Can you just bolt on the SRT exhaust manifolds/down pipe?
I would think that would line up with the exhaust and you'd just need a reducer to join the larger downpipe up...no?
I'm using the SRT manifolds, but not the mid pipes. So, I am having the flange and flared end cut off my stock mid pipes and new 3" ones welded on. There is also a difference in manifold length that has to be accounted for. And btw, mid pipes are $1200 per side.

I wasn't able to get the pipes done today, but I did get the SRT valve covers I ordered. Pipe will get done tomorrow and by the evening, I should be rolling.

Thanks for sharing. Seems relatively plug and play with the exception of the exhaust

So yesterday I had the exhaust finished and now she's drivable. I did have a hiccup due to my own stupidity though. It was trying to overheat and it took me a while to figure out that the plug that was in the water pump for shipping, didn't get removed 🤡. So.. after hours of looking and speculating and freaking out, I found it had pushed from the water pump to the lower radiator neck. Whew, what a relief. My brain went to worse case scenario, that it was a head gasket leak or worse yet, a cracked head. After that, everyting is awesome. No engine light, runs smooth and strong. I can only go half throttle or less right now and it's killing me. Can't wait to get it dyno tuned!

It was between Allpar and Injected Engineering. I went with IE because they gave me alot of good advice and I visited with them and talked to Tyler for about an hour. They do great work.

Yes, it's an additional $400. My budget is shot right now, so it will have to wait. Just the motor tune is $600.
What is the ballpark figure of what the swap ran you if you don’t mind sharing?

It will be close to $8500 after the tune.

Just posted another YouTube video recapping the install and parts that I needed and the overall experience.

Just watched all 9 parts of your epic engine swap series, Tony. The videos were brilliant in how they detailed what was done and what was next to be done. Mad props to you, brother. Well done!
