OBX is the only one I know that was "definitely going to make them". Since then, they've told me to check back in 4 weeks about 3 times now. So I'll be emailing them again in another week. I think I already know the response. They said they'd be shortys.

Gibson was looking for a truck to finish development, probably ended up giving up.

Not looking good especially with rumors that the 4.7L will be out of production in ~1-2 years.

I have been thinking if some cheap 3rd gen long tubes would fit physically in there, and could just cut the flange off and make a new flange(fairly inexpensive) and weld it on. Or just make an adapter and bolt it all together. Not sure if it'd work out though. We did compare a hemi exhaust gasket to a 4.7 gasket and the ports appeared to pretty much line up. The bolt holes were not inline(which is good if using an adapter).

Pacesetter long tubes for a 3rd gen can be had for like $300 IIRC(maybe I'm wrong? but I swear that's what they were brand new). Maybe another $100 in fabbing flanges, and then a couple hundred in ceramic coating, not too expensive, just labor intensive.

Hmmm, i'll have to look into that cuz i have a set of srt8 shorties! my work has a lasr cutter, maybe i can get some flanges made up!

on a side note, a friend of mine rolled his '05 hemi ram, drunk, so i scored it and now have lots to experiment with

If you make a set of flanges keep me in mind, I'd like a set. I think I know a couple other people who would too. You could use a gasket for a template. I looked into it about a year ago a company said they'd make a set for ~$100 IIRC if I provided the gaskets. IIRC that price was from columbia river bending(or something like that).

First thing though would be to remove the stock exhaust and get a set of 3rd gen hemi headers and just see if they will physically fit.

Well, if i would have to get a gasket to make a template anyways, i think , in the interest of performance, i'd gladly knock off one of me manifolds to see about fitment against an srt header, hemi and srt share port size and fitment. and i just so happen to have a set of those!

I didn't really understand your last post, but you could compare a 4.7 exhaust gasket to your srt header. I assume the srt header is off a 4th gen hemi? I'm not sure if 3rd and 4th gen hemi's share the same heads/port spacing.

No, the srt header is off an '06 chrysler 300 that my buddy owns, he put long tubes on it and what i was sayin is if i need a gasket as a template anyway then i would get a set so i could replace the one if i were to take my stock mani off to compare bolt pattern.

Oh gotcha. Would be a good project, and long tubes on the 4.7 would be a huge power adder, especially with a tune. I wish I had time to do it but maybe in the future...
