Default JBA Cat4ward Headers (need help)

Already installed the Airaid PowerAid Throttle Body Spacer, and Airaid Intake System. Just looking to install JBA Cat4ward Headers, but ive heard from every place i go to, to not install them, they all say they will viod your warranty they leak, or throw codes, and you loose gas mileage!! So now i want someone that has put headers on there 2009-2012 5.7 hemi.. What should i do?

Also looking for some tips for the rest of my exuast, and i can't find a good performance chip set for the 2012 ram, guessing thats because of the new tranny..

I haven't heard of the shorties throwing codes but the long tubes have been. I think they been putting some kinda fouler (whatever there called) to trick the computer. I should be getting my JBA shorties in next week hopefully and installed by next weekend. I think you need to use the search button because there's a but of info out there about the JBA shorties in particular and stop listening to whoever is telling you that your stock manifold is better than an aftermarket. Besides a dealer can't instantly void your warranty, ever heard of the moss magnuson act?

I've already installed JBA's Cat4ward shorties on my 10' Hemi Ram,
over a week ago, no issues at all, no leaks, no codes...just Power and Torque!

Tons of info and Install pics and tips here:
http://www.ramforumz.com/showthread.php?t=106126

Doing a friends install today on his Ram, soon as I'm done my morning coffee.

You really should look at getting a Magnaflow Y pipe and Muffler first,
The headers run best when all other restrictions are removed.

oh ya, and ditch the throttle body spacer, do a search for "Fastman Throttle body"

who told you all that? the same person that sold you a t/b spacer? My JBAs are on order and I'll add the BRH's thread after my install. On a side note, I've been running JBA longtubes on my car for 3.5 years now with no problems.

the only reason why you'd lose gas mileage is b/c you start driving it harder. your exhaust will sound better and you'll like the new found power. JBA short-tube headers only replace your stock exhaust manifold and nothing else (i.e. cats, O2 sensors) is moved so you won't throw any codes. if you use MOPAR exhaust gaskets and torque the bolts in the correct sequence to the correct specs they will not leak. they won't void your warranty. My vote is to install them and replace your muffler with a magnaflow and it'll feel and sound like a whole new truck.

I installed the JBA headers on my truck about a month ago and have had no issues at all. JBA says right on their website that their shorty headers do NOT void factory warranties.
They should just bolt on and go. All they do is replace the exhaust manifolds, so there will be no issues with codes being thrown, etc.
The quality on the JBA headers is very good. That being said, your installing them correctly and following the directions well will determine whether you have issues with them leaking.
I read quite a few install and review threads about them here before i installed them on my truck and i got mixed reviews on the JBA gaskets. Because of that I decided to order Mopar gaskets ( 05038099AA and 05038098AA ) for headers.
The install on the headers is a bit tedious, but i am very happy with the end result, and the headers are top notch quality wise.
Hope this helps.
