I honestly dont see why they wouldnt fit... If the Eagle head's exhaust ports are different then that would be the only problem. No one has ever enlightened me on the matter.

Supposedly from what I have heard you can use manifolds from a Grand Cherokee SRT8, they're shaped different than the LX versions (they have a longer neck, look like mid length headers) and they have the right port shape.

They're flatter towards the bottom by the tubes. Eagle heads are very similar to 6.1 heads. Alot more noticeable here:



Compared to:

Ill be honest man idk... until someone tries we wont really know for sure those gasket holes may be too small and the header tubes maybe too small. I say this because the eagle heads flow so much more air than the old heads they may leak bad who knows...

The only person that i can think of off the top of my head that would know or could find out would be Anthony at ARH! He could easily test this for us without us wasting any money! Alright Anthony its your time to shine again please tell us if it is possible!

You are absolutely right, its been a long week, we just rebuilt the prime mover and installed a new genset on the ship I'm stationed on. ******* 3406 weighs as much as a small car and the genset isn't much lighter. It's fixed now.

im gonna try soon as i get the chance. and they flow better cuz diff port design and shape, not cuz they bigger. its just a guess though.
