi, but cant find anything on the 4.7 although im sure they used the same shitty bolts on all of their motors

i bought my truck used 2 months ago and purchased a 4 year 48xxx warranty thats bumper to bumper... i wonder if it will cover this or if im better off doing it myself.

i do wonder if i dont do anything, will the problem get worse and cause more damage?

any advice or help would be great

Borla exhaust and low profile toolbox for now
