chEbay....Gibson headers are available. They are short and should fit your stock dual down pipes.

I have a 95 2500 Ram V10 with headers and a K&N cold air intake..I know this should bump your gas milage up 3-4 MPG... I have a 6in lift and 35in pro comp extremes and I get 11MPG in town and 14-15 highway...just a inside on someone who has one.

if you do headers try for long tube headers not shorties like gibson makes. long tubes give you alil more torque which is what these engines are built for. i have long tubes however i dont know what brand they are cause they were on the truck when i bought it.
